Back to News Listing Attention Wargamers! This post is for you!

Posted: Tuesday, August 30, 2016 by Daniele Meneghini

Type: News

This is a first (and experimental) post to see if we can spark some positive discussion about topics related to wargames and to help us better understand your views and opinions about stuff we care about. So here you go.

Most of the time, wargames depict conflicts with surgical precision and analytical rigor. Nevertheless, they tend to focus only on the military (or close related) aspects. That’s pretty self-evident, of course, as wargames are about war, after all. But we shall not forget the all conflicts are not a mere confrontation of brute force. Also, the more a conflict is controversial, the more it is difficult to show it exclusively from the military perspective.

Where are the ethics, the politics, the personal relationships, the diplomatic struggles? Do we play war because of the strategic and tactical implications only and can we avoid any form of partisanship when a conflict is touching us closer? How do we look at the Vietnam war, for instance? And the Arab-Israeli conflicts?

Since the main goal for a wargame should be the most realistic representation of a conflict, how should we tackle the most controversial ones? Is the “100% military focus” option the only one available? Or can other ways be attempted? Is there a perfect compromise?

    Wars of Succession soon on Steam

    Wednesday, May 23, 2018

    Released back on January, Ageod's Wars of Succession has been praised by many for its incredible accuracy in recreating two of the major wars of the XVIII century that, for intensity and extension, can be easily considered forerunners of more modern global conflicts
     
    One of these wars was the War of Spanish Succession (1701-1713), pitting the French & Spanish Bourbons monarchs against the Grand Alliance built by Austrian Habsburg, Britain and the United Provinces. 
    The other is the Great Northern War (1700-1721), between Sweden and Russia (and her allies), most of which focused around the succession of Poland. 
     
    Ageod is proud to announce that this gem will be released on Steam very soon!

    Wars of Succession is OUT

    Thursday, January 25, 2018

    I have resolved never to start an unjust war, but never to end a legitimate one except by defeating my enemies. - Charles XII of Sweden

    It is the year 1700 but this new century is not bringing peace to Europe. Two great wars are erupting almost simultaneously, covering the Old World with fire, smoke and steel.
     
    Over Western and southwest Europe, the War of Spanish Succession sees the French - Spanish Bourbons monarchs against the Grand Alliance built by Austrian Habsburgs, Britain and the United Provinces. The stakes are high, as every power involved is willing to conquer a share of the "Empire where the Sun never sets".
