Sam Mustafa discusses his game design along with some of his games including Aurelian and his brand new title Rommel.
Sam discusses his game design preferences and philosophy as previously discussed in WR 113. Sam gives a few more points to those wanting to get into this part of the hobby.
Adrian & Jonathan briefly share thoughts on the game they have played and enjoyed.
Rommel is a tabletop game of great battles in the European and Mediterranean theatres of the Second World War. The player takes the role of a general commanding an entire division, or elements of several divisions, or an entire corps or even an army. Units represent companies and battalions. Tens of thousands of men and machines clash for control of miles of territory. Make decisions about the application of air power, engineering, the use of reconnaissance, the commitment of mobile reserves, and many other things.
Sam take the time to talk about its conception and how it fills the gaps between all other WW2 games.
- Listener Tim said of Ep 189: Great Wargaming Survey 2017 with Jasper Oorthuys “I make sure I take the survey every year. It’s important to have your opinions in the mix, as publishers and manufacturers pay attention to the results.”
- Listener Jay also said of the same episode “Started listening to the Ep today. Thanks for the shout out! Wargaming Recon is one of the inspirations for The Veteran Wargamer. Glad you enjoy it.”
A place for listeners to hang out, chat about the hobby and the show. We have seen some great discussions lately. Some members have shared pics of minis they’re painting and taken part in a fun poll where people are voting for their favorite podcast guests so far this year.
We love all our guests. The poll is just for fun. Jasper Oorthuys is coming in 1st so far.
