In our fifth episode, we talk to Rene Charbonneau, president of what may be Canada's oldest wargaming club in Vancouver, BC, the Trumpeter Tabletop Gaming Society. We talk about what makes a club a success: planning, a code of conduct, outreach to the community and hospitality to young people. Trumpeter's big convention, Salute, sounds like a fine excuse for a trip to gorgeous Vancouver in the spring.
In our second segment, the Canadian Content Corner, we talk about the Dieppe Raid, what we think it was about, and what it was actually about. Mike reports on what he learned watching WW2TV on YouTube and listening to Canadian historian David O'Keefe.
Next, Mike and James ask the question, what makes for a good set of wargames rules and that leads to a good old natter.
Finally we take about what's on the paint bench, and James talks about how his Bavarian sharpshooters, Scharf's Schutzen, are a thinly veiled homage to a well-known series of books and films about some fellows in green.
