Borodino 1812 from Tactics and Strategy (not Strategy & Tactics)

I bought this game last weekend from the Polish publisher for 59zl, which worked out to be just over £10 + £3 P&P.

At that price, it did have me a little concerned, but I had spoken to a friend to had bought from them before and they had assured me the quality is good.

its still alive

Hi Jim, yes it is alive, I just haven't found anyone interested in playtesting this.

The game is NOT PZL/PZB/AIW although it originated as such. I have made a new game based on some of the concepts and feel of the game, but the game is designed around being an internet/network hosted game with a completely different set of combat rules and mechanics, taking advantage of FOW and theoretics of combat.

The latest version is 0.29.8 which can be downloaded at…

I've Been Diced! episode 58: Mike Nagel on Flying Colors and more

Mike Nagel talks about his Flying Colors series of Age of Sail wargames, his new "captaincy" game covering the same era, Sun of York, and what drew him to design a game about the battle of Attu. Plus, Tom lunges headfirst into the subject of what is a wargame. Actually, he talks about when the question is worth asking, and when it isn't.
