It was a day of endless, blazing sunshine, stunning demo games, highly entertaining and engaging participation games, busy traders and friendly and, from what I could see, universally happy showgoers.
I was privileged to be asked to act as one of the judges of the games on the day, alongside Dan Faulconbridge of Wargames Illustrated. It was a testament to the quality of games on offer that this proved to be an extremely difficult task, but I think we made the right choices in the end.
I'll also be posting a host of photos on the blog once I've had a chance to sift through them all, but I wanted to get this podcast out as soon as possible for you to enjoy my interviews with Annie of Bad Squiddo Games and Professor Tony Pollard of the University of Glasgow. Tony not only organises the terrific archeological work going on at Waterloo, but is also planning the greatest wargame ever played (PDF) – and it will be recorded in the Guinness Book of Records as such!
Enjoy the show.
