Slingshot 336

Spotlight Article Graphic

"...the idiosyncracies of Slingshot are the idiosyncracies of the membership...". Prufrock explains his satisfaction that Slingshot, the journal of the Society of Ancients, just keeps on chugging. Despite the onslaught of a number of recent trends, "…Slingshot still holds true to its original amateur, collective ideals. Now into its 336th edition, long may that continue!"

Battle for Russia - Game Turn Restrictions Summary

I'm finally getting to play this game, and am looking forward to it. There are a decent amount of "special rules" and restrictions that apply to either the Axis or Soviet player, depending on which turn it is. Rather than flipping back and forth in the rule book, I made a quick & dirty cheat sheet for myself which I have been using, and thought I'd share it. If anyone sees anything that's incorrect, please let me know via email at mark at grognard dot com. (updated 4/11/2020 to include rules for ignoring Rivers - Axis only on Turn 1; both sides on Turn 2)

French "Low Density" Blues in Ici c'est la France!

Ici c'est la France! was designed by Kim Kanger and published by Legion Wargames in 2009. Outstanding game!

When the digital pen becomes as mighty as the sword. GMT Games ‘Labyrinth: The Forever War 2015 – ?’. Board Game Review

"While Labyrinth is clearly a wargame, both it’s card driven design and somewhat abstract approach make it an approachable choice for gamers new to the hobby." Ray Garbee reviews GMT Games' Labyrinth: The Forever War, 2015-?, an update to the Labyrinth series on the struggle between the US and Islamist extremists. Ray finds a very valid, playable update with some interesting twists: "Reading through the event cards, I was reminded in a way, of Moore’s Law."
