Hi All

I've just bought this game having played lighter war games such as CCN, CCA, Hold the Line and Fredrick's War and see that it looks like a notch or two up on complexity. I've read bad reviews about the rule book layout but understand that GMT produced a clear version.

Having gone onto GMTs website my computer can't open the GMT document versions.

Has anyone got an ordinary PdF version of these rules that I could open using Microsoft packages?

Thank you in advance that can provide a link to a copy.

All the best
Dave

You should be able to right click this link and save the pdf to your desktop:

It appears to be a normal pdf to me, so apologies if I am not actually helping.

Hi Gents

I don't seem to be able to open FoxitPhantomPDF. Anyone know how this can be done.

Cheers
Dave

The game is certainly worth it. Both PG1 and PG2 deserve better scores really.

The system is an advanced adaptation to the old Quad games of SPI.

Watch out for the Cavalry rules: cavalry easely breaks in this game and follow the step by step sequence of play narrowly.

It has been a few years since I played it, but I should pull it out soon again. A decade goes soooo fast these days .

Have fun.

Hi Benny

I received PG1 from Italy the other week and have PG2 coming in from the USA. I haven't read the rules yet but look forward to getting started soon.

My current level of game play is GMTs C&C Napoleonics and Worthington's Hold the Line/ Frederick's War. From the look of them these games are a more complex and detailed version of horse and musket warfare. In your opinion are they much harder to learn and master than the GMT/ Worthington games?

All the best
Dave

Dave,

I may be prejudiced, but having played a lot of C&C Ancients (can't speak to C&C Napoleonics), I'd rate PG and PG II only 1 notch more complex than the C&C system. This is a light-moderate war game, certainly not beyond moderate.

Excellent news, Bob. I want something in between easy and difficult and so, this sounds about right for me. I must start to read up on the rules but its been a busy time with a number of new games and expansions coming out since Christmas.

Cheers

Dave
