Last sunday we played the campaign scenario where I, The Union, add to get the Scroll at the middle of the map and do something that I don't recall. But before being able to take the Scroll, you had to complete 2 objectives.

On the Gevaudan map there's 6 objective circles and one of them is used by the Scroll so that leaves 5 objectives to be placed on the map. The Reich had the initiative/setup so he placed his first objective, me second, etc. In the end, The Reich placed 3 objectives and me, The Union, placed 2 objectives.

At the start of the game I managed to get on character to a silver objective but realised I DIDN'T HAD THE PROPER SKILL TO COMPLETE IT!??!?! In fact, no one in my team had the skill!

So it left me with only 1 objective so the game was lost...after 5 minutes...

Did I miss something?!!!?!?

Thanks for your help and insight!

No offense to Tannhauser lovers, but that problem you faced is just a facet of the game's many holes and flaws.

Pro-tip: get Earth Reborn. You won't regret it. thumbsup

Hahah I already own Earth Reborn but it's more complex to master and when we want quick action, Tannhäuser does the job...well except when something like that happens.

OhI can't remember the rules but I do think you can complete does objectives without the skill. It just takes 2 turns instead of one. I have to read the rules again.

Oh? I might have missed that...

BTW I use the Revised rules.

From the revised rules - Page 30 "If the character attempting to accomplish the objective does not have a skill that matches any of the icons on the objective token, that player must roll a die and score 6 or higher to complete either half of the objective. This die roll is required no matter which player placed the objective token. If the player is unsuccessful the action is spent with no progress to accomplishing the objective."

I have Earth Reborn as well as Tannhauser. It scratches a different - more combat oriented - itch.

I also prefer the theme of Tannhauser, they're both great games - Oh and get Claustrophobia while you are at it, the upcoming expansion for it looks great!

Yes I love small unit tactical games, I also have AT-43

Any other suggestions on which games I might like? I've avoided Dust because of the unpainted minis and simple rule set

Regards

John McK

Although discontinued, Heroscape would probably be to your liking.

I have one module for Heroscape already ... "Swarm of the Marro" ... I'm a bit frightened off number of modules available blush - even if discontinued .... after all - so is AT-43

Yeah Tannhäuser theme is really cool.

Concerning Clautrophobia, this game is on my radar as well, might get it in 2011!

You may very well be right, but coming on to a Tannhauser forum to post that is a tad irritating.

Especially given that the problem here is a missed rule.

Really, what's the point in posting this?

If you don't know even the basic rules of a game how can you make a statement about it's playability or value.

How can you reccomend that ER is better, you can't compair the two without knowing how to play both, and you obviously don't know how to play Tannhauser.

Such an amazing game it suffers from sales. whistle

I just got the game 2 days ago, the game is a major cluster-f*** of a game.

playing the game it felt like they were trying to jam pack too much into the game. Like trying to tell the story of lord of the rings in only 1 book.

Shame to, thought it would have been better, some good mechanics but over tedious rules killed it for me.

Not to be dense, but did you mean Tannhauser was a cluster f***, or Earth Reborn, you didn't specify. If you ment ER, I understand your feelings, while I haven't played ER, I did read the rules and that was enough to make me decide against it. Don't get me wrong Tann ain't perfect, but what is.

Earth reborn, sorry for the confusion, I was responding to the guy posting about ER.

I've been playing tannhauser since 2007 and have a mini fan site called tannbunker.

I've been working on a concept for tannpedia over at wikia that will use images, stories, character backgrounds.

Wikia hum, you got a link for it yet.

BTW you can get a copy of my Tannhauser Mythopoeia over on my blog, it has a lot of the Tannhauser background etc, gathered in one place. And it's up to date all the way to Hoss, etc. I just need to start adding the Shogunate stuff.
