Best Of The Best TV Shows of IMDb Best Of The Best TV Shows. This is an interesting and enjoyable book though some of it is out of date now The first section discusses the various types of wargames ie Operational Monster meaning the size of the game Science Fiction Beer and Pretzels Computer and Realistic The illustrations might be dated but basically an operational game now is going to be similar to what went before The same applies to the other types discussed so this section is as relevant now as it was when the book came outThe second section is the meat of the book and consists of numberous reviews of various wargames covering everything save computer games The reviews not all of them written by Mr Palmer are interesting informative and at times amusing They also have ratings for various aspects complexity realism solitaire playability and such The only drawback here is that most of these games are now out of print You may still find copies ebay is probably a good place to look A few other people have contributed to this section and this is noted at the end of the review Occasionally Mr Palmer will attach comments at the end of someone else s reviewThe final section includes information such as which games rated the best in the various categories I have three of the the best rated for solitaire play and can attest to the fact they do play well solitaire There is also a list of addresses However I would not consider this reliable as I know some of the companies listed no longer existAll in all this is a nice book even if somewhat dated A good one for the serious gamer especially those that are also collectors to add to his bookshelfOne final note My edition gives the author as Nicholas Palmer I have no idea who Karl H Purnell is as he is not even listed as one of the guest reviewers

Contrary to what it says above this book as you can see from the cover is by Nicholas PalmerPublished in 1980 The Best of Wargaming offered cutting edge criticism for its era When Nicholas Nicky Palmer who went on to become a Member of Parliament in the late 90s Diplomacy player extraordinaire and founding editor of Flagship magazine decided to update his Comprehensive Guide to Board Wargaming he opted to provide general surveys of the types of games one could play operational science fiction monster beer and pretzels realistic and computer assisted and a compendium of mini reviews that illustrated his approach Since he didn t feel ualified to review all of these games himself ca 120 games if one counts all the uadrigames for which he does a general summary and separate review he recruited some other respected gamers to supplement his unfamiliarity with some games and biases in others It s a neat juggling act and reminds me in terms of thoroughness of those wonderful paiktographies gameographies that M Evan Brooks once compiled for Computer Gaming WorldObviously this book is primarily worthwhile to old gamers who want to revitalize their interest in earlier games gathering dust or to collectors but it is of tremendous value to me when I assign students to research games published prior to 1978 in my History of Games class I m always looking for new material and this one along with Dunnigan s book and Peter Perla s book is a gemEach mini review begins with basic information on the publisher style of game era simulated number of players and approximate playing time For many gamers this approximate playing time is critical even being aware that there are some of us who stretch easy turns into agonizing dilemmas and artificially extend the length of a game My poor opponent in a World Boardgaming Championship heat of Breakout Normandy must have wished he had brought a book last year Yet Palmer elected to uantify this playing time by a objective means than timing his friends at playing the game His formula is PT U200 p 21 Multiply the number of phases P per turn some games have multiple chances to move any or most of the pieces times the number of turns T times the suare root of the number of units U you may not need to move each unit in every phase but you have to consider the position of each unit in each phase so it adds to the time taken per phase Then you divide the product by 200 I don t know his rationale for dividing by 200 but I m going to assume he came by this by trial and error My only problem here is that my mathematics and his don t always agree and when I apply his formula to the length of games in the review it doesn t come out right though it is closer to my calculations the larger the game so I suspect there is a sliding delta when there are small countersheets Each mini review summarizes the game as to what it is trying to accomplish This is a vital element that I often saw left out of freelance game reviews when I was editor of Computer Gaming World and something I encouraged our regular reviewers to express Without an awareness of what the designer was trying to do in a game a review can degenerate into an opinion piece where the reviewer expresses his or her designeritis what she or he would have done differently rather than what the game offers and how well the game delivers In addition each review talks about innovative