I wrote a longish article on the design process for Combat Patrol(TM): World War II. It was originally serialized and posted on The War-games Website. After the six-month exclusive period expired, the articles have been reposed on Cigarbox Battles. The first three parts of this four-part article are posted now. Please give them a read and let me know what you think. I have always found reading about how other serious designers go about their design process. If you haven’t heard of Combat Patrol(TM), see the rules’ Web site here.
Part 4 will be published in February.
While you are at the Cigar Box Battles site, this is a fun article.
