1) What ruleset do you use in your last game? - A Mere Question of Pluck
2) What armies were confronted? - British and Boer at Talana Hill
3) Did you feel comfortable with the ruleset? - Aim of the game was to get back into playing the rules for Wor Lard. Glad I listened to the suggestion.
4) and... was this the first time you used this ruleset? - No, but the last time was five years ago.
5) How many players were in the game? - Four including myself but I running the game. Two British and one Boer.
6) What went well? - The whole feel of the early 2nd Anglo-Boer war. British units not knowing exactly the Boer are and getting bogged down under Boer rifle fire. The Boers nervous as the mass of British ranks set against them.
7) What could have been improved? - General knowledge of the ruleset by all the players, including myself. I missed out large chunks.

1) What ruleset did you use in your last game? - For King & Parliament
2) What armies were confronted? - Royalists v Parliament
3) Did you feel comfortable with the ruleset? - Yes, although we all learnt a few more bits about them as we went along
4) and... was this the first time you used this ruleset? - Most of the players had played quite a bit of TtS and some FK&P, 2-3 had not played either before
5) How many players were in the game? - about 10, I lost count Embarrassed We played 3 games with 7 or 8 players per day, some couldn't make all three days
6) What went well? - Everything Smiley Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
7) What could have been improved? - Pierre the Shy being able to make it, some of the chit drawing.
         I think the record was failing to activate the first unit of a brigade for 3 turns in a row I don't want to see

As most of you will know I staged the ECW Battle of Cheriton at the New Zealand National Wargames Convention over the first 3 days of Easter using For King & Parliament rules
I am very pleased to say that it seems to have gone very well with all players enjoying the game(s) and lots of positive comments from other players and the public Smiley Smiley Smiley
Personally I had an absolute ball Cheesy

I have a number of people I need to thank

Firstly all the players
Everyone played the games in a great spirit, there was much banter, laughter and applause - some genuine, some ironic Wink
An extra thank you to Mark who provide me with accommodation for 3 nights at short notice when my initial plan fell through
At the end of the first two games I asked "who is playing tomorrow", it was very gratifying to see 4-6 hands promptly shoot up Smiley

Secondly Simon and Andrew
For all the support and assistance they gave me in putting the scenario together
Most importantly for writing such a great set of rules, the period feel and different character of the different units made the games fascinating
The rules played incredibly smoothly with no disputes or bizarre results and were very easily picked up by the players with no experience
We only occasionally referred to the QRS I had put together and I can only think of 3-4 occasions when the rule book was required to check something
All the mechanisms work really well and generate a really tense exciting game,
    once a unit is badly disordered the draw of each chit can be the difference between a unit surviving or not Nail biting I don't want to see
The victory points are a really clear way of keeping track of how each side was doing, this kept all the players focused on how the different parts of the battle were going
They also generated lots of banter about who was gaining the most victory points for their side  Smiley and also who was losing the most Embarrassed
Unlike many multiplayer games I've played in there was intense interest in the last few activations of the last player to finish their turn



Thirdly various members of this forum
Thanks for convincing me to go with sabot basing, the ability to represent Pike or Shot heavy units by the arrangement of the bases on the sabots was very useful in the heat of battle in the middle of the table
Also being able to field the 15 units of Commanded Shot at Cheriton as Pike and Shot units in future battles will be invaluable
Your continued interest in the project has also helped motivate me

I'll be putting together three battle reports once I have recovered a bit and processed the 100 photos I took

There was a lot of work that went into it but then I enjoyed the work Smiley
Except for soaking hedges in PVA and there were only 300 of them Hypnotized
I actually only used about 280-290 hedges

The enjoyment I got from the three games was well worth the effort involved Smiley
I will definitely be playing the scenario again as it is a fascinating battle  Undecided

I've also had some suggestions from some of the players for other scenarios I should look at

That is a fab photograph of the table - shows off the sheer size and extent of the work you put in. The photo's also great in illustrating how absorbed everyone was in the game.  Thumbs up

Has anyone ever wondered how many missed torpedoes are lying on the sea bottoms throughout the world?  Undecided
