Hope you enjoy the first of two “Best of” 2014 episodes. This one focuses on the board game 1775: Rebellion. Originally released on June 9, 2014 the episode discussed the game, how to play, and why you should want to play it.

This ReCast sheds further light on why I LOVE 1775 and why you should too. In fact I will be playing this today to celebrate my 33rd birthday! If you’re listening to this on Dec 22nd, I hope you’ll send positive birthday thoughts my way.

Don’t worry! We’ll be back with NEW episodes of Wargaming Recon in 2015.

Some games are so good that they grip you from the very beginning. 1775: Rebellion by Academy Games is one such game. If you can’t get it near you why not pick up a copy from our Amazon affiliate link: Buy 1775: Rebellion by Academy Games.
