How to Update Original Pike and Shot Base Game

Post by Najanaja » Mon Dec 25, 2017 11:05 pm

Decided to dust off P&S.

I have the original base game (no Tercio to Salvo).

Can I update to the current Pike and Shot Campaigns or equivalent?

Thanks

using either the inbuilt auto game updater or the members area one, it will get updated to the latest version for what you own, but will only unlock what items you have bought, eg the base model.

If you don't already have the Campaigns version I believe you can use your license key for the original P&S to get a discount on P&S Campaigns on the Slitherine website (Vpaulus beat me to it :D).

The MP scene is a bit more active on the P&S Campaigns side of things. But I still play matches in the Original Pike & Shot game too.

If you upgrade to the Campaigns version all the Tercio to Salvo battle scenarios and armies are included in addition to the latest version of the game and you also get the titular map based campaigns! The French Wars of Religion scenarios in particular have nice interactions between cavalry types (Reiters and Gendarmes) and I also found some of the Tercio to Salvo battles a bit easier to puzzle through then the base game ones. The massed charge of the Polish Winged Hussars at Kircholm is also great fun!
