224 9/12/2017 5:50:00 AM 1757 Early Season France Message Let me know when you're ready to play (ideally one week before because I need to read the rules too)

223 9/12/2017 5:29:00 AM 1757 Early Season Britain Message Do you have a preferred side?
Should be a fair fight then..
I suppose we could even set up. But I probably wouldn't play a card for maybe a month!

Obviously need to read up.
222 9/12/2017 5:08:00 AM 1757 Early Season France Message I played Poursuit of Glory only one time when the game has been published.... why not
221 9/12/2017 4:27:00 AM 1757 Early Season Britain Message Yes paths of glory or even pursuit of glory have you tried that one?
220 9/12/2017 4:21:00 AM 1757 Early Season Britain Message I was wondering about that dot-dot-dot

Well my arm is not that strong either. You paragraph but it's just a test game anyway.

Towards the end of the year say mid November or something how about a game of p o g?
219 9/12/2017 3:40:00 AM 1757 Early Season France Message Actually, if you agree, I'd like to concede the game. No problem if you want to play the last turn.

I placed your army in HCN on my map (I often confond HCN and HCS) and I did not want to risk a large battle. If I won the battle, I 'd say I'm a genius -;) Now with a very weak french army I see no option for the last turn
218 9/12/2017 3:32:00 AM 1757 Early Season Britain Message 6/6

Heh..heh..

Can you do the leadership check rolls..

Let's imagine I activate several indian units.
Each indian attacks separately Ohio Forks.

Are the units inside the fort able to participate to each battle (each indian attack) ?

148 9/9/2017 5:33:00 AM 1756 Late Season France Message It's a real pleasure to play a different scenario of WW. I play too many time AM scenario.

This scenario is more defensive than AM scenarion but is fun to play.

However, I must admit it's hard for me to have a pertinent view about the balance in PV depending of your new conditions. More, I think it's a good thing to have defined goals awarding VPs

147 9/9/2017 1:09:00 AM 1756 Late Season Britain Message No let's make that move by Johnson to allegheny North.

I reduce the regular by the way due to that mild case of pox.


So what do you think? Is the game enjoyable is it worth organising a little tournament.

It's obviously more defensive then the tournament game that I think it has possibilities.

I would assume the average final VP tally would be two vp's for the French.

By the way, to work out Winners and Losers in a tournament I thought of an interesting method.
You get not the average for all the games but the *median* Victory Point result and use that to work out winners and losers so that's not a problem.

So initially you'll just have to try and do the best you can and the better result you get it makes it just that bit harder for other players we're playing the same side.
Once we have ascertained the average result which as I said I would guess around fr2 we can move to some form of bidding.
