1) What ruleset do you use in your last game? - What a Tanker!

Intrigued by this, after finding Gale Force 9's game TANKS wanting, so went looking for a review. Found this. Oh my, the game may play well, but the schoolboy humour? "ring piece"? "impressive bush"?

Not for me, I think.

1) What ruleset do you use in your last game? - Poseidon’s Warriors
2) What armies fleets were confronted? - Romans vs Carthage vs Syracuse
3) Did you feel comfortable with the ruleset? - absolutely
4) and... was this the first time you used this ruleset? - third, third and first
5) How many players were in the game? - three

Rome and Carthage broke on the same turn, leaving the Straights Of Messina clear for the Syracusian fleet to enjoy. The Carthaginians, despite losing 50% of their fleet for no real return, sank the Roman flagship, drown their admiral and desposing of all Roman ships sent to rescue him, meaning both fleets were vunerable to fleeing. The Syracuse fleet stayed safe, away from trouble, only to win by taking both other fleets to over 59% losses.
6) What went well? Surgical strike on the Roman Admiral
7) What could have been improved? The whole Carthaginian playbook!

Last night:

1. Walter Schnaffs

2. French Imperial v. Prussian

3. Very comfortable - many games now played

5. Three - 2 French (including one novice) v. 1 Prussian

6. The game flowed very smoothly, including pre-game and terrain set up - a total of three hours.

7. Surprisingly the Prussians found themselves in defence, with the French delivering the double whammy of charging and ranged fire. The Prussians lost some artillery early on, whilst some was put into reserve and saw little duty. It was a decisive victory for the French, but the Prussians did manage a von Bredow cavalry charge, sweeping away some Turcos.


And today:

1. The Men Who Would Be Kings

2. Upstart Maharaja v. Her Majesty’s brave British lads

3. Comfortable with these

4. Second game

5. Two players

6. As the maharaja’s forces I did remarkably well, sweeping all before me with my cavalry and tribal levies.

7. The maharaja's sepoys were less spectacular, becoming pinned and gradually falling back as they failed to rally. The British had an assortment of not quite top drawer officers - one abandoned his men as they were overwhelmed by tribesmen; one refused to put his artillery in harms way, constantly falling back after only two rounds at the enemy; the third had read too many Boys’ Own adventures, leading his men forward towards advancing cavalry rather than delivering well placed volleys. The entire unit was ridden down for its trouble.

1) What ruleset do you use in your last game? - What a Tanker!
2) What armies were confronted? - 20mm German vs. French, 1940 Pz2 and Pz38t v 2 Renault R35.
3) Did you feel comfortable with the ruleset? - Yes, prepared by watching youtube videos and reading up online.
4) and... was this the first time you used this ruleset? - Yes.
5) How many players were in the game? - two with two watching.

6) What went well? - Command dice mechanic seemed to work well and after you've taken damage it's difficult to do what you want.
7) What could have been improved? Not a lot at this stage as it was the first time for both of us. Tokens are a bit small and light, they are easily knocked off the dashboard.

Panzer 2's are no match for R35's may have been better with 2 Pz38t's but forces were evenly matched points wise. We enjoyed the game and will have another game this Friday.

Hep! Devs Vvlt!; Comnenan Byzantines vs Franks; two players, familiar rules, largely satisfactory, but the manouevre is a bit clumsy by comparison with some of the derivatives. Can't complain about the result, however; I had some absurdly lucky rolls (or the enemy had some desperately poor ones) which allowed me to withstand that deadly crusader first impact.

My opponents never play well. I was unlucky/the rules are unfair/I was off form/I felt sorry for him and let him win....

1. Tin Soldiers in Action

2. SYW Austrian v Prussian

3. Reasonably comfortable at the moment - more play needed to get used to the system

4. This was my fourth game

5. Two players

6. The game played well and the Austrians were beaten, but only after stiff resistance

7. We needed to get the tenacity rule sorted, ie who takes it and at what point in the turn.

1) What ruleset do you use in your last game? - Black Powder
2) What armies were confronted? -                   Russians pursuing French and Confederation Allies
3) Did you feel comfortable with the ruleset? -    Yes, have used them 8 - 10 times previously
4) and... was this the first time you used this ruleset? - No (See above)
5) How many players were in the game? -          Two

The new:
6) What went well? -     The "Warmaster style" command provided an unpredictable pursuit, the French retreating by bounds while leaving delaying forces; the Russians struggling to drive their superior numbers into combat range.
7) What could have been improved? - As ever we probably missed a couple of key points in the rules, but all things considered it was a fascinating game with plenty of decisions for either commander.
