Here the truceless armies yet / Trample, rolled in blood and sweat; / They kill and kill and never die; / And I think that each is I. // None will part us, none undo / The knot that makes one flesh of two, /
Sick with hatred, sick with pain, / Strangling -- When shall we be slain? // When shall I be dead and rid / Of the wrong my father did? / How long, how long, till spade and hearse / Puts to sleep my mother's curse?
Looking to play the current published RAW (all errata; no expansions; no update kit stuff, unless it's shipped by then ... -- I wouldn't count on it).
Would prefer three players.
I'm flexible on the rules set, but remember the update kit is perfectly playable on line using Vassal or Cyberboard, but the physical components don't have updated cards or maps (for the update kit) making that problematic.
I'm willing to play for the duration of the convention.
I’ve played Liberty or Death, so I get the gist of the COIN system. Just need a dedicated group of gamers who are willing to devote an entire afternoon to this one. This con seems like the perfect place to get this played.
A veteran of two HeavyCons and the Paris Wargame Con, this is my first jaunt to SD HistCon. Preferring history games with strong elements of politics and negotiation, my favorite titles include 1714: Case of the Catalans, Maria, and Revolution: The Dutch Revolt.
I do not own RoR and have not played it. My most similar experience was likely the 2007 version of Founding Fathers, designed by Rick Heli. (I'm also intrigued by his newer title, Athens: The Birth of Politics.)
I do not own this title and have not played it. I did play Churchill a few times and, finding the military aspect too abstract, did not care for it. The rave commentary about Pericles: The Peloponnesian Wars suggests that it improves that element.
