Three Moves Ahead Podcast – Wargaming Highlight Reel

tma-wargamingBeen wanting to do this for a while, but the latest episode of the Three Moves Ahead (3MA, TMA) podcast, featuring SSG’s Korsun Pocket in their Winter of Wargaming season really nudged me into compiling a simple list of all the Wargaming related 3MA episodes, so far. They are now hosted on the Idle Thumbs Network.

This isn’t an exhaustive list, and I may have missed one or two mentions of certain wargames, but it is a list of pointers for wargamers to drink in the fascinating conversation over at Three Moves Ahead.
