This ReCast features Alex and Jonathan sharing why this is a best of episode for them. On behalf of all of us we hope that all of you have a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
Don’t worry! We’ll be back with NEW episodes of Wargaming Recon in 2017.
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 JackSarge said of Episode 198: Gaming Year in Review “Don’t worry Alex I have some old medicine bottles in service as “painting handles” too.”
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.
- 5 star review titled “Top Notch” from landencelano of the Grunt Work Podcast” Really impressed with the quality of the content and how enjoyable it was even being semi-unfamiliar with the topic. Unique perspective. Can’t wait to consume all there is to listen to. ”
