Avalon Hill alludes slyly to more wargames in future

And lo, a cute reference to a Seekrit Projekt in this interview about RoboRally (PDF) has raised anew the spectre of “Avalon Hill” now standing for “WotC Board Games,” rather than the completely proud, never ever silly, always grognardy and entirely luck-free (yeah, right) legacy of the AH backlist. All that’s really in the article are said allusions, plus a reminder that Nexus Ops is coming and will likely be the gamer-est new game that the new AH has made to date. Vegas Showdown sounds reasonably solid too, in a more European way. In the meantime, why not simply recognize that AH is now an alternate WotC logo, accept that the “real” Avalon Hill died with the wargame hobby and by its own financial hand, and move on to helping produce new culture you like, instead of pining for the fjords?
