Chat online with the game design legend himself, Dan Verssen!

Matrix Games and Dan Verssen Games (www.dvg.com) are excited to announce that they will be hosting a live chat event with none other than game design legend Dan Verssen on Thursday, November 15th at 9 PM EST. Now fans of both Dan Verssenís board games and PC games will have a chance to fire away at him and ask a wide range of questions. The chat will be hosted at the Matrix Games Live Chat area on the Matrix Games website.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said ďItís always nice to have fans and designers meet up online to discuss a variety of different topics. With the recent release of Hornet Leader PC, Iím sure there will be no shortage of things to talk about!Ē

 

Dan Verssen of Dan Verssen Games added ďIím excited to hear what the communities from both the board and PC game side of things have to say. I hope fans of Hornet Leader PC can get exposed to my board game design work and vice versa for my tabletop fans.Ē

 

This live chat event comes in fast and furious right on the ď6 oíclockĒ of Dan Verssenís latest release, Hornet Leader PC, which has captivated both fans of the original Hornet Leader board game and tactical air combat fans alike. To further feed the excitement surrounding Hornet Leader PC, Matrix Games has also released a playable demo for Hornet pilots who have yet to take to the skies.

 

In Hornet Leader PC, players can command a squadron of the U.S. Navyís elite F/A-18 Hornet Strike Fighters! You select the pilots and arm the aircraft based on real-world mission briefings. Once you reach your objective, you evaluate threats, and do what needs to be done to destroy the target!


Each pilot has his own set of unique skills and abilities. With each mission, a pilotís skills increase, but so does his fatigue level. You must decide how hard to push your men as one of the many decisions that go into every mission.

 

Get more information on Hornet Leader PC from its official Matrix Games webpage and more information on Dan Verssenís great line of tabletop products from his official website. And be sure to head over the Matrix Games Live Chat area on Thursday, November 15th at 9 PM EST!

To End All Wars gets its first expansion!

Wednesday, January 28, 2015

So long as the opposing forces are at the outset approximately equal in numbers and moral and there are no flanks to turn, a long struggle for supremacy is inevitable” (General Sir Douglas Haig - British commander)

Praised for its historical accuracy and its capacity to properly cover a huge conflict that involved thousands of men and units, Ageod’s WW1 wargame, To End All Wars, amazed history buffs last summer. However, the huge scale of the Grand Campaign was demanding a lot of time and a deep involvement from the players.
