I understand the ancients itch – I have definitely got mine again after mostly two years away. I am about to embark (when I say about I mean hopefully This year!) on a foolish 30 games in 30 days using my own fast play rules. I also have noted that you seem interested in L’Art de la Guerre (I saw your comments on related youtube videos about a month ago). i have not played them but have been waiting 5 years for them to be translated into English. i have them, but I think I am nervous to play them as they will be even better than i expect and I will begin to play them to the exclusion of anything else!
Rod – Panda is referring to an oversized pig I use in ww2 skirmish to represent unknown enemy forces.
