Yarkshire Gamer Podcast - Episode 49 Dave Brown - O Pickett de Armee


I'm miles behind on the blog but want to keep it ticking over, so there will be a few Podcast catch up posts over the coming days

After last episodes Paintbrush Geek Out its time to return to the regular format of the show with one of the hobbies premier rule writers.

You can listen to the show on any major Podcast Host or via the link below

Dave Brown broke into the world of wargames rules with his Napoleonic set General de Brigade and since then has developed successful sets of rules in both WW2 and the ACW, with other taking forward the basic system into the AWI, Seven Years War and late 19th Century Europe.

Dave has recently joined forces with the toofatlardies to reinvigorate his earlier rules and we now have another holy trinity of O Group, Pickett's Charge and General de Armee.

We cover all the usual sections and have a good laugh through the quiz and Wargames Room 101.

We have a quick chat about the forthcoming GdeA2 but mostly its me asking him how long it took to think of the name.

Its a long one, over 3 hours so make sure you have a couple of pints of milk in so you can keep the brews coming !

Next episode will be my Golden Jubilee so I will be having special guests Nick Skinner and Rich Clarke on to celebrate their remarkable achievement of getting two rule sets in the final of the recent World Cup of Wargames Rules.

Until then, Sithee
