">Sometimes it seems like BGG protects there trolls,  bringing the hammer down swiftly on those who get tangled up with them. Good observation >What's their incentive not to? What's their incentive to?"

">To make the site more useful as a resource, rather than to be a social hang-out. I find BGG very useful as a database, but it's too much of a Disneyland as a social hang-out for my tastes."

About Me
Board Wargamer living in the Philippines since 1994.

I'm currently learning ASL and VASL
https://www.facebook.com/groups/vaslmeetup/

If you're into ASL please check out the Global ASL Ladder:
http://aslladder.com

I'm a member of the the Philippine Historical Boardgamers Club (Est. 1995) a.k.a ]Philboardgamers. We meet at least once a month in Metro Manila. We have a Facebook group for keeping in touch between club meetings: https://www.facebook.com/groups/philboardgamers

I have a collection of aging wargame magazines going back to AH General #1 and S&T #1 and amateur publications from the early years of the hobby.

Look me up if you're ever in the Philippines, we can drink some San Miguel beers, shoot the bull, and maybe even play a game.

"The few CDGs I've tried make me feel like I'm playing Go with cards, not what I look for in a wargame."


Noted this over in a Russian Campaign discussion.


I suggest trying some of the less popular/more wargamish ones.

In particular, Empire of the Sun or Clash of Monarchs - they feel a lot

more like you're playing a wargame with cards. =D

There are still some disturbing qualities, but it is an interesting approach.
