A few years ago I decided to collect a copy of every game mentioned in Berg's "Basic Library" of wargames as it appeared in S&T/SPI's book: Wargame Design. I was lucky this summer to find a copies of HS's Manassas, GDW's Crimea, and GS/R's The Battle of Britain without breaking the bank.

In my just-released episode 9 of The Board Game Show podcast, I interview Blocks In The East designer, Emanuele Santandrea.
I got the word that Donald Featherstone passed away last night.... He was, without a doubt, the father of modern miniature (historical) wargaming. Starting with his book: War Games (1962), Featherstone (in the UK) was almost single-highhandedly responsible for the growth of the hobby with his now famous newsletter and numerous books. So well-regarded was his written work that at one point Games Workshop required their game designers to study Featherstone's book Skirmish…Continue

King Philip's War & Tide at Sunrise (MMP) - any opinions on these two games?
I bought KPW from some house clearance ebayer, but when it arrive it also had TaS and Waterloo20 (VPG) inside it. TaS had half the counters missing but I was able to print off the missing ones, but I am getting close to picking up these two games to play and was after some opinions about them - good or bad.
