Our second season of Mentioned in Dispatches continues with Jim & Michael talk about what’s on order, what we’ve pre-ordered, what we’ve pre-ordered and don’t ever expect to see (cough*UPFRONT*cough). We bring up Sails of Glory and Tabletop Simulator and Guderian’s Blitzkrieg and BayonetGames’ Warfighter series and Tank on Tank and plenty of others

And Jim wants to know how many rules systems do you know well enough to just pull off the shelf and play right away, anyway?

Our second season of Mentioned in Dispatches continues with Chris & Mike celebrating Mirthday as we talk about pre-orders and Kickstarters, Origins, games people wouldn’t expect on our shelves, and booze.  Yes, Mirth was, uh, well…  sloshed.  I mean, let’s not sugar-coat it. He was well-lubricated, and somehow still managed to hold a conversation about wargames.

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”?

Enjoy this last episode of Season 1 while we take a break for the holidays, and we’ll see you again next year.

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.
