  1. Great episode! Thank you for putting together a quality podcast with news, interviews, and your perspective on gaming. I’d not known much about Jack Greene’s games, but am giving them a look now…

    Was curious about your comment about C&C Napoleonics. I’m not disagreeing with it, but wonder if you’d be willing to elaborate on which Napoleonic-era games you think are the best… (I know, another list request)…

    • Thanks Patrick! regarding Napoleonics, I am not sure there is a good simple tactical Napoleonics game. All I am saying is C&C isn’t it. My feeling is that the system works with ancients because it forces movement upon the players. Movement is what is important in wargames. The effectiveness of Napoleonic ranged combat turns too many C&C: Nap games into a back-and-forth dicefest until one side gets an advantage. That’s not interesting to me, and I don’t think it’s good gaming.

      How complex a Napoleonic game are you willing to play? And what scale?
