Steamcon and a heart felt dedication
We had the opportunity to sit down with Geoff Engelstein to talk about his new game The Fog of War, published by Stronghold Games. We are all aware of Geoff’s Space Cadet series and his recent release of The Dragon and Flagon. However, Fog of War is a departure from Geoff’s normal type of game. We ask him why the change and specifically going into the World War II era where there are many games that already exist with this theme. One item about his game that you might want to be sure you understand is that there are no “dudes on the map”. It is a card game where you are trying to bluff your opponent so that you cansunnyday gain control of areas. Supply lines must be considered and various operational phases come into play that can impact outcomes. The game is long, people reporting over 90 minutes of play and this is a two player only game.
Andrew, Martin, Jason and Ben discuss Season 3, and how it has changed their guild.
