I am easy for sides (ie .. no curiosity about a faction or theory to test at this stage).

So I vote random assignment personally.

PS - Looking forward to this.

Now I'm tempted to dig out Caesar: Conquest of Gaul.

I think I have the Big Guy's The Gallic War too ...

I always vote for the campaign by default.

However .... an argument can be made for a short game to get used to it. I am easy breezy.

Campaign game is fine with me. If we are playing poorly then someone might stumble into a quick win anyway.

I am interested in how does PBF work. If there is a seat still vacant, I would like to join.

Hi Lawrence, I think we're all full unfortunately. But you'd be welcome to hang out and follow along!

I've created the Dropbox folder - you should have gotten an email notice. Shall we roll for sides? How about high roll is Romans, then Arverni, then Aedui, and lowest roll gets the Belgics? Drumroll please . . . .

Jon: 1d20 = (13) = 13
Rex: 1d20 = (7) = 7
Wendell: 1d20 = (8) = 8
Me: 1d20 = (16) = 16

So that results in:

Me: Romans
Jon: Arverni
Wendell: Aedui
Rex: Belgics

Everyone happy?

Yes - I've never played Aedui, so glad to try them.

Yes, sorry Lawrence. As Matt notes were have the full complement of four players.

We just use the PBF to keep track of what is going on. So when someone makes a move or has a question, they post in this thread. The actual mechanism we use to record the session is through the VASSAL module and we exchange files via Dropbox. It all works pretty slick.

So I know we all voted for the 'campaign game' but I just realized that there are THREE versions of the game: a 'short' scenario, the 'main' game, and a 'long' scenario. Which did folks want to do? Main or long?

Wendell - what have you played before?

Long for me.

I assume we will play this as designed the first time through? No options like Sudden Frost?

Printed the rules ... I am not the best tablet reader. Had some trouble finishing via the latter medium. Tactile brute that I am.

I am ready to go now. Well... no viable strategy at this stage, but I have an understanding of the rules.

I think the main and the short. But I'm happy to go with what others want.

The Long scenario adds 10 more cards to the deck and there are some special rules for the first Winter.

I started up a Long scenario. I'm up on the first card, but I decided to wait until everyone has joined in.
