Conflicts of Interest Magazine


Our premiere issue features illuminating conversation between designers Joseph Kelly and Cole Wehrle on the design of Molly House, a bold game on a part of history too long ignored. Harold Buchanan considers the renaissance we’re experiencing in historical boardgaming, while the scholarly Riccardo Masini explains the medieval roots of modern simulation games. Professional wargamer Sally Davis discusses the Derby House Principles and the women who have fought on the battlefield of discrimination and triumphed. Veteran wargamer Edgar Milik ponders the ‘levy mechanic’ in games from the last 30 years, while designer Mark Greenwald introduces us to the new designers building upon Volko Ruhnke’s Levy & Campaign system.
