After a month of absences, Bruce Geryk more than makes up for it in a tour de force conversation with special guest Bill Abner as they relive the fun of 1970s baseball simulation games. We open with a discussion of Blood Bowl, which Julian finds too difficult and Troy finds too easy. Then Tom, Julian and Troy sort of fade into the background for an hour. Until Troy learns that someone else has heard of Sher-Co Baseball Simulation.
Listen to learn what kind of person replays historical seasons, why Blood Bowl is really a wargame, and whether sports simulations can ever measure up to the beauty of classic Championship Manager.
Also an update on our Dominions 3 game, a promise to eventually get Bruce’s side of the story, a quiz game from Tom Chick and a hip hop conclusion.
