Battle Cry - For me, this is the most enjoyable adaptation of the Command & Colors system. I see it as a system that benefits from a straight-forward approach - not much chrome - and to be fair, I have more interest in the US Civil War than in most conflicts.

La Citta - It took me a while to try this game, but it quickly became a favorite once I did. The problem of not having enough citizens to build the buildings you need to attract more citizens - or at least avoid losing citizens - is a fascinating one.

Troia - I really enjoy archaeology as a game theme, and this game really gives the feel of digging through to find history. I've long found it a great game; just wish I could find more folks who feel likewise...

One dollar at the flea. Well, this really is just a parts copy. It was sitting forsaken at the flea, it's box top gone, the board gone, and about half the pieces missing. Still, for a dollar there's enough there to replace the missing one or two bits in the copy I already have. Well worth it.

Absolute best experience of the con. Played on Ricahrd's big felt map with pewter minis. The game was an overlord format 4-4 simulation of the battle of peach tree creek. I was the commander, and we had 14 of 15 flags collected when the other side captured three flags in a turn to win in through a combination of great rolling and a daring/foolhardy charge to the finish. So much fun, and really memorable.

Preparing an epic Omdurman 1898 scenario with 250+ miniatures.



British and Egyptian units are represented by traditional battalion and brigade formations... including the Camel Corps!

Mahdist units are grouped into color-coded "factions" according to their tribal allegiance... Black Flag, Green Flag, al-Sharif, etc. This system worked well in my Adowa 1896 scenario and should be a good fit with the command structure used by the Khalifa.

While the Anglo-Egyptian army begins the session in defensive positions behind the zariba there is plenty of opportunity for maneuver later in the battle.

Yesterday, I stopped off at a Goodwill on my lunch break and happened upon a copy of Battle Cry (pictured version). I didn't have enough time to cut through the layers of packing tape in order to inventory, so I went ahead and paid the $2 and headed back to work.

I inventoried it last night, and thankfully it's complete! One union infantry soldier had the tip of his rifle broken off, but it was otherwise in very good condition. Of course, the box suffered some mild damage while trying to remove the contributions of the store's tape monkey! shake

Since next week (June 25th) will mark the 140th anniversary of the battle I decided to play my Epic Little Bighorn Scenario:



Cavalry units are company strength. Tribal units represent groups of fighting men from different factions or warrior societies. There are rules for leaders, counting coup, the pack train carrying extra ammunition, volley fire, fleeing tribal noncombatants, and much more.

Here is a full image of the board:



This scenario might look familiar to a few Geeks... it was played at the Dice Tower 2015 convention.

A lavishly illustrated Session Report will be posted on BGG in a few days.

Like most wives, mine won't play wargames with me, but as an avid Civil War nut, she will try anything that's about the battle between the states. She wants to buy wargames that even I don't want any part of.
This is a game she really enjoys and... sigh... she's never lost a game of this either. Do you see a pattern here?

Preparing an epic Königgrätz 1866 scenario to commemorate the 150th anniversary.

A fascinating battle. This was a transitional period of military history. The belligerents were armed with different types of weapons and had each army had a different tactical doctrine. The commanders provide a mix of interesting characters; their blunders and triumphs are a good fit with the Commands & Colors system. There is a variety of terrain including entrenchments... but both sides have an opportunity to react aggressively as the narrative of the battle develops. There was also a major cavalry clash.

Should be around 200 miniatures deployed on the combined BattleLore: Epic BattleLore maps. I wanted to use brigades but there wasn't enough room. The units represent divisions for the Prussians (and Saxons) while the Austrians are -- unfortunately -- lumped together in formations depicting two brigades.

A lavishly illustrated Session Report will be posted on BGG.

150 years ago today...

The bloodiest battle ever fought in South America took place on the marshy plain of Tuyuti in southwest Paraguay. The Paraguayans launched a surprise attack in three columns against the invading Allied armies of Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay.

When the attack began, the Allied center began to be pushed back. However, artillery commander Col. Emilio Mallet (seen below) had ordered the construction of a large moat in front of his forward line. When the Paraguayan onslaught reached it, they were halted in grapeshot range.

In the real battle, both sides took enormous casualties, but the Paraguayans had taken the worst of it. Their army was destroyed. The battle is sometimes referred to Latin America's "Waterloo."

In the simulation shown here, however, the Brazillians were the ones who advanced, while the red-uniformed Paraguayans wisely stayed at the edge of the jungle and picked off the advancing Brazillians one by one. Viva la Paraguay!
