Board Wargames ongoing online................

Just a few screenshots from several (ie too many !) Vassal (and one Cyberboard) PBEM games I have going at present.

Finally, a true "beginner's wargame"

I think in my very first blog I harped on people labeling games as "beginner's wargames" in spite of the fact they were priced at over $60 and had more than 20 pages of rules.  Now maybe price range and rules' length isn't the best way to determine whether a game is suitable for a novice, but for the teens I teach these features would make a poor selling points.

Summertime and the gaming is easy...... The Summer 2014 "bucket list"
