Interesting story re Afghan Game


Recommended Posts


"When not ensconced at HQ in Langley, Ruhnke, 51, designs commercial wargames. He has invited us to his home in Vienna to playtest his most recent, A Distant Plain. Along with Cuba Libre, they’ll be his fourth and fifth published board games, and the latest in his series simulating insurgencies throughout history: Colombia, Afghanistan and Cuba, with Vietnam, Ireland and the Philippines to follow."

From milgames: "Colonel Robert Leonhard wrote superb books. “Fighting by Minutes” (Praeger) is brilliant but nearly impossible to find for an affordable price and “The Art of Maneuver” (Ballantine Books) does a great job of introducing the evolution of effects-based operations throughout history."

The Volko Runkhe games are published in GMT P500 project. I.e., they require approx 500 pre-orders before they start to design. Currently the Vietnam game is about to be released.

If VR wants to do Ireland first and then the Phillipines, it will take at least another two years. Ireland is not even on the pre-order list.
