Feature: Oh I miss it so

Have You Played… Crokinole?

I only had one chance to play Crokinole before we entered the end times, but it's still one of the things I miss most about the real world. It's a board game that requires a very special, very expensive board, as well as several bags of a magical, edible substance known as gliss. It's about sliding counters into a hole, which turns out to be…

Modder Superior – Tabletop Simulator in 2019

Almost five and a half years ago, I made my RPS debut looking at what creative modders for Tabletop Simulator were doing. While frequently of grey legality (the majority of items on the Steam Workshop are still unofficial digital reproductions of expensive physical games), the platform is still thriving. Official adaptations of games for Berserk's virtual play-space are now sold more readily, but few take…

From the tone of Altfuture's last announcement you'd think unconventional, timetable-shunning train sim Derail Valley had run over the last northern hairy-nosed wombat or trumped during an audience with the Queen. Jan 18's “very bad” news turned out to be news of a piffling seven-day release delay. The rescheduled ribbon-cutting should happen today. Expect some thoughts on the sim's 200km…

The Flare Path: Make Mine a Martini-Henry

One hundred and forty years ago today, colonial loose cannon Henry Bartle Frere singlehandedly started the Anglo-Zulu War. By the time London got wind of what was happening, the invasion of Zululand was well underway. Frere, the High Commissioner for Southern Africa, hoped that a quick victory would bring his dream of a British administered confederation of South African states a step closer. He hadn't…
