1173 9/20/2018 11:10:00 AM Turn 19 Purple Message I am happy to play Purple agin if everyone would like to hone their game tactics by playing the same nation again.

Jamie. you OK to give Green another whirl?

1172 9/20/2018 8:47:00 AM Turn 19 Blue Message I'm also up for another game. I'll email Pekka and ask him to create Hispania 2 as a clone of this one.

I'd like to play Blue again now that I understand it better, but I'll play a different color if needed.

Thanks!
1171 9/20/2018 12:15:00 AM Turn 19 Pink Message I am up for another game, I would like to keep Pink and see if I can improve with them. I set the bar quite low so I have a decent chance. I play this game so seldom that I have no feel for the better moves. If I can't play Pink I will happily play any color.
1170 9/19/2018 2:04:00 PM Turn 19 Purple Message Some observations

Regarding my nations, The Iberians were poor, I put all my eggs into 1 basket and a poor die roll did for them.

Romans struggled to start with until they get their big stacks but ended up ok. H-Romans score not too bad in the long haul.

Compared to other games the Sueve did quite well I think, as did Leon.

Franks were good and Aragon were extremely good. And Valence were a little, Meh!


I played Green in a previous game (before the errata of Badjoz set up) and in that won by a considerable margin (I think Jamie would have as well if Saragosse had survived), I think a few more plays may indicate that on balance Green is strongest (like Roman in Italia 1). It has a strong start & finish with 2 nations that are difficult to pin back (Lusitaniens & Badajoz).


Don't get me wrong, Jamie played an excellent game but none of us have yet to get a grips on the best ways to play our own forces while holding back our rivals. Its a lot longer that Brit, has more nations and is much more random.

I have to admit I think the game is better before castles appear as they seem to cut down on movement options and can cause gridlock.


I will be interested in your input regarding how you thought the game went.


BTW I shall be away for 1 week from Friday.

Yusef + 18 Elite Infantry appear in Africa. They have Religious Zeal for part 1 of their move (no stacking limit & +1 on combat rolls).


Moving from Africa means they can only get to Cad & Gib in the first part of their move but they have no stacking limit due to the Religious Zeal.

In T18 they score for Knights killed and for rebuilt Castles.
