10 Must-Follow Twitter Accounts for War Gamers



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.
