I'm in for Legacy but this can be played before or after the Risk Legacy game.

I've always wanted to get this to the table but have never found anyone interested.

It's not an easy game to teach because the rules are very situational. In other words there is no reason to teach how to use a battering ram if your not planning on using one.

The rules are straight forward but it's very abstract and very sand box like. Each player has their own rule book for their side. The rules cover what you can do as a defender/attacker. They are well written and reference easily.

Anyone else showing up? Looks like I'm the odd man out. I've got a hankering for some Combat Commander...so I'm hoping Gary shows up. This thread on scenario H has me itching to play that one.

Otherwise, what pair is willing to play a three-player game? Some ideas for that:
Runewars - I still want to get this to the table at SNEW
Cuba Libre - or some other COIN game
High Frontier - if someone can teach

Hmmm...maybe I should rope one of the boys into a Combat Commander game with me...

I didn't think I was going to be able to make SNEW this month, but it looks like I can.

I see Nick is not paired up.

Some possibilities

Washington's War

Guilford

Twilight Struggle

Since Gary wasn't there with Risk Legacy we ended the night with a 4 player race. Race game published by wargame company is SNEW legit on a technicality.
