Mentioned in Dispatches, S3E6 – On Target Simulations & Flashpoint Campaigns

The guys from On Target Simulations join us to talk about when the new Flashpoint Campaigns: Southern Storm gets released, their collaborations with the UK Ministry of Defence, the balance of realism and enjoyability in their games, and the OODA loop and how it affects what you can accomplish.OTS

And we poke fun at the Maple Leafs.

So thanks to Jim, Rob, and Jeff for taking time to hang out with us and riff on some wargaming.

Mentioned in Dispatches, S3E5 – Moe’s Game Table

This week we’re joined by Moe of the sneakily-named “Moe’s Game Table” for a chat about how he got started and some of the things you can find on his site.  We also discuss properly scaling minis wargames, taping bayonets to gun tubes, and load-bearing walls made of unopened wargames, among plenty of other gaming tidbits.MiD-Moe

Thanks to Moe for sneaking us in before hockey season started, and check out his excellent YouTube channel and go talk to him on Twitter.

Mentioned in Dispatches, S3E4 – Tabletoply Simulatin’

Mentioned in Dispatches, S3E4 – Tabletoply Simulatin’

For over half the year now, we’ve been running our Saturday Night Fights on (get this….) Saturday nights.  A few hours of gaming and camaraderie, and you can watch it online if you’re not able to play.

Our man Cyrano is the ringmaster of the Saturday night wargaming circus, and we’re joined this week by some of the regular SNF participants – Vance, and Mike/OJsDad (another podcast debut!).  We talk about the origins of the SNF, as well as a few of the technical details of getting up and running with the Tabletop Simulator, and the breadth of games available for the system.

Stop by on Saturday evenings, and check out what the guys are playing. And if you’re interested in joining, check out the part of our forums where we organize the games.

Mentioned in Dispatches, S3E3 – The Conventioneers

Another podcast rookie!  David from The Wargaming Company joins Brant & Gary/Ardwulf to discuss their recent convention-going, and their upcoming adventures.

Obviously, we talk about Origins, given how much time Brant & Gary spend there, but we also cover Winterfest, Historicon, Adepticon, MACE, Cold Wars, CompassCon, and more.  We also chat about the OCS and La Battaile series, the Empire minis rules, BattleTech, and others.

And the WWII Pacific minis game that Gary & Brant are talking about during the show?  Here are some pictures from Origins this past summer.

Mentioned in Dispatches, S3E2 – I Know What You Played Last Summer

Our next season charges ever onward, with a look back at the games we played over the summer, and some travels over the past few months.

We talk about the minis rules for Rommel / Blücher, what Napoleonic games get wrong about terrain, and Thirty Years War games on Tabletop Simulator, among plenty of others.

Mentioned in Dispatches, S3E1 – The Last Word on Africa

In response to our summer special, Cyrano and Barthheart had some thoughts they wanted to ask as counterpoints to our earlier discussion.  So here is what we expect to be our last discussion of the wargaming world, post-Scramble-for-Africa.  Don’t worry, we also discuss Root, Custer’s Revenge, Postal, Thurn & Taxis, and plenty of others, along with historical battlefields, camouflage pants, conscientious objectors, and greeting cards.  Seriously.  We’re like a veritable bingo card of tangential topics.


Repeated from this summer, for background reading if you need it.

As always, thanks for listening 🙂
