Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

I see no reason to want major changes to a game that works very well and which rewards careful and skilful play. I find the balance of luck and skill to be about right. I know that when I play someone competent, like Pantherboy, Youngr or Klayeckles, they will tend to run rings round me. Their play ...

Re: Early Middle Ages: winners post your results here . . .

Division B ahuyton - Breton 411-579 AD won against Ulysisgrunt - Indian 546-599 AD, 53-28 My troops pathetically cowered in a big wood in the centre of the field while Danny's elephants, lancers and bowmen surged forward bravely. My ambushes and numbers won the game but credit is due to my pleasant ...

Re: Early Middle Ages: winners post your results here . . .

Division B

Morbio - Lombard 493-567 AD beat ahuyton - Breton 411-579 AD, 51-23

I think Morbio may have forgotten to report his glorious win of a couple of weeks ago, a tale of lancers and warbands cutting up poor Breton peasants

Re: Biblical: winners post your results here . . .

Division A

ahuyton (Phokian 550-461 BC) beat paulmcneil (Syracusan 550-461 BC) 60-43

A hard fought hoplite clash which was very tight until the last couple of turns when my armoured troops broke through the enemy line. Friendly game.

Re: Early Middle Ages: winners post your results here . . .

Division B ahuyton (Breton 411-579 AD) beat gamercb (Frank 496-599 AD) 45-17 After several disappointments with my Bretons, I finally managed a win in this friendly game. Credit to my opponent for playing aggressively even after losing the cavalry battle on one flank and faced with my Breton foot ru...

Division A

ahuyton (Phokian 550-461BC) beat rbodleyscott (Cypriot 549-490 BC) 57-5

A bit of luck to start with plus a nice open playing field for my hoplites was the story of our game, along with terrible dice for RBS on nearly all of his morale checks.

Division B

ahuyton (Bretons 411-579AD) beat ggarynorman (Byzantine 551-578 AD) 60-45

Very close game, the decider being just some rallied units at my side in the last couple of turns. A win for the Byzantine cavalry and Breton infantry in an interesting match-up.

Re: Early Middle Ages: winners post your results here . . .

I should point out that the terrain was very difficult, woods and steep hills blocking the flanks and a deep stream across the middle. I had hoped to infiltrate the woods with my medium foot and get an advantage but it was effectively countered and was clearly too slow. We agreed on a draw to preven...

Re: 2018 Tournament

My last two games finished, one against SB, who won (9-1 I think) and PB, who also won (8-2 I think), but it is up to them to report their triumphs with accuracy.

Re: 2018 Tournament

My games with TGM are concluded

TGM won with his Russians against my Coassacks, 49-23 so 8 points to 2
I won with Teutons against his German peasants, 44-11, so 9 points to 1

Two violent but friendly games, as ever.

Re: War for Europe and the Near East Campaign

It was fun, Gavin and thanks for running it in such a pleasant and lively way. I admit that I did not take too much notice of the victory conditions, which was probably obvious, but enjoyed the games and I think that makes for a good campaign. It is not a lot of fun if your campaign goes badly and t...

Re: 2018 tournament ending thoughts about the next

The Ming in Crisis looks interesting as a team game with the many different armies. If the Pro Ming Team each had a different pro Ming Army and the Anti Ming Team all had a different Anti Ming army and each player played one game against all the opponents armies. The Japanese options could maybe be...

Thanks, Andre, interesting match-ups.

I posted the three challenges, pw is indicated in the challenge comment line

I could not find the Russian army specified so used the Russian army closest in date to the designated Coaasack army.

Re: War for Europe and the Near East Campaign

Alan, my apologies, I didn't realise we both tried to claim Algeria. I have set up the battle as we might as well play it out and maybe we will get it finished before the next move is due. I've stuck to the rules as far as pot luck armies, version3, and medium size, but have gone for agricultural a...
