Mentioned in Dispatches is back! – Tuesday Newsday 2/2/21

Every week, #TuesdayNewsday brings what’s important in wargaming and the strategy gaming world  >>>

DRAGOONS4-Podcast2This Week’s Headline:

Mentioned in Dispatches season 6 is back!  That’s right – we’ve launched our new season, with the premiere featuring Brant, BBMike, and Ian talking about game mods.


Newly Released This Week:

  • War Diary Magazine is being sold through LNLP’s website, and their latest – Bougainville – The Forgotten Campaign – is now available.
  • TRL Games has an update pack available for those that want to use the updated Dogs of War rules with their Less Than 60 Miles games.
  • Modern War Magazine #52 with a game on the struggle in the Congo around the turn of the millennium
  • Legion Wargames is now shipping Prairie Aflame! and still offering the preorder price for it ($42 instead of $58).
  • TS Wargames (over in Poland) has released Starguard Solstice, about the fighting in Pomerania in early 1945.
  • Gamer’s Armory is taking orders for Rally Point #18 for those that are ASL completists.  These scenarios are from the Tampa ASL community, and can be challenging to find.
  • Avalanche Press has an alt-history timeline where World War I ‘sort of’ ended in 1916 and then restarted under different conditions in 1940, as the “Second Great War”.  This is the backstory behind their Second Great War at Sea series, and the current Tropic of Capricorn game that features a bunch of South American naval powers duking it out.

Newly Launched This Week:

  • Compass Games has the preorder up there for Flanks of Gettysburg.  The game zooms in on the battles at Little Round Top and Culp’s Hill.
  • GMT Games has Prime Minister on p500.  Plays 1-4 players (yes, MOWE, there’s a dedicated solo option so you don’t have to hack one together) and puts you into Victorian-era politics.  Steam guns & cogwheels not included.
  • MMP is still taking preorders on their GCACW-series game Hood Strikes North. It’s been out there for a while, but it’s highlighted on their new site so we’re drawing some attention to it for you.
  • MMP are also taking preorders on Third Winter, which is their next OCS game, that looks at operation Ukraine over the Winter of 1943-44.
