<t>I'd love to see a modern cowboy-based game where there are just cowboys shooting each other. Just men with guns. No one doing voodoo or dressing up in costumes. No one tossing coins to distract people. No weird stealth scenarios. No Baldur's Gate in the 1860s.<br/> <br/> Sadly, it looks like no o...

<r>Guys.<br/> <br/> It's "UPCOMING BOARD & MINIATURE WARGAMES 2020"<br/> <br/> Then it's "Board Wargames 2020"<br/> <br/> And finally, it's "Miniature Wargames 2020"<br/> <br/> Wargame is one word. Also it's not an adjective.<br/> <br/> <URL url="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wargame">https://en...

Ninety bucks and I get a paper map. I'd rather pay thirty and get a pdf file I can print out myself.

<t>I have no comment regarding the gameplay but for the backstory they're not even trying. The planets name is a random word from the dictionary. Explore the beauty and danger of Planet Coal? It's beautiful...yet deadly. What a surprise! The magical devices are futuristic...but ancient. So we can us...

Pictures from the convention show the crowd to be full of people over 60 yrs. <br/> <br/...

<t>I understand this is a sandbox. I also understand that the war is a setting. But designing a game that uses war as a setting that is set during the actual WW2 timeline and that doesn't include Russia or the US is a gigantic fail, considering this is the Hearts of Iron franchise and not some euro-...

So this series has been out for more than 20 years now and this is the 17th (?) iteration of the game and this review points out behavior that should have been squashed a decade ago at least. Do they start from scratch every time?
