Graham Longley-Brown, one of the founders and organisers of CONNECTIONS UK and a leading UK professional wargamer, has written a book about how to create and run successful professional wargames. It is entitled SUCCESSFUL PROFESSIONAL WARGAMES: A PRACTITIONER'S HANDBOOK and is being sold in paperback format by John Curry's 'History of Wargaming' project and in Kindle format by Amazon.

Although it is aimed at the professional end of the wargaming spectrum, their is much that will be of interest to hobby wargamers who write and design wargames and who run larger/mega wargames.

A review of the book can be read on my blog here = link

I remember, years ago, meeting the guys who ran the wargames at Fort Hood. They ran an event at a game convention in Austin, Texas. It was a fun game – the rules were simple, the emphasis was on a fast-playing game that kept players overwhelmed and stressed.

Thanks for the review Bob. I'll have to check this one I think.
