SUMMARY

 

This podcast is singularly composed of an interview with designer Jack Greene. We will discuss his upcoming design, Bear Flag Republic.

Jack Greene is one of my favorite people in the business of designing wargames. Despite delivering lectures to me about the bankruptcy of capitalism, Jack has been a positive influence on me as a roll model for kindness, positive disposition and just being fun to be around. His perspective on the hobby frequently opens my eyes as he talks about matters of power, diversity and career when those discussions don’t come very easily.

Jack graduated from Whitman College Class of ’71 majoring in History. Eleven short years later Jack won a Charles Robert Award for Bismarck 2 as the Best Initial Release of hat year. in 1982 he was inducted into the Charles S. Roberts Hall of Fame for his powerful portfolio of naval conflict simulations.

Jack wrote a number of books on topics around World War 2. His company Quarterdeck Games published Iron Bottom Sound, Destroyer Captain, Norway 1940, as well as other titles.

The next game for Jack will be the much-anticipated Bear Flag Republic published by One Small Step Games. Bear Flag Republic is a card-enhanced game for 2 players based on California in 1846-47 at the time of the Mexican-American War.

SUMMARY

This podcast is singularly composed of an interview with Terry Leeds who the Graphics Director at the San Diego Air & Space Museum, a wargamer, and a gifted wargame component designer. We will tour the museum and talk about Terry’s work.

Terry Leeds followed in his father’s footsteps when he joined the navy. His father flew over 150 combat missions in F-4 Phantoms in Vietnam. After a significant time in the pilots seat, Terry moved into intelligence. He cultivated a love for art and wargames while in the navy for 11 years and the navy reserve for 12 years retiring after 23 total years.

He found a place to exercise his love for art at the San Diego Air & Space Museum, and has worked there for more than 10 years. He is currently the Graphics Director and leads the graphics team on their mission to enhance your experience at the museum. Their work is outstanding with promising plans for the future.

In the 1990s, Terry got involved doing counter and map work for Ed Wimble and Clash of Arms Games. Today he has counter, map or box credit for over 60 games and magazines. His favorite contributions are related to Clash Of Arms La Bataille Series and Battles of the Age of Reason games and of course Liberty or Death. Spending a good bit of time with GMT Games recently, he did work on Liberty or Death, At Any Cost Metz, Fields of Despair and Cataclysm. He is currently working on Mr President, Imperial Struggle and Tank Duel. He also did a breakthrough map for the most excellent game coming in Strategy and Tactics 316, The Campaigns of 1777 by your truly.
