One More Thing… A Slight Name Change

miniTALK

 

Those with a keen eye for detail, might have noticed the slight name change for the above podcast. Even though its a minor change, I thought it would be appropriate to go into further detail as to why it was ultimately made.

First off, I felt that calling the show a miniature wargame podcast was only half true. Throughout the recording process I felt myself getting constantly pulled towards games that included miniatures, but were not necessarily wargame related. This was really apparent, as I began to take a deeper look into games like: Kaosball, Guildball and the Batman miniature game. Although these games have a strong non-wargame themes to them. I felt they blurred the line between traditional skirmish wargames and board games. While I was looking at the Batman miniatures game, it became really apparent how limiting the standard definition of miniature wargame actually became. 

So instead of limiting myself to one small sub genre, it made much more sense to expand the categorization to include any game that contains miniatures. This will allow for the opportunity to also look at board games that have a strong miniature component to them as well. Ultimately, the medium of miniature gaming is a stronger mental framework. Resulting in making it easier to jump around and make comparisons across the entire miniature gaming industry. 

So while it might appear to be a small change, it is going to have a profound effect on the future direction of MiniTalk. Basically if the game has miniatures, I am going to talk about it.

Nice and simple :)
