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…

Revisiting the “ISIS Crisis”

Recently a group of us assembled at the University of Ottawa to matrix-game the current conflict regarding the self-styled “Islamic State” in Iraq and Syria. For practical reasons and to limit the number of players/teams, the game largely focused on Iraq. The purpose, as with an …

The Hunters........bad counters....grrr

I have finally decided to play this game, as I bought it direct on it's first P500 listing.

Just started to punch out the counters, only to realize that the quality of the die cutting and/or printing alignment is awful.

Letters have been cut off either from the side or right across the top, boats and subs have their afts cut off.

I have not seen something this bad for a long long time. Surprising since it came from GMT.

Has anyone else had this…

I've Been Diced! episode 64: Richard Borg

Richard Borg talks about everything from the Command & Colour wargames to the X-Men games from Pressman (with a cameo from Stan Lee). We also discuss the Kickstarter for his new World War I game, Mutant Chronicles: Siege Of The Citadel, and much more. Plus, a game off the beaten path that should have an electronic version, but doesn't, really. © 2015 Tom Grant

Empires of the middle ages at CSWExpo - grand campaign:

I'm planning on running this as a drop-in event, though it would be great if I could get a couple of people

interested in playing at least a couple of days worth of it.

Right now, there are a handful of folk signed up for it - but looking at the list,

I'm guessing most aren't planning on playing for a large part of the con. Spread the

word - this can be a lot of…

Finally, I get around to my 2014 wrap-up....

Well, better late than never….  A brief wrap up of 2014 gaming.  I have to say that there were quite a few surprises for me last year. The biggest of which was that I enjoy card-based wargames.  I have always avoided these due to a general dislike for card games as a kid growing up in Yosemite N.P., California. (They were the only games that were portable enough to bring with us to the back-country ranger station my father manned.) It all started with Spearpoint 1943 by CEG; it was…

Important Personal Announcement

I can make this public now. The news is that I resigned as staff developer with Turning Point Simulations, and that they are putting the remaining games in the hands of the able Lembit Tohver. The sad fact is that with a full-time online teaching job at APUS, a part-time job in the classroom at La Roche College, and the homestretch of my work on a second Masters degree at APUS, I just ran out of time. There was no way that I could devote the time to the projects that they deserve, or meet…
