As I note in the show's audio intro, Mark and I realized after-the-fact that for a short portion of the show we were talking about our tactics while looking at a map of the gameboard, and therefore it is a little difficult for the listener (who does not have the map) to know what we are talking about. As a fix, we posted an annotated photo of the game board to the Gameopolis Flickr Page (entitled Show 02_5 pic 04), to help guide the listener through our discussion. Thanks for listening! -Jeff

Show #2: Warrior Knights and Legions of Steel

We start this show off opening up a dusty old game box...we're not going to tell you what it is...listen to the show.

After that, in Mark's segment, Mark covers the original (1985) release of Warrior Knights, a medieval combat/political.  He covers all of the main game mechanics and strategies.

Then we zip forward in time to the distant ( or not-so-distant) future, for Jeff's segment on Legions of Steel, an out-of-print Sci-Fi tactical combat game.  We've put up a few pictures on the Gameopolis Flickr Page, so check them out!