elements and style of play before assessing how well the game works For some games the reviewers do make some suggested variant rules or rules fixes and for some games that have languished on my shelves these suggestions are worth the price of the book admittedly much lower than when it was first publishedFinally each review ends with a list of scores on a 100 point scale excitement clarity of the rules complexity % realism R and solitaire suitability S So in this case a game like Dunnigan s Panzer Blitz would be rated 90 70 %50 R35 and S90 since it is a great game but doesn t reflect the exigencies of air power or the dangers of indirect fire later corrected in Panzer Leader that was realistic but less exciting and Arab Israeli Wars that was still realistic raised complexity and was less exciting Respectively these would be measured 80 75 %60 R50 S85 and 65 75 %75 R70 and S80 This is a very useful system and I am thinking about integrating it into the research papers that I reuire each uarterI have given this book a medium number of stars This is only because the material is of limited interest to modern readers It doesn t cover enough in print games to be useful to someone new in the hobby and many of the gray hairs will already know what s in here On the other hand it is of phenomenal usefulness to me and has forced me already to remove some neglected games from my basement shelves and reconsider them If it were a brand new book I d probably give it four stars because such a book can never be as complete as the reader wants and must of necessity leave out a few games that said reader would have considered vital He didn t cover Machiavelli Fight in the Skies Samurai Kingmaker etc Yet I have reduced the rating by one for the modern reader who is probably better off discovering some of the new wargames from GMT Games or MMP Games than trying to make sense of Sniper or A Mighty Fortress even if it were possible to find a copy at a reasonable price on eBay or one of the after market game sellers

Somehow even out of date than his book from three years earlier Nicholas Palmer not Karl Purnell spends some a brief amount of time surveying genres of games before embarking on the obvious reason for the book another 100 page survey of games many of which are not even in circulation in the second hand market On the plus side Palmer has gathered some friends to help review games he hasn t played and he has included a bit structure for the reviews giving us rating scales for fun complexity of rules clarity of rules simulative value and solitaire playability Certainly these are subjective categories especially the fun rating but Palmer gives us the impression usually he is trying to be generous and have others in mind while he rates the games though his preferences clearly taint the ratings he gives Air Assault on Crete a 100 for fun but Panzergruppe Guderian gets an 80 for examples One wonders where are all the American Civil War games are until we get to War Between the States when he finally admits he has never had much of an interest in the ACW this could be explained by his British nationality but as an early self proclaimed avid wargamer one wonders why that would have been a hindrance He thinks monster games are past their prime in 1980 not uite played out in wargaming history and he rarely gives them high scores for fun Terrible Swift Sword gets a 60 War in Europe 65 Wacht Am Rhein 70 Campaign for North Africa 15 Just like in his first book Palmer gives us the clear impression he has never heard of Star Wars he still has no clue concerning the satire in Freedom in the Galaxy Most fantasy games get less than flattering reviews from Palmer and his friends especially concerning their pasted on theme as some would call it but many get decent ratings anyway A replayability rating would possibly have been helpful but it too would have been subjective Even given Palmer s disinterest in the ACW one wonders where are so many games that would have been available in time for this book especially of the SPI uads which Palmer generally seems to dislike except for his favorite game of all time Nordlingen Certainly the useful addresses appendix is worth nothing beyond oh that s where their address was before they disappeared reactions Palmer doesn t like A Mighty Fortress but one suspects he would have loved Here I Stand Because it is from 79 80 none of the modern gamescompanies are present no Victory Games no GMT no MMP et cetera et cetera Still it is uite possible some of his thoughts on many of these games could help give you an idea you really don t need to spend that much money for them on the second hand market after all Maybe the 160 you were going to spend on that old grail coule be better invested on a couple of promising P500s instead Or he may just confirm you do need that old grail after all It s all pretty subjective but sometimes a candid opinion is all you need to help make your decision It may be less helpful of a book than Comprehensive Guide to Wargaming but the survey of books is worth reading at least once for his appraisals no matter how subjective Check it out if you can but don t spend a lot of money tracking it down
