Brant and Rocky are joined by special guest Sebastian Bae to talk about how the hobby wargaming world has approached contemporary / near-future conflicts with China and in the modern PTO.
Don’t forget, you can always catch up with past episodes on the “podcast” tab of our site.
Whether you’re flipping the map on its head, or trying to project near-future weapons capabilities, it’s a unique set of challenges. How might political shakeups change the “start condition” of the conflict? What role is played by strategic logistics? How would you put a multi-player model in place without relegating some players to being tag-along siblings? What assumptions are you bringing to your design, and maybe shouldn’t?
We’ve got some links for you!

Preview of a new wall map in work. Adapting a perspective I have used before but going for high-resolution, large-format, and a lot more detail. Struggling to find the right colors and balance for topography, population density, and lots of labels. pic.twitter.com/Orz7Nkohd8
