Although this podcast will never be about wargames in a substantial way, I still play the occasional wargame and still consider myself a wargamer. Just an infrequent one. :-) Even though I don't play them so often, my interest in military history remains (all history, really). After hearing more about wargames on other podcasts, reading some Consimworld again, and generally experiencing my periodic resurgent interest in wargaming, I figured it was time to talk about them on Boardgames To Go.
This show is sort of a theme show, then . . . a general discussion of my own history with and interest in wargames. My preferences are for the lightest (or shortest, more accurately) wargames that even boardgamers might consider.
