Which faction for Battlelore have you played?

English?

French?

Both?

I personally have only played the French and my wife always plays the English.

Re: English, French or both?
We played the first scenario - the French won - then we changed sides - the French won again.
We decided to play the same scenario again and again until both of us achieved a victory on the English side (which happened in the fourth and fifth session, I think).
So: no preferences for me or my wife so far.

As we *had to* play or test several other games since then (I sometimes translate game rules and components for a German publisher), Battlelore hasn't come on the table since weeks (though my wife and I really love it - btw. my wife was very sceptical at first when she heard that it is kind of a battle simulation).

Well it doesn't matter. But for some reason most of the time I play Standards (which I prefer to call them instead of French or France, don't like French, neither does any European except the French themselves).
If I play a game with the Pennants (or English) i get confused sometimes.
My friend liked Goblins better (in the beginning) and I liked Dwarfs better, so thats an easy choice. Most of the time now we play Call to Arms BL, so it doesn't matter anymore. Mixed camps are brilliant!

well so far my silly answer on a silly (no offense) question.

happy gaming

Neither...

I play Dwarfs...

If the French want to tag along for the ride, that's well and good...

Hey, I'm a European and I like the French.

Only played one game and I more or less forget which side was which given it was one of the later scenarios. The French fought on both sides of the Hundred Years War anyway: it was to a considerable degree a French Civil War...

It's a love/hate relationship.

Prior to CtA, I usually played the English because my buddy doesn't like the Goblins. Now that we're mixing decks in CtA, I get to field some Dwarves too!

Personally, I prefer the look of the pennant banners, so I use them when we play CtA.
