No dice and no rulers, how can this be any good - It Was Excellent
I mentioned in yesterdays post that Simon Miller came to Mansfield and in the morning we played a game of Chain of Command.
Well in the afternoon Simon set up a huge table and Martin in myself played a game using Simons' 'To the Strongest' rules. A truly epic game, well over a thousand figures on a 6ft x 12ft table.
Martin commanded a Republican Roman force, one half of his force was escorting loot back to the camp and had been ambushed by my Celtic force while the other half of the Roman force rushed to relieve them.
Martin was rushing his relief column up the field, harried by my light chariots.
Some bad command cards meant the Celtic attack stalled and the beleaguered Romans started to regroup, but the relief column also got rather sluggish.
