Every week, #TuesdayNewsday brings you the headlines in wargaming and the strategy gaming world >>>
This Week’s Headline:
Connections Online chair Chris Weuve has published his AAR of the conference over on PaxSims (we’ll yell at him for not sharing with us first later). Our wrap-up, including comments from participants, is coming later this week.
The final numbers? 232 total attendees across 32 different events, including panels, workshops, Q&A, actual game events, and a variety of other presentations.
Up next? Lots of games in June at The ACDC!
Newly Released This Week:
- Compass Games started shipping both Napoleon’s Imperium, 1798-1815 and Crusade and Revolution: The Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939 this week. Both take up more space than even Bryan has to work with.
- SJG is selling Munchkin dice bags. Y’know, for the card game.
- Paradox released the new Crusader Kings III: Northern Lords DLC, and you gotta love any game that’s age-gated just to read the specs page. You can also watch the YouTube trailer.
News From The Wargame Industry:
- LNLP has a BIG sale on their Hollow Cell sci-fi game. This one was definitely convention-tested and Bayonet Jr-approved, so grab it while you can.
- Matrix Games is pushing back the release of Combat Mission: Cold War to June, but it’s so they can implement their multiplayer PBEM system.

- S&T doesn’t have a game-edition magazine sale this week! What the ever-lovin’-hell?!
Newly Launched This Week:
