Late August – Early September 2011
The Strategicon gaming convention only a few weeks away. I think I can have a prototype ready by then for my war gaming friends to try. Inspiration to solid, playable form in a couple of weeks. No problem.
Aaaaand, then I wake up.
Hey, really thought I could do it. Every spare moment spent jotting ideas in a notebook. Waking up in the middle of the night with A-HA! moments. Sprinting to start the marathon.
I did manage to get a printed map to the con. Talked a length to my wargame group about my ideas. They seemed somewhat interested or maybe they were just humoring me. Wargamers can be hard to read and they are a highly skeptical bunch. I do know that they will be kind enough to try it should I ever get this to playable form.
One gent in particular will be the litmus test. He HATES world war one games.
