    Episode 19 – Ethics in Wargaming

    In this episode we join forces with The Veteran Wargamer podcast hosted by Jay Arnold for a round table discussion on the Ethics of Wargaming.  Our guests hail from four different countries each with their own individual views on our hobby.  These guests include Editor in Chief of Wargames Soldiers & Strategy magazine Jasper Oorthuys (The Netherlands),  the owner of Bad Squiddo Games Annie Norman (United Kingdom), founder of Honour Publishing Sam Mustafa (USA) and professor of medieval literature Ilan Mitchell-Smith (California {We all know California is its own country}).  While the intro editing isn’t our best, the conversation was interesting and hopefully thought provoking.  We hope you enjoy.
