Great Podcast but…..
Great podcast guys. One suggestion though, please, please, please put in the information area for the specific podcast every rule set you talk about and what website to go to to for possible purchase. Time stamps also in the podcast info where the discussion starts would also be nice. Thanks.
I love this podcast
This is my favorite wargaming podcast. I only wish they produced episodes more often- say twice a month. It’s just as rare a treat as the magazine, which is regrettable.
As a new, late in life, war gamer I really love this podcast. They talk about the spirit and background of war gaming. They talk about specific games and products. They talk about what they're up to in gaming and miniature prep. It's like being in the club and listening to the conversation after the game, over a pint. It's wonderful!! Please keep it going for as long as it can!!
