Why I Am A Wargaming Grognard

Why I am a wargame grognard--reposted (and expanded)--from Board Game Geek here.

For starters, it's because I'm old enough to be one. Born in 1959 (you do the math). Started wargaming seriously in 1974 (you do the math again). A lot of grognards--at least those…

Point 2 Point 43 has been recorded!

My Interview With Alan Emrich at Victory Point Games

I thought I'd share the links to the interview I did with Alan over at VPG. I'm doing my best to include as much wargaming coverage as I can at The Gaming Gang without without driving off the Euro gamers. ;)
