AGC 125 March 16th 2010 (State of the Hobby) (1:05:14)

With Mark Kinney and Mags. Carol is still sick. Mags' plans for her AD&D2 Greyhawk game for the RPG Buffet. Mark's adventure at ConCave, and a quick look at one of Mark's gaming purchases, Legends of Wrestling. Mark also got a new tech toy (finally). The state of the hobby: where we've been, where we are, and how we got there (from our perspective, of course). A look at a couple of forum discussions (Red Box and the Players episode).

'Acquire' was designed by the late (great)AMERICAN designer Sid Sackson. It was not a German game.

Mark Kinney said...

Okay, very true.

The Wikipedia article I referred to, though, does mention the game as typical of the German style.

And historical miniatures is really quite healthy. Have a look at for the main convention in the US...
