—Ask The Bellhop—

Tonight we’ve got a question from Rob Day who writes:

I have a co-worker who used to play mini wargames when he was a younger man. He’s specifically into historical tanks and looking at getting back to the table. Are there any good strategic board games that might scratch that itch without requiring him to dive fully back into collecting a whole army of miniatures?
