The Magazine Game Pocket Review Project


Mini reviews of magazine wargames
Compiled by Elias Nordling


The Magazine Game Pocket Review Project is a topic on the Consimworld Discussion Board where I have been collecting pocket reviews of wargames from magazines like Strategy & Tactics and Against the Odds. This site serves as an archive to that discussion, making the pocket reviews easier to digest.
The inspiration for MGPRP was Danny Holte's collection of reviews, polled from the Consim-L mail list, which I found to be a very useful resource when looking for old games. The original idea was to take off where Danny Holte's site ended, from S&T #180 and Command #41, but after a while, the posters on Consimworld spontaneously posted their pocket reviews of older games too, so these have been included on this site. Danny Holte then kindly sent his web material to me for merging with this website, so this page now completely replicates all the material on Danny Holte's site.

The magazines are organized in groups of ten. Any general comments about the entire group are listed first, with specific game comments below sorted by issue number & name.

If you have any comments or would like to add some commentary, please feel free to mail me at elias(at)nordling.nu, or join Consimworld and post your reviews in The Magazine Game Pocket Review topic under Magazine Publishers.
