Why I don't like minis

Beautiful addition or fiddly disaster?

I know it seems pretty irrelevant in the larger scheme of things, but I just don't enjoy playing games with minis as much as with blocks or cardboard counters. Something about minis makes the game feel cheap to me, and makes it harder to get immersed in the game.

Rulebook Styles

There's been a lot of discussion about what makes a good rulebook. Some folks like a rulebook that reads like good prose and teaches a game in a conversational manner. These rulebooks tend to have chunky paragraphs and the presentation of rules often follows the sequence of play. Other people like rules written in a case style: short, declarative sentences. Terrible prose. But really easy to find a rule later on.

San Diego History Con Online Nov 2021

This weekend I went to my first virtual wargame convention.sdhist

San Diego History Con moved their convention online last time due to covid concerns, and decided to do the same this fall. I'm so glad they did.

I live in Calgary. We have a great general game convention here, but there's not a lot for wargamers. And given how spread out cities are on the prairies, driving elsewhere isn't much of an option. Even driving to the US is out- the nearest state is Montana. We have more people in my city than Montana in its borders. So the wargame convention scene for me is pretty bald. When SDHistCon went online last year and I read some writeups of all the cool things that happened, I really hoped they'd not abandon the online format.
