Just watched the latest Little Wars TV game report. Vietnam, Sept. 15, 1967 riverine battle.

Fantastic! One of their best works, if not the.

YouTube link

The information laying out the background of the battle, forces involved, reasons for engagement, show the extensive research done by the GM and others. They then transition that information onto the table top, walk through the engagement with aid of maps, great figures and eye popping terrain. What a great river!

I even like the sound track, but was reminded of this clip from Family Guy:

Also, Tricky Dick wasn't around in '67. See if I can get a copy my older sisters LBJ button for ya.

I agree it was very good especially the terrain.

Tricky Dick was vice president 54-62, and elected president in '68, so I think one could claim he was 'around' in '67.

Thanks for the link, I enjoyed it.

Fantastic stuff -- agree with Chimpy on the terrain

Tricky dick was VP from 53-61. He ran for governor of CA in 1962 and was soundly defeated. Outside of conservative circles he mostly disappeared until his presidential run in 1968. He was twice a loser so he intentionally removed himself from the national stage to plan the 1968 run and avoid anything that would damage that run. He was around yes but nobody was thinking of him in 1967. Didn't start his 68 run until 68. Wish it was still like that. I had a poli sci professor obsessed with Nixon and Watergate so I had to memorize most of the details of his political career.

Hi smithsco,
I grew up in MA and believe me ….. no one was nearly as "tricky" as the Kennedy clan political machine. Not even close.

That having been said, Yes. Little Wars did a great job on the Mekong Delta game.

I think it's the most entertaining wargame video I've ever seen – brilliant!

I enjoy their AARs, but this one was my favorite so far.

I thought this was a great video with lots of background to the scenario and a stunning layout as well.

I have a bit of 1/285th scale Vietnam models from GHQ and plan to paint some one of these days. This was a truly inspirational video. My hat is off to the folks at Little Wars TV for a great production. I agree, it is one of their best and they have done many very good ones.
