Entry # Time Turn Player Title Entry
174 9/8/2021 9:07:00 PM Turn 3 Brian Message Ok. Much activity.

First, the Fyrd draw card 08, for 4 Fyrd.

Then, Thegns play the Spy card (sorry, I didn't write down the number; 12 I think). Then I move 2 HC and 2T from Thetford the two spaces to London, leaving 1 Thegn to stay behind.

That puts a total of 5 Housecarls, 7 Thegns, and 4 Fyrd in London, against Ivar's 6 Berserkers and 17 Norsemen.

Big battle! You didn't say anything about event cards, but before I roll, want to make sure you don't have any event cards to play.
173 8/31/2021 9:30:00 PM Turn 3 Brian Message Ok, thanks. All with Ivar. Let me take a look and see if there is anything for me to do other than draw a Fyrd card.
172 8/29/2021 7:03:00 PM Turn 3 Brian Message London it is. However, before I draw a Fyrd card and decide on any combat cards, I would like to know where your previously fled Norsemen go: with Ivar, York, or Durham, or some combination thereof. You have 3 to return.
171 8/26/2021 9:22:00 PM Turn 3 Brian Message I didn't see a roll for your reinforcements, but perhaps you just drew a card. I'm ok with that.

Let's go ahead and see where Ivar wants to come ashore. I'll not play any cards prior to Viking Movement.
170 8/21/2021 11:29:00 PM Turn 3 Brian Message I can send out a summary of the English positions before your move, if you like. Didn't want to take the time this evening, as it's late already.

Also, I drew the replacement Thegn card, didn't have to redraw.
169 8/21/2021 11:14:00 PM Turn 3 Brian Message So your Norsemen are up next. And you will get either reinforcements or Ivar. And some returning Norse from the Fled box.

Back to you!

Message from Brian:
That's it for the Thegn turn. Let's see who moves next.

1 = Berserkers
2 = Norsemen
3 = Housecarl
167 8/21/2021 10:59:00 PM Turn 3 Brian Message Ok. Bjorn is vaporized with 4 hits. Thegns will ignore the command roll.

Your dice certainly aren't helping. And the faction order so far hasn't been great for your Vikings either. But I suspect things could turn rather quickly. I would not be happy to see Ivar appear right now, for example.

Let's see if I can finish off Bjorn, then. Still 2 Housecarls and 3 Thegns left, so still 5 dice, in that order.
165 8/21/2021 11:14:00 AM Turn 3 Jeff Message Must ignore.

Thinking this game is almost over already.

Not sure if it's the dice, the order of the cube draws or both.

Message from Jeff:
GRRRR.... my last die roll
163 8/17/2021 9:03:00 PM Turn 3 Brian Message That's a total of 3 hits, and 1 Thegn Flees. The Housecarl command result is ignored.

I guess my luck is evening out between this game and TLAGO, anyway.

I believe Bjorn is down to 1 Norseman. 2 Housecarls and 3 Thegns remain.

Back to you!

So again with 2 Housecarl dice and 3 Thegn dice against Bjorn and the remaining Norsemen, in that order.
161 8/17/2021 8:52:00 PM Turn 3 Brian Message Ok. I'm going to post this without looking at the map. Two Norsemen flee to the fled box, and with your one hit I will remove another Thegn. You should have 4 Norse remaining.
160 8/17/2021 3:54:00 PM Turn 3 Jeff Message SERIOUSLY, 1 kill and two flee, unbelievable

Two Housecarl and 5 Thegns remain for the next round of the battle. Six Norsemen remain. Back to you!

So we have the 2 Housecarl dice and 3 Thegn dice, in that order from top to bottom.
156 8/15/2021 5:21:00 PM Turn 3 Brian Message Ok. Will pull 2 Thegns for the losses. That leaves me with 6 Thegns and the 2 Housecarles to roll.
155 8/12/2021 4:39:00 PM Turn 3 Jeff Message Looks like 2 kills and a command which I will ignore. Cutting off my retreat makes this one to the death of the English. ;-)

Now we go to Chester where Bjorn and his 8 Norsemen face 2 Housecarls and 10 Thegns. Please note that my Englishmen are not overly confident about this battle.

