Just a quick post is all I have time for on this sunny Monday.
Lately I have been on a bit of a GMT Games kick, mainly starting with Time of Crisis. It’s not so much the wargames or the COIN games, because I unfortunately wouldn’t get much chance to get those played, so while I look through the window with longing eyes, I don’t pick those up.
Instead, I’ve seen some quick-playing 2-player games that would make perfect lunchtime games with a co-worker, and I’ve snatched them up quickly (ok, as quickly as promising to pay the P500 pre-order price and then patiently waiting for them to be produced and released can be).
I jumped on Fort Sumter: the Succession Crisis because I love learning about the American Civil War and this game hits that sweet spot of 20-45 minutes.
I say all of this as an introduction to the fact that there’s a game that sounds completely totally awesome oh my god I can’t wait to see it, it can’t come soon enough oh why does it have to take so long… (Editor: *SLAP*).
Oh, thank you.
This game is called Flashpoint: South China Sea and it’s not a wargame either.
