Re: SnuggleBunny's Pike and Shot, Field of Glory II, and Sengoku Jidai Channel

To help me improve at Pike & Shot and Sengoku Jidai, find that I have enrolled at OUS (Online University of SnuggleBunny). Watching a match on YouTube, then setting up a hot seat game using the same forces, is a good way to get to grips with some of the more elusive aspects of the gameplay. I suspec...

Re: SnuggleBunny's Pike and Shot, Field of Glory II, and Sengoku Jidai Channel

This is very welcome news Jack; I have long been a cheerleader for Richard Yorke’s sterling efforts to promote the multiplayer aspect of these excellent, underated games via YouTube. I have found your insightful comments following my numerous losses to you to be most helpful; to have a player of you...

Re: Round 2 Challenges

It would appear that the honour falls to me to challenge the Team Usagi champion – the fearsome SnuggleBunnies.

[Thank you Brian, I wonder if the rugby term “hospital pass” finds any resonance with this multi-national group.]

Re: 2020 team event Round One

GentlemanRanker (Uesugi) beat TheGrayMouser (Tokugawa) 55-62 The Uesgui samurai established an early lead, sweeping away Tokugawa units facing their right flank (this is going to be easy!), only to throw it all away due to the propensity of pursuing units to present their backs to the Tokugawa battl...

Re: 2020 team event Round One

GentlemanRanker (Uesugi) beat Eobrian2 (Oda) 43-18 The two armies, arrayed in deep formation, clashed on a narrow front between areas of woodland. The superior Oda troops were generally able to prevail in the centre, but space to break through was initially limited. Uesugi ashigaru hidden in the woo...

Re: 2020 team event Round One

GentlemanRanker (Uesugi) beat ahuyton (Toyotomi) 44-18 The Uesugi were gifted a large hill on the right wing, so the Toyotomi thrust favoured their right wing. However, on that side the Uesugi were anchored in broken woodland, bristling with ashigaru , with yari samurai free to operate unhindered in...

GentlemanRanker (Uesugi) beat fybyyn (Oda) 51-21 I struggle to provide a coherent narrative for this game; the Oda crashed frontally into the Uesugi deployment, and things descended rapidly into a bar brawl gone to ground, with everyone lashing out at, or trying to bite, anything that came into rang...

Re: Quick tournament

GentlemanRanker (American) beat ahuyton (German) 5VP : 4VP. An interesting, and well balanced scenario; the Americans grabbed an early VP lead, the German armour, used aggressively, then dictated the pace of much of the game, but the American infantry dug in, and managed to maintain their vital VP s...

Re: Quick tournament

Having become a huge fan Pike & Shot and Sengoku Jidai, I picked up both Battle Academy games in the recent Christmas sale. I have greatly enjoyed working my way through the scenarios, and the opportunity to play WW2 MP games. Thank you for organising this tournament, I hope it will indeed revitalis...

Re: 2020 team event call for players

After a lean Winter season, this lowly Ashigaru will be scouring the rust from his jingasa, shaking the cockroaches from his rain cape, and sharpening his yari, in the hope of being able to campaign under Tokugawa Snugglebunnies or Hojo Fikabo.

Is it possible to remove oneself from a full tournament which is in the 'Waiting to Start' state?

When logged on to the Tournaments page, if spaces are available for a forthcoming tournament, one of the panels displays a ‘Join’ label. If this is clicked, a script is run adding the player to the list, the label changes to ‘Leave’, and the number of available places is decremented. If the ‘Leave’ ...

Re: The Ming and their enemies - Round One

Brian, my expectation was that the teams would stay the same, but the factions would change, i.e. I would choose a pro-Ming army for Round 2, and you would select from the anti-Ming armies. However, I have no deep feelings about the matter either way, and am happy to go with the consensus. Despite t...

The Joeson initiated a powerful cavalry envelopment to their right, this was unexpectedly slowed up by a weak Rebel forlorn hope situated in a large marsh on the flank. The Rebels scrambled to reinforce their left flank, and were a...