Over to you for possible card play and rolls.

Message from Jeff:
My Norseman attempts to draw blood
149 8/3/2021 8:45:00 PM Turn 3 Brian Message Combat:

There will be battles in Manchester and Chester.

We will start with the battle in Manchester, where 4 Thegns face 1 Norseman.

Over to you for a possible battle card. English play none, so you may roll your die after your card decision.


148 8/3/2021 8:42:00 PM Turn 3 Brian Message Movement:

Thegns play card 04, 3 Armies can move up to 2 spaces.

1. 2 Housecarl, 5 Thegns move from Miercna to Chester.
2. 3 Thegns from Lichefield to Chester (leaving 1 behind).
3. 4 Thegns from Northampton to Manchester.
147 8/3/2021 8:40:00 PM Turn 3 Brian Message Prior to movement, English forces are disposed thusly, roughly north to south, west to east:

4 Thegns Nottingham
4 Thegns Lichfield
2 Thegns Leicester
1 Thegn Lincoln
1 Thegn Hereford
2 Housecarl, 5 Thegn Miercna
1 Housecarl, 2 Thegns Northampton
1 Thegn Elmham
2 Housecarl, 3 Thegns Thetford
3 Thegns Oxford
3 Housecarl, 5 Thegns London
2 Thegns Exeter
1 Housecarl, 2 Thegns Winchester
1 Housecarl, 3 Thegns Selsey
2 Thegns Canterbury.

So all 40 Thegns should be on the map, along with 10 Housecarl.
146 8/3/2021 8:35:00 PM Turn 3 Brian Message Greetings! Hope you had a nice trip! The English are prepared to offer you a warm welcome home.

First, as I agreed, I will pull a Thegn from Leicester prior to the Reinforcement Phase.

That puts 4 Thegns in the reinforcement pool. There are none in the fled box.

Reinforcements: Place 1 Thegn each in Leicester, Lichfield, Canterbury, and London.
145 7/19/2021 9:27:00 PM Turn 3 Brian Message I had two on my map to start in Leicester. I think I missed listing the one there when I made my hurried entry of unit locations at the end of May when I lost everything when the program timed out. It has never been empty. I should have updated all unit listings at the end of the last Thegn turn, but got lazy, especially because of the high number of units milling around in the backfield.

Much easier to drop units in the listing instead of adding them on the map. I assure you there are no Flying Dutchmen here. Let me know if that's acceptable before I proceed. Probably a distinction without a real difference anyway, since a missing Thegn will just re-appear somewhere else.
144 7/19/2021 9:45:00 AM Turn 3 Jeff Message Humm.... question on Leicester move.

You said 4 move out leaving 2 = 6

I showed 1 there, +1 reinforcement, +3 fled = 5?
143 7/18/2021 8:06:00 PM Turn 3 Brian Message Thegns get to move again. This will require some study, so I will end here for the evening.

Message from Brian:
Let's see what faction gets to start Round 3!

1=Berserkers
2=Norsemen
3=Housecarl
4=Thegn
141 7/18/2021 8:02:00 PM Turn 2 Brian End Turn
140 7/18/2021 8:02:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message No battles this time. Thegns draw their replacement card, and don't have to redraw.

That concludes Round 2!
139 7/18/2021 8:00:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message For movement, I think we have determined that there are no Viking cards that affect English movement, so the Thegns play card 7, allowing 3 armies to move 1 space each. A bit on the slow and plodding side, to be sure.

An army of 4 Thegns moves from Leicester to Nottingham, leaving 2 Thegns behind.

An army of 2 Housecarl and 5 Thegns move from London to Meircna, leaving 1 Housecarl and 2 Thegns in London.

An army of 2 Housecarl and 2 Thegns move from Canterbury to London, leaving 1 Thegn behind.

That's it for the move.
138 7/18/2021 7:48:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message First we have reinforcements.

One Thegn each in Lichfield, Leicester, Oxford, Thetford, London, Canterbury, Selsey, and Winchester. Two in Exeter.

