WWI is, to me, one of the most fascinating times in human history. The results of that war still influence culture, war, and politics to this very day, a century later. If you'd like to see what life
Battlefront is heading back to WWI (a personal area of interest for me from my history grad student days) with Great War. The new version will be hitting store shelves in March, but they've gone ahead
We just passed the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI. It was, I consider, the true foundation of the rest of the 20th century. In honor of the end of the war, Battlefront is having a sale for the re
We've got lots of games out there about WWII and subsequently, there's also a good number of Weird-War-II stuff. What I'd love to see more of is WWI games, and then, Weird-War-I stuff. *looks at Inter
Do you want to help shape the look of a miniatures game? All of us certainly have our thoughts on what figures in a game should look like, and this is your chance to influence that. Green Miniatures i
I studied WWI a lot back when I was getting my degree. I find that conflict fascinating, and it really was the foundation for everything that happened in the 20th Century. I'm often saddened about how
During the midst of the Great War, the skies opened up and the heavens rained down. But this wasn't the enemy's shells. This was vehicles from another planet. The Martians are invading and both sides
Ares Games, making of Wings of Glory, is looking to inject a little H.G. Welles into their game. They have announced that they are going to launch a Kickstarter campaign for Tripods and Triplanes. It
It's Friday! Gateway to the weekend.I'm... just kinda chilling. Yeah... just chilling. Not gonna really go anywhere. Not really gonna do anything special. Just... chill. I think it's a good idea to do
We're already halfway through the week. Having Monday off certainly helps with that. But as we continue our way through the week, I know I could still use a bit of a pick-me-up. So I'm going to nosh o
You know, it really is amazing how fast airplane technology advanced during its early year. I mean, the Wright Brothers had barely gotten their flier off the ground, it seems, and then you've got aeri
In my opinion, WWI is really what set the foundation for the rest of the 20th century. I wish it was as prevalent in popular culture as WWII is. So every time I see a new game come out based on WWI, i
Hey kids. We have made it. It's Friday at last. This certainly has been an eventful week. It's also gone by quickly, at least for me. I hope everyone at Adepticon is having a good time. If you're not
Good news, everyone! We have defeated the Martians!The problem is that the world alliance that was able to do so didn't really last, and it looks like all the nations are gearing up for what will sure
Back when I was working on my History Master's degree (I'll go back and finish it at some point... ... ...), I had a lot of interest in WWI. It really was, in my view, the first "modern war" and certa
We've once more made it to the weekend.Well, almost to the weekend, anyway. We've still gotta finish today. But hopefully that won't be too painful to get through. Then... Yeah, I just love weekends.
Ares Games will be in Indy in a week for Gen Con. Hopefully, you will be, too (I will be). If you're a fan of their games, you'll want to stop by their booth. Heck, even if you're not a fan of their c
One of the most interesting periods in history, to me, is WWI. It basically set the stage for the world we have today. And one of the most important battles of that war was the Battle of Jutland when
World War I is mostly known for the trench warfare along the Western Front, but it also included fighting between Russia and Japan. This was basically a second-act to the Russo-Japanese War of 1904 (s
Aaaanchors aweigh, my boy! Aaaanchors aweigh!Or, one you probably know more of the words to:In the Navy you can sail the seven seas!Either way, I hope I've got some song stuck in your head. Also to be
While WWII might get the majority of documentaries, movies, and games (video games, tabletop games, and other such), I always preferred learning about WWI. If I weren't doing TGN right now, I'd be fin
Well, after the fake-out that was on yesterday (a cruel trick by Wednesday in making me feel that the day after would be Friday, when it obviously wasn't), we have made it to the real Friday. It's goi
We keep chugging along, beautiful TGN readers. The week rolls by and we continue on as well. It's that time once more to bring you some bite-sized stories we've come across in the past few days.In thi
