Defling plays 3LW and likes it!

Over at Defense Linguistics, the gaming blog of the worthy Neal Durando, he goes into the structure and mechanics of Third Lebanon War as revealed by his play-through of the first turn or two.

To begin, the above illustrates the general concept of operations for each side.

Interview at The Players Aid blog: Tupamaro

Folio-13Coverback

The ever-alert Grant Kleinheinz, one of the “Faithful Eight” (readers of this blog, that is) asked me some questions about Tupamaro, my game on the Uruguayan urban guerrilla movement that is coming out soon from One Small Step Games (Tupamaro available for pre-order from OSS Games!)

Step over and have a look!

Fresh today, a post to the InsideGMT blog on the procedures to follow in the Propaganda Rounds of the game, and illustrations and explanations of the Pivotal Event cards.

I think I have about reached the limit of what I can describe about this game’s content and mechanisms! Anyway, slip on over and check it out.

In a couple of weeks I will write another post on the Propaganda Round sequence of play, and about the Pivotal Event cards each side has. After that, I don’t think there is much more to describe about this game!

Leaving tomorrow for BottosCon 2016, the annual wargame convention in saturated Surrey. Always a good time, and nice to meet so many people I often meet just once a year at this event.

Items I will be bringing with me for people to paw through and try include: Caudillo, Chile ’73, Colonial Twilight, EOKA, The Little War, and Red Horde 1920. Plus giveaway copies of Guerrilla Checkers and Uprising.
