Empires in Arms (Playtest)

The Napoleonic wars for Empires in Arms by Avalon Hill is a great simulation. I have/want to play test the original map with an additional america map. Of course I/we will be at the consimworld in AZ and are looking for more players to join us. If you are interested, let me know. Looking forward to seeing you there.

I've Been Diced! episode 66: Combat systems

Our panel discusses combat systems in games — many of which we like, and a few that we don't like. Air battles that are genuinely exciting, deck-building games that lead to interesting results, the genius of Dune's commitment mechanic, a defense of hex-and-CRT wargames — all these topics, and many more, in the course of our discussion. Plus, a recently-published game off the beaten path that takes traditional wargame mechanics in an interesting direction.…

Rommel at Gazala News

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…

EURO FRONT II

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?

I've Been Diced! episode 65: Andy Loakes, designer of Toulon 1793

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. Plus, this episode's Game Off The Beaten Path is a little wargame on a major event in military history, previously thought to be ungameable. (c) 2015 Tom Grant…
