I take a look at the latest card driven wargame, Mr. Madison’s War, from our friends at GMT. This is a title I’ve been looking forward to getting my hands on. The game is designed by Gilbert Collins (based on Mark Herman’s Washington’s War system) and we get to see exactly what you can expect when you open the box. Of course once I uploaded the video to YouTube, I realized I’d spoken out of turn by saying the Treaty of Ghent was signed in Paris thus bringing about the end of War of 1812. It was about an hour later when I remembered the treaty was signed in what’s now Belgium and not France. Doh!

Dust yourself off from an Arab thrashing and set it all up to play again. Quite a few of the SoS releases which followed were a bit of the same formula even though some [...]
For myself Captain America: The Winter Soldier is nearly the prefect Marvel movie we’ve seen to date. Honestly, I liked it more than The Avengers but you have to keep in mind I’m also not the sort of person who walks into the theatre and turns my brain off. Plus, Cap is my favorite Marvel character. I’m not saying The Avengers was mindless by any stretch but a common assumption is fans of comic book movies are among the lowest common denominator of film goers, possibly [...]