Then there are 4 Thegns in the fled box. Let's put 3 in Leicester, and 1 in London.
137 7/18/2021 7:35:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message Very well. The Fyrd are defeated and Bjorn ends the Norsemen turn in control of Chester.

We move on to the Thegn portion of the turn.
136 7/14/2021 8:42:00 AM Turn 2 Jeff Message Okay that clears out the peasants and we will stop there. Drew card and we are good.

133 7/7/2021 8:30:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message Clearly, these Fyrd are accompanied by the ghosts of King Arthur's Court!

2 hits to your Norsemen.

If this were a real Medieval battle, despite the odds this might be the point where the entire Viking army breaks and runs. But it is a rare game that models that very well.

Well, some hesitation there by the Norse in the face of angry peasants! Sending one Norseman to the Fled box.

128 7/6/2021 9:20:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message So the 3 is a command result for the Thegn, which I think I will use this time. It withdraws to Lichfield.

The Fyrd, however, get a NE and a hit, so Bjorn's last Berserker dies. But the brave Fyrd stand.

Over to you for your roll. Only Norsemen left.
127 7/6/2021 9:15:00 PM Turn 2 Jeff Message 7/6/2021 5:36:00 PM

Message from Brian:
No battle card for the English again.

Three total dice. 1 for the Thegn, 2 for the Fyrd, in that order.
125 7/6/2021 9:13:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message I still don't know what movement card your Norsemen played.
124 7/6/2021 9:12:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message Yes, not sure how I miscounted the Fyrd. Three were still there. No matter.

So one Norseman left behind, and the rest of Bjorn's army to Chester, where stands but one lone Thegn.

Fyrd draw card 13, so only two Fyrd join the battle this time. Perhaps others heard rumors about Manchester.



123 7/6/2021 5:42:00 PM Turn 2 Jeff Message Bjorn will leave 1 Norse behind and push into Chester with 1 Berserker and 11 Norse. No Battle cards.
122 7/6/2021 5:39:00 PM Turn 2 Jeff Message That should give us 3 kills of your peasants. [think you actually had 3 left]

Your people should rebel for being used as cannon fodder like this!

Message from Jeff:
Card 3 for the movement.

Indeed the Berserkers led the charge to break the shield wall so I guess it makes sense.

Sound like you had a lot of fun - I'm enjoying relaxing after all the hiking/walking we did in Sedona. :-)

Okay this is for my lone Berserker that's left

119 7/5/2021 9:28:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message The Housecarl flees, which under the circumstances isn't all that bad. One Fyrd hits, and another flees, leaving 2 Fyrd standing. Your one loss must be a Berserker.

The slow but steady drain on the Berserkers is an interesting twist in the game.

Over to you for your rolls.

Message from Brian:
You didn't mention any combat cards to be played by the Norsemen for this battle. In looking through the possible cards available, I don't think you would play any under the circumstances even if you could. So I'm going to go ahead and make my roll without playing any cards either.

One Housecarl die, 2 Fyrd dice, in that order.
117 7/5/2021 9:18:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message You didn't tell me what card your Norsemen played to move. Let me know with your next message.
116 7/5/2021 9:15:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message Sorry for the delay. Holiday weekend preparation and execution took up more time than expected. Did an overnight backpacking trip up to the summit of Cold Mountain Saturday, and back Sunday. About 13 miles and 2800 ft elevation gain round trip. Had to recover last night!

Anyway, your count of troops appears correct, and the Fyrd draw card 05 for 4 Fyrd.
115 6/30/2021 3:32:00 PM Turn 2 Jeff Message Okay drew a replacement card for the Berserkers - all good.

5 Norsemen returned from the fled section.

Leaving 3 Norsemen behind in York Bjorn will lead 2 Berserkers and 12 Norsemen into Manchester.
114 6/29/2021 4:23:00 PM Turn 2 Jeff Message Nice, I will do some thinking and launch the next slaughter tomorrow most likely.

