Welcome to my strange alternative world of wargaming with toy soldiers: a game for boys from twelve years of age to one hundred and fifty and for that more intelligent sort of girl who likes boys' games and books (HG Wells, Little wars)
That could appeal.
I am hoping for a hit on this one.
Any spoilers to tease us with?
Full set of rules with fleet lists and scenarios from the age of the Trireme to The Age of Titans and the Punic wars. No hex grids required.
Awesome! Congrats!There's a big hole in the rules market for a classical naval warfare system. Hope it's a winner for you!
I initially wrote the rules for myself. This is a general set of rules for the average gamer rather than the naval geek.
On my to get list as well :-)Whats the minute of your rules John? Massed fleets? Squadron fights? Ship v Ship duels?
Massed fleets in squadrons.
Awesome. Time to watch Ben-Hur again then - "Row Well and Live"!
LOL: good movie but not entirely historically accurate. :)
Many of the great ones aren't :-)
Ramming Speed! Bum Bum Bum Bum Bum Bum. Seriously though good fortune with the book... sounds very interesting.
Dear John,Is the cover Syracuse Harbor?You already know this but I'll throw it out anyway: classical warships had free, well-paid oarsmen. Not slaves as in the medieval period and Ben Hur.That's a wonderful scene, but neither the Greeks nor Romans used drums. What's on record is that they had flutists (aulists to be technical) to mark the tempo.I look forward to it!Dave
I am not sure it is any place in particular, Dave, but Syracuse is a good choice.
Congratulations John. Really looking forward to this one!
Hope you like it Natholeon.
