Yarkshire Gamer Podcast - Episode 22 - Simon Miller, The Big Red Bat


We are back on our Big Game quest today with my guest Simon Miller. 


Simon is probably best known for his two rule sets To the Strongest, which covers the Ancient and Medieval Periods along with For King and Parliament for the English Civil War, however he is also a proponent of the Big Game player and has put on some spectacular huge games at various shows throughout the UK over the years.

I talk to Simon about his own gaming in the first part of the show including the popular Venn Diagram of Wargaming. We then have a great Big Game chat, talking about those epic battles Simon has recreated over the years.

Its then onto the show favourites, The Yarkshire Gamer Quiz in which Simon a born and bred Londoner does extremely well before he adds the latest Wargaming Horror to Wargames Room 101.

We end the show with our Big Topic chatting about Simons Rules, how he got into rule writing and his philosophy around the games he has published and the ones he plans to publish in the future too.

All in all another fun episode to put together, I hope you enjoy it.

Coming up next month will be another of my Catch Up episodes when I talk to some of my previous guests and try and find out what they have been up to since we last spoke. April is a 5 week month so look out for a second episode which I have lined up for after Easter.

The last episode with Gerry Elliott is now available on the Utubes 

Until then, Sithee
