Link to PodCast for the lads. Go take a listen!
What is in the PodCast?
Listen to the guys cover more on Guns of Gettysburg, and their frustration with poorly written rule books, contrasting opinions about whether it is a game versus a simulation. A Historical replay or a Battle?
Smack talk, they explore No Question of Surrender and the Grand Tactical Series with a bunch of tips at 1:20.
Conflict of Heroes Awakening the Bear, Advanced Squad Leader played live and how awesome it is. Is COH really a mini’s game? Compared to LNL they both seem to have some history more in linkage to ASL than Minis. But in a much more streamlined and richer experience from a theme and narrative sense. Leadership is abstracted in many Tac games. Why?
Command structure in wargames. Guys if you want command and control…There is only one dude to play: TCS. But at the Squad level LNL has some level of leadership, which is nice, but not as detailed. I think the comments on ASL are valid its all about the ToE versus Command and Control. Who wants to roll a dozen times prime a charge..really? Lets be doing steps. Game play versus ‘mechanics’ is the challenge.
Drinks sure! They talk about cocktails.
Tonkin, Note that Gesine is running some good video of this right now, take a look! Jason gives us a good view into the game. A highly immersive experience by the sounds of it.
Panzer Digest…..oh boy.
Chariots of Fire, some solid discussion here.
