  1. What is the Adler Boardgame Cafe?

Via our Youtube page:

  1. Listener Ancient Thoughts commented about episode 132 on Youtube saying “Josho’s completely right with what he’s saying with how Ancient History magazines going to be different and understands the whole purpose of studying history is to recreate the past. The artwork is a huge factor aswell as the info and how its delivered because it gives an historically accurate picture and brings the ancient world to life. This new magazine would be extremely popular, same with their podcasts if more people just new about it.”
  2. Listener IDidSawABear commented about episode 132 on Youtube saying “If you give me a way to buy this in Canada, I will buy the crap out of each edition!”
  3. Listener David commented about episode 132 on our Facebook page saying “All around an enjoyable and informative discussion — of particular interest is this proposed new book of art work from Ancient Warfare Magazine. Given the quality of the illustrations that have graced the pages of AW from the very start, this new book should sell very well indeed.”
  4. The Hobby Desk Podcast
    Listener Josh has started his wargaming podcast. It is named The Hobby Desk. I’m proud to announce that it is the newest member of the Troll in the Corner Podcast Network.

    iTunes/Stitcher Reviews

    • Jamie Searle from Norway left a 5 star review on iTunes titled A Great Wargames Podcast saying “I’m really enjoying this show. I’ve listened to about 50 episodes now and found all of them to have real value. The range of topics is refreshing and the quality of production and guests really makes it a good listen. Wargaming Recon is mostly focused on historical miniature wargames, but enough different games and tangental topics are covered that it’s always interesting.”
    • RobertD left a 4 star review on Stitcher Radio titled Historical Wargaming saying “Every episode has some great content related to wargaming in New England. It could be talking about a Convention with one of the directors, holiday buying ideas, or even just doing a mailbag episode.”
