Interview with Harold Buchanan out now!

2019-06-25-19.42.04

Looks as if I’ve run out of rant and have put myself to sleep.

Remember that Harold Buchanan interviewed me while I was at CSWExpo this year? He managed to edit my gibberish down into something halfway coherent, and now you can listen to it!

The Benno Effect gets a shout-out around 33:35.

Be sure to tune in for the next episode, part 2 of 2. Highlight will undoubtedly be the tale of the history and deployment of the Pantzooka!

Ave hominem vestitum!

Nights Are Falling

At last, copies of Nights of Fire are landing on doorsteps across the planet. People seem to be pleased! Still awaiting my personal copies.

So far, queries have been limited to finding one small misprint on one Konev (card-based AI system) card, and the usual pointing out to people where their question has already been answered – in the rules….

The above image is from Jason Moore (user “repairmanjack” on Boardgamegeek), so you can have a look at a game in progress using the miniatures. He has also written the first BGG review of the game, and it’s nice: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/2247615/out-ire-pan-and-fire-solo-play-first-impressions

By the way guys, for some time there has been a Nights of Fire Facebook group. But for some reason it hasn’t had much traffic. Stop by and make some noise!
