I've Been Diced! episode 57: Greg Smith on The Hunters and computer wargames

Greg Smith, the designer of The Hunters and the upcoming Silent Victory, talks about his games, solitaire wargames in general, his work on computer wargames at HPS Simulations, and why boardgame design can be more challenging than computer wargame design. Plus, Tom gives advice to wargamers visiting Paris, and he proves beyond a doubt that he cannot do impressions.

Ebola: The Nightmare Scenario

Here is my real nightmare scenario for Ebola. It has nothing to do with one or two people getting the early symptoms as they get on an airplane, and then debarking to spread it into new population centers. It is much worse than that.  There is the possibility that this could turn into the modern equivalent of the Black Death.

The real nightmare, as I see it, can happen in…

Jesse Ventura's "Win"

Legally, Jesse Ventura was entirely correct in his lawsuit against the estate of Chris Kyle, and he surmounted a pretty high barrier in order to win. Yet, what's legal and what's right are entirely different things, and as my old legal history professor at Duquesne University used to say, when they meet it's a happy accident. So yes, the court and the jury were probably in the right.



However...



This is a matter…

What do you grab when the ashes are falling on your house?

I had an interesting experience yesterday. About 4:30 pm, my wife came in the house to inform me that ashes were falling on the house; there was a wildfire nearby and headed our way.  It was probably time to pack up, grab the legal docs and wedding album, the laptops and iPads and maybe pack some clothes.  (we had  not received notice to leave, but the fire was only a 1/4 mile away at that point. After a few minutes of running around and packing, she brought in a couple of file boxes; "don't…

GMT West

I'm thinking about attending GMT West for the first time. My better three-quarters (my wife) has agreed to travel to Hanford on her birthday weekend. Could someone who has participated in this event give me (and others) an overview of what can be expected? (start times, how late the gaming goes, quality of hotel accommodations, what sort of games get played, etc...)

Thanks,

Dave
