Mentioned in Dispatches, S4E2 – The Horse & Musket Series, with a side of Irrational Nostalgia

Doug & Jim join us to talk about Hollandspiele’s Horse & Musket series, on which Doug is the developer.  We talk about researching the orders of battle, why the period is so fascinating, the occasional goofs that designers can make, and how a word processor is a weapon of mass destruction, among other things.

However, we also spend the first 25 minutes or so trying to figure out (1) what the heck is going on with the “Avalon Hill” imprint under its current corporate overlords, and (2) why it bothers us so much.

If you get a chance, please go hit the iTunes page for our podcast and give us a rating – whatever you think is fair!  We need some more reviews before iTunes will start recommending us in their podcast engine, so every rating helps!

Don’t forget, you can always catch up with past episodes on the “podcast” tab of our site.


Thanks for listening!  We’d love to have your feedback either in the comment area below, or in our discussion forum.  You can also find us on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube
