324 5/23/2020 2:24:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message Hannibal is my all time favorite game. I just got knocked out of that PBEM tournament. I played POG a lot when it came out, but grew to dislike it.

This tournament has drawn a larger field in the past. Many people who used to play have moved on to other games I guess.

Hopefully WBC will be back next year. The problem is that the average age of the attendees is very high and a lot of them are in poor health. If there is no COVID-19 vaccine by then it might get cancelled again. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Good luck next round and in POG.
323 5/22/2020 11:25:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message I play a pretty varied mix of games with my local game group, mostly multi player stuff, either euro games, some of the Pax games (like Pax Porfiriana, Pax Pamir), Dune, a bunch of stuff (we're getting Twilight Imperium 4 out over internet tomorrow :)

For CDGs I like Hannibal, and am playing in the PoG tournament that is going on (hanging by a thread in the 4th round). I have to say I really do like Wilderness War quite a bit though. I'm pretty surprised that there aren't more people playing it. I really learned to play the game reading the WBC reports, which I'm pretty sure you have had a big part in, so know that those things are definitely getting read and are useful.

I've never been to WBC, but my local friend that I play CDGs with and I were planning to go this year, which is obviously not meant to be. Pretty sure we'll go next year for sure though (he's also playing in the online tournament).
322 5/22/2020 10:44:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message You are correct that the interception rules are vague on that point. This situation is rare. I may be thinking of a clarification posted somewhere by the Designer. I'll see if I can find it. The general rule of thumb for fortress spaces in CDGs is to think of the space as actually 2 spaces - inside and outside.

It may not have mattered. Without Wolfe and the Rangers the odds would have been against you.

But that was a strong effort considering your level of experience. I lose as the French very rarely, and I should have lost this one. I guess the Wargame Gods smiled on me at the end!

What other games do you play? Do you attend WBC?
321 5/22/2020 10:17:00 PM 1759 Late Season Britain Message I actually didn't think I could do that. The way I read the rules on interceptions in 6.72 it says for each space a force enters you can intercept, and i didn't think coming out to break the siege counted as that. It probably wouldn't have made a difference, but I should have asked....probably too tilted with the raid fail.

I've played a few times, twice in person and then the first tournament game. I have a lot to learn...losing a VP on that stockade capture early on and then not covering Deerfield really cost me. It was good to see how to play the French well though as I think they are more difficult to get the hang of so it helped me.

Thanks for the game.
320 5/22/2020 10:07:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message Anyway, you had me. I just got very lucky at the end.

Thanks for the game. I was impressed with your play. Have you played this much? Usually "new" players have a lot to learn, but you obviously know what you are doing. Your "Niagara Blitz" certainly caused me a sleepless night or two!
319 5/22/2020 9:59:00 PM 1759 Late Season France Message [Rangers] are destroyed.

Why didn't you try to intercept into Montreal with your main army? The odds would have favored me in a big battle, but that was your best shot.
