    Hmmmm... Not sure what you're referring to. Is there an "Oscar and Felix" reference in some wargame? (Or are you using a different meaning of grognard?)

    Oscar and Felix on the map is a direct reference to "The Odd Couple", an old Niel Simon play that was later made into a movie in '68 - very funny. They were diametrically opposed roommates forced to live together as they both went through divorces.

    PD

    Nope, that is what I meant. I noticed that immediately as Oscar's corner is dirty, unkempt and a total mess, while Felix's Desk is neat, tidy, and everyhting appears to be in it's place.

    I did! The "very old meat" quote was a line from the movie.

    Never saw the movie. Only remember the old television series with Tonay Randall (Felix) and Jack Klughman (Oscar).
