GrogCast Season 5 Episode 14 – Wargames and Battlefields

13 October 2017 ~

Wait, no Mirth!?  Hell, we oughta just cancel the show without our co-host!

What’s that?  You guys want a GrogCast anyway?  OK, fine.  How about Cyrano and panzerde give us the lowdown on their recent travels to battlefields as far afield as Germantown and Leipzig?  How’s that work for you?  Let’s find out about their trips – What did they learn on the ground that changed their perspectives of their games?  How did their gameplay help get them ready for their trips?  What factors on the ground are unappreciated in the games?

What do we talk about?  Pub Battles, John Tiller’s WWI Squad Battles, multiple wargames from Marlboro and the Age of Reason, a couple of different Marengo games, the original Warfighter game, Jena-Auerstadt, some Napoleonic minis game whose terrain Jim hates, what the hell Brant was doing in East Berlin in 1986, and what glorious things printed catalogs are and why more game companies should publish them.

Yes, we’re still shamelessly begging for some ratings on iTunes, in our quest to get enough ratings to show up on their podcast recommendations.

Please forgive the editorializing with the video title; it wasn’t our call, but that’s the only version of video we could find, and once you listen, you’ll get it 🙂
