It's OTTWeekender Time! On this week's show, Gerry tempts John into the Franco-Prussian War with an epic game that mixes tabletop skirmish and real-time strategy together to produce a system that constantly asks questions about your tactics on the tabletop. Could this be the system needed to get John to start and break Gerry's resolve to stay away from yet another period?


What do you make of the idea of a constantly shifting game on the tabletop, is it something that you think may grab you and pull you into a new period or game? The concept has certainly fired John's imagination, let us know your thoughts below.
