Long-lost World War II sub found off Swedish coast.

A dream coming true

Ever since I got into wargaming as a pre-teenager I had the desire to be a designer of some great wargame or to own a great wargame company. Something that would let me leave my mark for the future.



I've had the chance over the years to add my by-line to a few designs, playtests, and the like ad have greatly appreciated the opportunity to do each one. But I was still not completely fulfilled. I was still not an owner of a great wargame company.



Sure I'd had discussions… Continue

Twilight Struggle: Chinese Civil War Optional Rule

Randy Pippus's summary:



Chinese Civil War Variant



The Chinese Civil War Variant (Rule 12.0) that appears in C3I is accompanied by a small insert that serves as a holding space. There is also an interesting article by Jason reviewing American and Russian relations with China going back to the 19th Century and culminating in the Communist takeover.

Basically the USSR has to place 3 influence in the space to (immediately) receive the China Card face-up. The space is… Continue

The Fourth Estate Takes a Holiday

One of the most incisive commentators in the national media, in my opinion, is Robert J. Samuelson of The Washington Post and Newsweek. There are times when I don't necessarily agree with him, but I usually respect his reasoning, and unlike the vast majority of the talking… Continue

Twilight Struggle: Historical Example of Play Project

Here's what the board looks like…
