Welcome to the official social platform for ConsimWorld
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…Continue
Currently, I'm working on the next issue of Line of Departure, and in anticipation of its publication, I'm offering a special on five back issues of the magazine.

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...)

I think in my very first blog I harped on people labeling games as "beginner's wargames" in spite of the fact they were priced at over $60 and had more than 20 pages of rules.

My apologies to anyone who has felt my comment on the BGG group has caused upset, anger and offense. It has certainly stirred a whole lot of crap.
That was not the intention, I was just voicing my opinion on a matter. Next time I will be a lot more careful what I say.
Keep calm and carry on wargaming :)
It would seem that as long as you have been around for 20+ years and are pre approved by the Troll Team you are allowed to do what you want, how you want to whom ever you please.
Should someone complain about ill treatment, or make comments that go against 'popular' thinking you are sometimes targeted for special treatment, which we have seen the results and discussed before.
Yet, should I or someone come online to BGG or CSW and share what happened to them they are…Continue
