The oy of hex
May is Gamma World month at Grognardia! Comment of the day:
Here's a bit of GW map trivia. The rulebook notes that "the scale of a hex is roughly 43.7 kilometers (27.3 miles) from side to side." I once asked Jim Ward why such a ridiculous, useless scale was chosen, and he said "that was Tom Wham's idea of a joke."
Tom Wham's web page was updated pretty recently...Can't remember if I've blogged about him (probably), but his games include the delightful File 13, a game about...game designing.
