My latest guest post over at the Castalia House blog was published today (clicky for linky). It’s not often you see a fourth-generation wargame, and this one was published long before I had ever heard of the concept of 4th generation war. Well worth finding and playing a few games of Crisis:2000.
As of this moment, Amazon has a copy of the magazine that contained this game in stock.
It turns out (hat tip to Karl Gallagher, author of the highly recommended novel Torchship, for this information) that an updated version is available. Crisis: 2020, was released in 2007 and from the pictures shown on Board Game Geek, looks a lot prettier than my old copy. At this point, it’s not clear to me if this was anything other than a cosmetic upgrade. More on this story as it develops.
Of course, we’re talking about updates to story about a nine year old update to a twenty-two year old game, don’t expect much.
