On our next episode of Guns, Dice, Butter, we'll have a panel discussion with Mark Herman, Ed Wimble and Andrew Mulholland regarding strategic level wargames of the American Revolutionary War (ARW). In 2008, Mr.Mulholand wrote an excellent article for ATO vol VI Nr 3 (issue 23: Guerra a Muerte) analyzing these games. We thought it would be productive to discuss the main dynamics of the ARW, how these games model these dynamics and offer some conclusions...and, of course, the call for more titles on the conflict.
In preperation for that episode, we utilized a couple of spreadsheets (building on work Andrew had completed in 2008):
...and here is a related list of the games on BGG (Boardgamegeek.com)
The episode will also contain a discussion with one other friend in wargame tribe and the usual bits and bobs of news and what not. I anticipate posting the episdoe by the end of the month.
