POLL DESCRIPTION

Whirlwind wonders:

The designer of a popular set of wargames rules has made certain remarks which others have thought to cast doubt on his understanding and balanced judgement of the period in which his game is set.

And further discussed here.

Inspired by, but not limited to, the above thread, have the comments of a rules writer on the history of a period outside of the actual rulebook dissuaded you from playing or continuing to play the writer's game?

I know, for example, that sometimes people have strongly disagreed with the 'takes' of Scott Bowden, Sam Mustafa, and Phil Barker on certain periods of history.

Poll set up by Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian, based on this pre-poll discussion.