Hummm.... that bloody card of you costs me troops in every single battle! Think I'll just stop here so it burns itself out. So let's see who is up next 1-3 are your lads 4-6 are my fearless Norse.
112 6/20/2021 5:15:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message Ouch! Pretty good results for your Vikings this time, perhaps making up a bit for your last defensive rolls.

So you lost two Berserkers total and 1 Norseman. The English are wiped out in one roll, so Bjorn does not lose a movement point at York, and has up to three moves remaining when you get home!
111 6/17/2021 11:54:00 AM Turn 2 Jeff Message We appear to have an epic slaughter!!!

I'll let you take another look while I'm gone. :-)

Okay last Email for a week and a 1/2 :-)

I'm good with the Fyrd result and I'm sure you told me before but what order are the die results in for them since it's two vertical columns?

Yes lose a Norsemen for the second loss there.

So first my 2 remain berserkers
108 6/16/2021 8:56:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message 2 hits, so I make up some ground there. One of those has to be a Berserker. I assume the other will be a Norseman, but that's your call.

I'll do these separately this time, starting with the single Thegn die.
104 6/16/2021 8:47:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message Ok, looks like you head off for vacation tomorrow, so I will send you off with the English die rolls at York this evening, since TLAGO will likely take me more time than I want to invest this evening.

First, to remove 1 Berserker from your army. They go home rich and happy.
103 6/14/2021 5:43:00 PM Turn 2 Jeff Message In case we missed it the Beserker card was #3

Think I'll hold onto the card I was thinking of using :-)

I'll lose a Beserker to you evil card!

102 6/13/2021 10:51:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message Getting back to the action here. Bjorn lands at York, playing a 2/4 movement card. Fyrd draw card 14 for just 2 Fyrd. Housecarles will play card 11, however, requiring the Vikings to remove either 1 Berserker or 2 Norsemen before each battle this turn. I don't quite get the "up to two" unless that indirectly means that if there is only 1 Norseman, pulling that 1 would satisfy the requirement.

Anyway, you said you had a card play to consider, so I will not roll any dice quite yet. After you pull your unit(s) and play any card, English have 3 Housecarls, 1 Thegn, and 2 Fyrd defending.
101 6/9/2021 1:10:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message Quick note here, since I just happened to be online. I don't think you can add your Norsemen to Bjorn at this time, because it is the Berserker turn. I think they can only come back when the Norsemen get their turn. Don't have the rules here, however.
100 6/9/2021 1:02:00 PM Turn 2 Jeff Message Greetings,
Finally got a second to sit down with this one.
Interesting that in the K we both had the same type of article - although yours was much better written.  :-)
We shall see if it helps, have another new guy that seems to have gone missing in the Kremlin game.  :-(
Bjorn will add the fled units to his army giving him 4 Berserkers and 16 Norse
Play card 03 to land in York!
I believe you draw your peasant rabble card first and then I may have a battle card to play, depending on how much cannon fodder you have.  ;-)
Regards, JeffAHIKS/AREA:  A1303
99 6/5/2021 10:58:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message Ah, so many cards to play, so many...

The English will play no cards during the VIking reinforcement phase. Bjorn may proceed!
98 6/1/2021 5:19:00 PM Turn 2 Jeff Message I drew Bjorn to start the next pillaging of the English country side!
97 5/30/2021 9:16:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message Please pause after you draw your Leader card for potential English card play in your Reinforcement phase.
96 5/30/2021 9:12:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message Looks like Berserkers are next, so you will get to draw your Leader Card. Ivar, Bjorn, or reinforcements.

Oh, I have to draw my Housecarl replacement card. Done. No need to redraw.

On a three-sided die, 1 is Norsemen, 2 is Berserker, and 3 is Thegn.
94 5/30/2021 9:07:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message So we end the Housecarl move with 1 Thegn and 3 Housecarls in York.

You have 1 Berserker and 1 Norseman each in Carlisle and Durham, as the Viking forces on the map. You also have 5 Norsemen in the Fled Box.

Relevant English information is that there are 2 Housecarls and 4 Thegns in the Fled Box. Everything else stands as when the English entered York.

