Well, after some delay due to the holiday period, the next show is here, and hopefully it has been worth waiting for.

The main feature of this show are the ‘Nuts’ rules from Two Hour Wargames. Not only do I review the rules themselves, but also the brand new Campaign Book ‘Pieper at the Gates’, which was released just before Christmas.

I also discuss a few bits of news,and chat about playing Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game and Duel in the Dark:Baby Blitz

I hope you enjoy the show!

    I listened to your podcast for the first ime today. Keep up the great work.

    I was one of the play testers for Baby Bliz (BB) and Early Nights (EN), “David Flatray”. I am glad you liked the play of BB. Advice for the Germans is to hit with Grief as early as possible along with never stick your assets in the same old cities. The flight paths between cities are valid positions too! Fot the Brit player, a short run to the coast will bring quick points but…God never likes a coward (strike deep) and be darn sure to use those Mossies for clearing the path.

    As for EN, don’t fear. It plays rather well. With the Brit losing his Mossie and losing points at the target it will force you to work a little harder but with the unpredictable flight path you gain some advantage back. The German does lose some assets but [if Friedemann listened] with the Brit getting a shorter flight time he can not fly as deep to hit those big money targets. He also doesn’t get as much on the target (see why the lower city values?)

    Again, great show and I will now be listening/reading previous episodes to catch up on what I have been missing since your launch!

    Dave 🙂

  2. Hi Neil,

    I’m also a new listener with Episode 43. Your tastes mirror mine – straddling both the board and miniature gaming worlds. Really enjoy your podcast and will be a regular downloader from now on. Keep up the great work!
    Cheers,
