Invasion of the GUWS! – Tuesday Newsday 6 October 2020

Yep, it’s #TuesdayNewsday and here’s what you should care about in wargaming this week  >>>

This Week’s Headline:

The Georgetown University Wargaming Society has teamed up with The Armchair Dragoons in our forums, as we are now the host of the GUWS discussion forums.  Will this lead to a massive influx of wide-eyed wargaming kids in a hurry to learn from the old guys?  Maybe.  More likely, though, is an expansion of the interesting, thoughtful, and (mostly) mature discussions of all manner of strategy gaming.

Oh yeah, and they were our guests this week on Mentioned in Dispatches.


This Week’s Other Headline:
