That's a Palm Pilot on the left, and a pink iPod mini on the right. Yes, I've been doing BGTG that long!
Mark Johnson's irregular podcast about small wargames
Another month into the exploration of the Korean War in wargames, movies, and books. This time I've got an interview with the designer of the definitive game on the topic, Joe Balkoski. As you know, Joe is famous for designing a lot of games, especially the Fleet series and Great Campaigns of the American Civil War. He got his professional start during SPI's glory days, and has since moved on to become a professional military historian and author. Along the way, he designed The Korean War, published by Victory Games. These days he runs the Maryland Museum of Military History in Baltimore.
Joe has been interviewed on a wargame podcast before, episode 22 of David Dockter's Guns, Dice, Butter. It's an excellent interview that touches many topics that I don't get to in my interview with Joe, so I encourage you to listen to both.
I haven't managed to play TOO many games or watch many movies about the Korean War in February, thanks in part to a 2-week vacation in the middle of the month. But I've done some, and the episode wraps up with my descriptions of them.
Remember to follow along & chime in on my geeklist/discussion) for all of my Korean War explorations. If you're a wargamer on social media, follow me on Twitter (@WargamesToGo). Feedback is always welcome.
