A Distant Plain in the WaPo Magazine
January 10, 2014 Leave a comment
In this week’s Washington Post Magazine: an interesting, well-written piece by Jason Albert on A Distant Plain that also touches on other subjects.
I understand there were significant editorial cuts and changes after Jason submitted his story, both for length and content, which accounts for the complete absence of the co-designer’s name…or that there was even a co-designer at all.
Never mind, such is the fate of authors everywhere: to suffer at the hands of tin-eared, flint-brained editors. It’s still a good piece on Volko Ruhnke and his work, and respectful of the hobby – articles on serious manual games that both appear in the mainstream press and go beyond “hey lookit dem egghead weirdos” are rare indeed.
