I have some big news; my World War II desert game Rommel at Gazala is now available in a professional edition from Lock 'n Load Publishing. This is really the culmination of twenty-five years of game history, as it was originally designed for professional publication in Command magazine, but for various reasons, that came to naught. Now, LnL is issuing it in a really good-looking and more functional version, featuring larger counters and a much larger map.
Look for this…Continue

I have been thinking about investing in EURO FRONT II from columbia games. I am afraid it will end up as one of those monster games on my shelf that I never get to play. I figure I don't have to set the WHOLE thing up. I could just play the smaller scenarios. Does anybody have this. How does it play in sections?

large counters are now my friends.Continue
Andy Loakes, designer of Toulon 1793, takes us behind the scenes of his first published wargame. Why hasn't someone done a game on this topic before? Andy and Tom ponder that issue, along with other questions about Napoleonic history and wargaming.

Recently a group of us assembled at the University of Ottawa to matrix-game the current conflict regarding the self-styled “Islamic State” in Iraq and Syria. For practical reasons and to limit the number of players/teams, the game largely focused on Iraq. The purpose, as with an …Continue
I have finally decided to play this game, as I bought it direct on it's first P500 listing.
Just started to punch out the counters, only to realize that the quality of the die cutting and/or printing alignment is awful.
Letters have been cut off either from the side or right across the top, boats and subs have their afts cut off.
I have not seen something this bad for a long long time. Surprising since it came from GMT.
Has anyone else had this…Continue
Richard Borg talks about everything from the Command & Colour wargames to the X-Men games from Pressman (with a cameo from Stan Lee). We also discuss the Kickstarter for his new World War I game, Mutant Chronicles: Siege Of The Citadel, and much more. Plus, a game off the beaten path that should have an electronic version, but doesn't, really. © 2015 Tom Grant

I'm planning on running this as a drop-in event, though it would be great if I could get a couple of people
interested in playing at least a couple of days worth of it.
Right now, there are a handful of folk signed up for it - but looking at the list,
I'm guessing most aren't planning on playing for a large part of the con. Spread the
word - this can be a lot of…
