Re: Been away too long

Hello AC It’s not because it’s too hard to do a Civil War game… It could be done easily enough – BUT – It would have to be a bit too farfetched to fit into the A&A economic system. Individual battles is always interesting to do games about - Gettysburg is one that certainly comes to mind. Now a Napo...

Re: Been away too long

:wink: Gunpowder. Card driven games? I certainly think there are many good ways to use cards. My D-Day was certainly a card driven (or guiding) system. I think the use of cards that dictate what you can do and can’t do during a turn can have its share of problems, however. If not often, than certain...

Re: Been away too long

Flashman, Indeed had the battle of Gettysburg been lost by the North it may well have been a Confederate War win. Capture a certain number of cities in the North and a Southern Victory is had. I find this kind of victory condition somewhat anti-climatic. It does, however, offer some opportunities fo...

Re: Been away too long

Aaaa ... Hi Chacmool (Michael)… Sorry for the name confusion… I should have been more attentive. I understand what you mean by “the whole conflict was very unbalanced” But there is no way I could bring myself, by way of the game rules, to suggest that one side had better-skilled soldiers than the ot...

Re: Been away too long

Hi Ernst Thanks so much for you wishes for the new year. Back at you my man! Especially the “lucky” part. I’m so happy to read your comments about 1914. I love this game for so many reason. This game had a slow start and interest level, but its becoming more and more appreciated by many. I love the ...

Re: Been away too long

Flashman Brilliant! Very cool idea. With a better understanding of your idea the less jarring a converted veteran seems to be. The rationale I put in my head is that these old worriers become wise old statesmen. You are right about limiting the accumulation of too many overpowering veterans. You sti...

Re: Leader Pieces

It's all very subjective. All of them work, but which one works best with the other pieces? #3 is indeed interesting.

Re: Been away too long

I know this will sound like a cliché but I have not had time to get to my gym for quite a while. Your approach and use of Vets is very clever… I was not expecting that! I’m assuming that by “Vet” you mean military veteran. Such a system would require a rather heavy and specific dedicated game mechan...