Now to see which faction moves next.
93 5/30/2021 8:56:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message Success! All 3 hit, so the last Norseman and Berserkers are eliminated. And Halfdan bites the dust as well, under the circumstances. At significant cost, I might add.

Regardless, you appear to be correct, I think I missed pulling a Housecarl somewhere. So prior to your rolls, there were 5 Housecarls and 1 Thegn. So I'll pull another 2 Housecarls, leaving 3 Houscarls and 1 Thegn.
90 5/28/2021 10:56:00 AM Turn 2 Jeff Message So 2 kills and 1 miss I believe.

85 5/27/2021 9:29:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message I am satisfied with 1 Thegn in Leicester. That's what I have on my map, so it wasn't a typo. I don't need to go through the prior moves to check.

In consolation, you do have a pretty good pile of Norsemen to return on your next Norse turn.

Remove 2 Housecarl and 1 Thegn as the 3 English losses.

Humm... looks like a match except I show 2 T in Leicester?

No cards sadly enough so here are the 2 Berserker rolls
81 5/19/2021 9:21:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message Unbelievable! My session timed out and I lost my entire written move. So I am going to abbreviate this one.

First, Housecarl place only two units. There are 3 in the box, but it appears that each faction has at least one extra, and I already have 18 on the map. One each in Canterbury and London.

Housecarl play card 06, for 3 armies to move 1 space.

1 Housecarl and 2 Thegn from London to Northampton.
1 Housecarle and 2 Thegn from Winchester to London.
9 Housecarl and 5 Thegn move from Manchester to York to finish the job there.

To summarize unit locations, I have:

1B and 1N each in Carlisle and Durham.
2B and 3 N with Halfdan in York.
9HC and 5T in York.
1 HC in Manchester.
1T each in Chester, Hereford, Lichfield, and Lincoln.
2T in Oxford.
1HC, 2T in Northampton.
1Y in Elmham.
2HC, 2T in Thetford.
3HC, 5T in London.
1HC, 1T in Winchester.
1HC, 2T in Selsey.
2HC, 2T in Canterbury.

1T, 3N in the Fled box.

Over to you to consider card play for the York battle. English will not play any cards, so you may also make your first roll.

I hope I didn't make any mistakes typing. I hurried to get it all done so I didn't lose it all again!
80 5/18/2021 5:24:00 AM Turn 2 Jeff Message No worries, still dealing with the wrapping up of the sale on one house and the purchase of the other although I think we are almost there for both now. ?Insane what house prices are going for now - I bought the place maybe 5 years ago for 212,500 and the sale looks like it's going to be for 358,500. Of course the capital gains taxes are insane so that will take a bite.

Hope you are feeling better!!!
79 5/17/2021 8:57:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message It was my hope to return to Vikings this evening, but I have a bit of vertigo tonight and think I shall retire a little early. But it is my next game up, so the next day or two.
78 5/13/2021 9:03:00 PM Turn 2 Brian Message Hmm...looks like the Housecarl are up again on the roll of 3. As I hadn't really thought much about that possibility, I'm going to have to pause here and ponder my next move.

Message from Brian:
So here we are starting turn 2. I shall go ahead and roll for the faction to move first. I had not really given much thought to it before we started our game, but it seems it is possible for one side to get as many as 4 moves in a row. Probably pay for it if that ever happens, but we'll see.

Rolling a 4-sided die. Let's go 1 Berserker, 2 Norse, 3 Housecarl, 4 Thegn.
76 5/13/2021 8:56:00 PM Turn 1 Brian End Turn
75 5/13/2021 8:56:00 PM Turn 1 Brian Message Ok. I thought we corrected the corrections, but rather than go through all of that again I'll send ONE berserker and Halfdan back to York to close out the battle. Helps us both a little. So you have 2 Berserkers and 3 Norse in York (only 1 Berserker technically with Halfdan, but as Halfdan can absorb whatever forces are there, a distinction without a difference). There are 10 HC and 5 Thegns remaining in Manchester.

So to close out turn 1, the Thegns draw one card to get back up to three. Card drawn, no need to redraw.
