Here's the first part of my interview with Joel Billings, founder of SSI and strategy wargame aficionado. We focus on Joel's background in wargaming and video games and then the earliest days of SSI and their battles with Avalon Hill.
You can download the video here.
I'm a huge SSI (and Avalon Hill) computer game collector, so this was great to check out.
I always loved the S.S.I. RPG games series but never really got into wargaming... still, it was interesting to glimpse a window into another side of the companies history.
Love the connections from Strat-O-Matics to wargaming to CRPGS and looking forward to seeing the continuing interviews with Mr. Billings.
