5 Tips to Turn OFF a Potential Wargamer

It isn’t easy to run a good demo game, participation game, or event at a gaming convention. This episode shares 5 tips to AVOID…unless you want to turn off a would be wargamer. Just kidding!

When listening to this episode keep in mind the tips to turn off a would be wargamer are presented facetiously. Use this episode as things to avoid.

Listener Andrew and prior guest Aaron Bostian are both skilled at growing the hobby. Inspired by their hard work we’re taking a turn to share advice on ways to grow the hobby in your area.

Mailbag
Prior guests Dean Emmerson and Aaron Bostian found out about this show topic through our Facebook page. They shared their thoughts about the game.

  1. “I had a copy for sale at Huzzah and someone snapped it up. I tried to order a second copy but the distributor was out!”-Dean Emmerson
  2. Aaron asked his FLGS to order him a copy.

We had an outpouring of feedback in response to Episode 113: Are Painted Minis Essential to Miniature Wargaming? People very enthusiastically said painted minis ARE essential. Here are a few of the comments:

  • “Even if you only basecoat your figures, I always maintain that they look far better than bare metal/plastic.”-Shaun
  • “Definitely paint them (no matter how slowly).”-Philip
  • Of not painting minis”…Its like buying a train set and only laying out the track on the living room carpet!”-Richard

Product Information
Publisher Stock #
WR115
File Size:
11.32 MB
Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
