The Dark Valley and getting started

After a lengthy setup we finally started playing The Dark Valley today. I wasn't too up on the rules and didn't pay attention to the special German abilities in the 1941 start so when I setup I did not stack my units optimally. Since we are learning this one I took it in stride and opened the war and so far I really like how the game plays. We just finished turn 1 and are about to start turn 2. I need to reorganize a bit and use those special rules the German's have to their full…

What does board wargaming do a PC wargame cannot?

What does board wargaming do a PC wargame cannot?

^ More at the link

That is a good question. People often ask me why I bother playing these huge board wargames when I can just play almost the same thing with a Matrix Games PC title or a John Tiller game.

I just posted a new article to Line of Departure Online Features.  This one covers one of my personal favorite units of World War II, and one of the most effective of the Pacific War, the United States Army's 77th Infantry Division.  Not a traditional elite like the Marines, or a band of hand-picked and…

What I like about this most is the use of a solid core doors with 1X3 trim functioning as a Dam on one side - something I have done. For me is the best part is the pour on epoxy covering over the field of pennies - Me, I am thinking something similar done in a grid of somekind....

Warfighter game ends in total mission op failure

My game of #Warfighter  ended pretty badly. Both soldiers got about 3 objective locations in. Then I got two cartel lookouts and they in turned spawned about 2 tangos each. Before I knew it the situation had gotten out of control and Sgt. Holte had been shot twice while Pvt. Thomas was suppressed so badly he could only use his actions to try and get out of being pinned.



The spec op was pretty bad and by turn 5 I gave up. Those drug huts would…

I've Been Diced! episode 61: Worthington Games

I drop by the HQ for Worthington Games to talk about their wargames, past, present, and future. Forged In Fire, Band Of Brothers, Cowboys, Hold The Line, and others -- what kind of games does Worthington choose to publish? And how does a small publisher find its niche in today's market? Plus, this episode's "Game Off The Beaten Path" is a world-famous fantasy writer's design.
