  1. You mentioned the possibility of a panel discussion featuring wargame developers. Great idea! Love to hear it.

    • Would you be willing to be on it? 🙂

      • Thanks, Bruce…and I’d be honored to participate if I were a developer. But so far I’m “just” a designer with one soon-to-be published game under my belt. I’ve tried to do as much solo development as I could, but I’m a believer that at some point a game needs to go to a separate person for final development.

  2. Great episode as usual Bruce, tons of links to checkout! Really excited to learn about Mark’s FitL expansion “Fall of Saigon”. Perhaps you can entice him to address it on Wild Weasel #12.

  3. Enjoyed this episode! Yes, please do a panel episode (I also asked for this on the 3ma forum.)

    I had the pleasure of seeing Dunkirk in 70mm IMAX this weekend; you didn’t like it!? I realize the ‘marketing support’ comment was a joke but the science center that played it did a great job parlaying it into other WW2 displays and education (and an educational display about the film format.) I think it is a good opportunity for games as well.

    Also, I know it’s a joke on your part, but there’s no repurchasing angle with legacy games. They exceed the average number of plays, so it’s the glut of non-legacy board games releasing each year that get played once or twice that is driving sales.

    As a person in his mid-30s I enjoyed the interview with the young wargamer. I’m interested to see the topic of ‘gateways’ into wargaming approached from books as well as euros; my theory is that while board games may introduce a player to wargames quickly, the player will have trouble getting past pseudo-wargames like Twilight Struggle, whereas if a player approaches from an interest in military history, poly-sci, economic or intelligence simulations, etc., they will start with the meatier stuff and drive additional demand for games without much euro influence, which is healthy for the hobby.
