So ever since Heinze has been listening to the Serial podcast, he has been interested in a game called A Distant Plain. I had never heard of it, nor did I know of the existence of the COIN series by GMT Games. The COIN series are games that focus on guerrilla warfare and counterinsurgencies around the world. These games can be based on historical or ongoing events. Most of these games are hard to get your hands on: either you’ll have to pay a lot of money or you’ll have to be very very patient. You can buy A Distant Plain on e-bay for $195 or you’ll have to place an order the website of GTM Games. They’ll print new copies of the game once 500 people have signed up for a reprint.
The idea of this comic was based on a Reddit discussion that asked the following question: ‘If you could give a copy of a single game to everyone in the world, which game would you choose?‘ We found that an intriguing question and would like to ask you to answer the same question.
