The Long View: The Long View - Quick Looks #26

Play

In this episode of Quick Looks from The Long View, Elhannan Lloyd Keller and I investigate two new titles. First up is The Fog of War by Geoff Engelstein and published by Stronghold Games. Is this a truly new take on the wargame genre? Is the game more strategic or tactical? Will it be compelling for wargamers and eurogamers? Listen to hear our thoughts.

Next up is the classic Amun-Re, recently reprinted by Tasty Minstrel Games. Is this a game that is worthy of a beautiful reprint? Does it play well at all player counts? Does an older design like this hold up compared to more current games? We attempt to answer these questions and more in this episode.

The Long View is a podcast designed to take a closer, more critical look at the games we play. Each episode will focus on a single game. The game will be one that the podcasters will have played many, many times.
