    A good issue of MWBG indeed. You really should persuade Henry to publish some of your Portable Wargame rules to show that it IS possible to avoid the sort of brain-numbing, unreadable complexity/confusion described by Martin Stephenson.

    I acquired a damaged copy of FoGR but soon despaired of ever being able to read it, let alone play a game with it!


  2. Arthur1815,

    You are right … I ought to approach Henry Hyde about publishing an article (or two?) about my Portable Wargame rules. With Christmas coming up, I might have the time to put something together.

    I read Martin Stephenson's article with interest, and agree with his basic premise that complex logic produces complex rules. By keeping things as simple as possible you have to accept compromises … but better a compromise than something that is so complex that you need to have a legal degree to understand it!

    FoGR sounds quite awful … but it sells! A triumph of 'look' over content perhaps?

    All the best,

    I recieved my digital copy a few days ago but I haven't had a chance to look at it yet aside from a quick 'flick' through the pages. Looks like another great issue, I'll make some time to sit and read it tonight.

  4. Lee Hadley,

    I thoroughly enjoyed this issue and I am very pleased that I bought a subscription.

    All the best,
