Review of Next War in Lebanon (magazine version)

An interesting review of Next War in Lebanon  by Mitch Freedman, on the blog “The Boardgaming Way”.

The review is of the version that appeared in Modern War magazine, and Mitch fills in a bit about his reactions to the game, and my reactions to that… version of the game.

I hope he’ll give the original design, Third Lebanon War, a chance.

The Rest of the Story

Back at the end of April the Guardian ran a story written by BGG regular Matt Thrower on political board wargames…

Now, at his personal site, Matt has filled in the bits that his tin-eared editor cut out. Some very interesting commentary from Volko Ruhnke about models in games, players’ access to those models, and the fun n’ learning aspect of living inside the designer’s model, if only for a while.

Properly illustrated with shots of Fire in the Lake, A Distant Plain and Labyrinth too.
