I've designed a simple wargame for 1 player covering the Reconquest of Spain from the 8th to 15th centuries (La Reconquista).

If you are interested in playtesting it (or just playing it), the files can be downloaded from the competition thread here: [WIP] Reconquista [2014 solitaire pnp contest] [CONTEST READY]

Here is the map set up for turn 1 (most of Spain is Moslem, apart from the small nascent Asturian/Narbonne rebels in the North)



Closeup of some of the counters (not my art, but some Spanish monks 1000 years ago):

Re: Reconquista - solitaire wargame for 2014 p&p solo contest - available for playtest

I am pleased to announce that RECONQUISTA is now CONTEST READY!

Here's a picture from my latest game where I got a Christian victory - it show the situation at the end of turn 14. Lisbon changed hands about 5 times in this game! I was helped considerably by rolling extra income in the random events fairly often, and I also got crusaders. On the other hand, the Moslems got quite a lot of North African reinforcements - including the maximum 6 on one occasion, in which I was lucky as they expended themselves putting down rebellions.

Thanks, there already is an app, but it is just the map and counters, so you don't need to print out the game to play.

It also looks like it will get picked up for publishing as a physical boardgame too.

I dunno, the El Cid counter doesn't look anything like Charlton Heston

It looks quite cool, actually.
