I needed to create flags in a hurry! So I wrote a program that does just that you can check out the details here >>

this is a new one for me:
Whilst I guess I was not contributing content to the actual discussion at hand and responding to the off topic (now deleted by poster) in the thread...7 days? niiice.
I get the message.
This year as an optional assignment for my political science class on peacebuilding and civil conflict, I gave my students the option of writing an interactive story rather than the usual research papers using Inklewriter. Four groups decided to do so, and the result is four online…Continue

Teutoburger Wald depicts the battle which took place between three Roman Legions under the command of Govenor Varus, and a confederation of Germanic tribes.
Varus was en-route to winter quarters when he and his three Legions were caught in a cunning trap. Surrounded on all sides, this was to be a battle of pure survival.
The outcome for Varus was not good. He and his three Legions were destroyed, leaving this to be the worst (or very close to) defeat for…Continue

Many games come oh so very close to being good, or event great, but don't...quite...make it. That's the topic for this episode, noble failures. Even if they didn't completely succeed, from a design or a market perspective, these games deserve respect. (Many wargames included.) Plus, Tom reviews Eclipse, both the new iPad version and the original boardgame.Continue
Here are a few screen shots from this game. I have just started the playing it, and so far it looks and feels very good and smooth, with a good user friendly interface.I will do a better review soon once I have had a chance to play it for a while.…Continue
In my just-released episode 7 of The Board Game Show podcast, I un-box B-29 Superfortress by Legion Wargames:
In the late 80’s I hovered over an imaginary bomber crew and conducted make-believe, yet mostly historical missions over WWII Germany. My heart raced as ME 109s and FW 190’s strafed my flying fortress. I worried…

‘Last Stand at Herr Tavern - Gettysburg’ or ‘How to employ a reverse slope defence and render enemy artillery useless’
This is my second run-through of the Herr’s Ridge scenario for GMT’s Three Day’s of Gettysburg (3rd Ed., 2004). In my first play I’d accidentally included Devin’s brigade, meaning the Union had far more strength then they should have. You can read that report here:…
I recently got introduced to the CC series, and for the most part it's been fun. I have both Last Stand Arnhem and The Longest Day. In these games you control squads of infantry and tanks, as well as calling in airstrikes and artillery.
You must also monitor your soldier's mental health. I had a recent incident where a few of my guys panicked and ran. Interesting...and yet realistic. You try not to put them in the so-called 'suicide missions' too much. These copies I have are…Continue
Illustrated Session Report: The first shots of Gettysburg and the fight for Herr’s Ridge
This is an AAR of my first ever scenario of a Great Battles of the American Civil War game. I picked up both 3DoG (Three Days of Gettysburg) and RBoC (Red Badge of Courage) at the same time, but Gettysburg grabbed my interest so I investigated it first.
It took me about a week to read through the rules several times, and check many queries on BGG and CSW. This is a…

Tom and Grand Dalgliesh of Columbia Games talk about their Kickstarted new edition of the classic block game Napoleon. We also delve into the secret of Columbia Games' sustained success, the history of the company (including Hârn), some possible new games, and the reasons why the real history of Macbeth would make an awesome game. Plus, a game off the beaten track that's the best solitaire wargame you'll ever play that doesn't have any pieces.…Continue

I am finally getting around to typing up a new scenario set in Jerusalem during the Six Dat war..it's been in the works for years, but never seemed to have the time to finsish it.
Planning to post a copy here and also in the BGG Files section for the game.
Would be good to get some feedback and maybe play results when it is done and it probably still needs a great deal of tweaking.
