Having discussed a wargame that they didn't much like last week, this week the Adventuring Party discusses one that they very much DO like. The Great War is Richard Borg's latest game in the Command & Colours series, this time based during... well, the title kind of gives it away.

Show notes:

  • 0.59: “Great” meaning large or immense (we use it in the pejorative sense)
  • 1.20: You rarely hear a strong accent from Oisin, but his pronunciation of the word “but” there was more Dublin than Dubliner Cheese.
  • 2.02: The Reaper mini kickstarter – for people who actually needed TOO MANY minis: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1513061270/reaper-miniatures-bones-an-evolution-of-gaming-min/description
  • 4.12: I feel I now have enough information to make a reasonable guess as to who this is.
  • 5.23: AW YEAH, HEX GRID
  • 20.55: Is he the evil midnight bomber what bombs at midnight?
  • 22.52: Said in the tone that a disapproving parent might say “with their Yu-Gi-Ohs and their Pokemans”
  • 23.02: Quote of the Episode: “Surprisingly few battles, I find from personal experience, are improved by the inclusion of a Giant Spider in the third act”
  • 27.35: But surely the slight difference in their epaulettes would be a CLEAR indicator!
  • 32.41: MEDICORE! https://youtu.be/BX-FMvt83fA?t=53s
