Honesty is it truly missing?

On my drive into the office this morning I got to thinking about how much I hear these various phrases in conversation:

To be honest



To tell you the truth

and I started wondering if we've declined so much as a society that we now have to advise people when we are making a factual or truthful statement. Have we become so good at lying to one another that it is the rule rather than the exception?

Is it so easy to speak in flasehoods and… Continue

An incredibly interesting, FREE game that I'm playing

I stumbled on this game by accident. It is free to play. Is supported through a variety of online discussion forums. If you like geo politics, the idea of running for office (perhaps even President), being in the military (without actual harm), or have a desire to own and operate a newspaper and potentially a business. Check this out. It is really free. Takes a little bit of work to get into the game, but once in, it's pretty amazing.

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

The Economy and Wargaming

Hopefully not a dead horse. I'm curious as to how or even if the economy is affecting your game buying. So far my wife and I have not been affected (so far, knock on my wooden head) and so I've been able to keep up with the games I'm interested in and some of the newer ones that have caught my eye. So business as usual for us.

How about for you? Any major changes to your buying habits? Are you being more selective or is it status quo?

If you're one of the 7% currently out… Continue

Initial Errata on new releases

Is it just me or does there seem to be a lot more errata being found in new releases lately? I wonder if we (as gamers) are expecting too rigorous a publication schedule from our favorite publishers. Is our impatience the cause of the errata because games are being "rushed" into print? Is it because there is a lack of playtesters or blind playtesters to ensure that items are being caught before they are being printed?

What say you?

The Economy

I wonder if the people making decisions around the world in the business community actually have any common sense.

If you think through the situation that we are in, logically, it would make more sense for businesses to expand their operations, increase their hiring and production, and spend money in an economic environment such as we find ourselves in.

Why? Every job that is lost is another income being taken out of the marketplace. Instead of having discretionary income… Continue

Gaming Time

I was sitting at home yesterday with the plague, thinking about all the games I own that I will most likely will never get to play. Not for lack of desire, butfor lack of opponents. Sad times when you can't slow down long enough to play an amazing wargame!

In Case you've wondered where Lance Nielsen has been

Your friend and mine, the crazy Briton that we love to host for Consimworld Expo, has been busy working on a new movie...Read all it about it below:

What exactly constitutes a friend? Everyone calls the people that they know "friends" but is that really the case? How do you differentiate a friend from an acquaintance? This is how I do it. Probably not correct, nothing new in that now is there?, but here we go:

A friend is someone who does not wait for you to call them, they call you.

Someone who just drops by, unexpectedly, to say hello and see how you're doing.

A friend is someone who no… Continue

Consimworld Expo 2008

WOW..Hard to believe that another Expo has come and gone already. Had a fantastic time getting to see so many of you again, and of course missing those of you who were not able to make it.

I had a great time being able to whine..errr I mean play ASL this year, I've told John Kranz that next year he is not allowed to work, he only gets to play!

Not really a lot to say, if you missed it, you missed a fantastic time. If you were there, thank you so very much for coming out… Continue

Games Wanted

Please keep in mind that I'm officially lower-middle class (that's not low class for you jokesters out there) and work for a living.

With that said I'm looking for:

The Gamers This Hallowed Ground (unpunched non-smoking environment preferred)

SPI War of the Rings Flat Tray (punched is okay as long as it is great condition and guaranteed complete)

If you have these animals and you're willing to part with them, send me a note and we'll… Continue

Wargame Museum?

Wondering if there is a Wargame Museum out there somewhere?

I keep picking up games at the local thrift and used bookstores to keep them from being consigned to the trash.
