A set of excellent links from C. Lee. First, and this is amazing, it's The Lords of Midnight: on the legacy of a truly epic wargame. This is quite interesting: Common Problems When Translating Games into Japanese. This is fascinating: Aethelflaed: The warrior queen who broke the glass ceiling. I had no idea: Eating Like an Astronaut Means Kimchi for Koreans and Lasagna for Italians.
