Critical Mass reached with buying games

At the start of this year, I had made a decision not to buy anymore games, except for those on pre-order. Apart from few exceptions (ahem), I have stuck to this pretty well, and I have even cancelled some pre-orders!

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.

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.

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.
