Our first season of Mentioned in Dispatches comes to a close with a discussion of The Cold War, and wargaming.  What are the ‘boundaries’? Why the sudden resurgence in interest?  What’s the difference between Cold-War-goes-hot-in-the-80s and “modern” warfare?  What are some of our favorite Cold War wargames?  And how ironic is it that a bunch of web-trolls spilled pixels arguing over the definition of a “rules lawyer”?

DRAGOONS4

For the seventh episode of our new podcast, Mentioned in Dispatches we tackle some of wargaming’s most pressing questions:

  • Was the designer of the KV-2 on drugs, or just too much vodka?
  • How big does a game have to get before it’s unplayable?
  • and most importantly – Why do we give a rip about Napoleonic wargames?

Chuckle along with the cast of a Fellini film as we dig into these existential wargaming questions, and give us your own thoughts in our forums or down below.

DRAGOONS4

For the sixth episode of our new podcast, we officially christen the show with our new name, Mentioned in Dispatches. This week, we welcome Dr James Sterrett of the US Army Command and General Staff College, on official business to discuss the curriculum at Ft Leavenworth that trains the US Army’s FA 57’s – the Simulations Operations Officers – as a part of their career development.

We discuss the career path of the typical FA 57, the game design courses at CGSC, the integration with the MMAS program there, and the general approaches to teaching professional game design to military students.

We’re talking a lot about the Age of Gunpowder on this one – how many Blenheim games there are, logistical lessons from Marlborough, and oozing Austrians. There’s also a considerable discussion of Kreigsspiel in its various permutations.
