Many thanks, Rhys.

The gamer in me has to ask: did you find one set more fun to play than the other?

Gone Fishing – that is very difficult to answer.  I am going to give it a try when I get to blogging about the end of the 10×10 challenge.

However, my two instant reactions are firstly that I enjoy the beginning of games with W:AI much more, since they are so simple – and I enjoy the end of games with SPQR, since they tend to be more finely balanced, I can often see how the W:AI games are going to turn out when everyone gets committed; and secondly, the Neil Thomas rules give a uniformly good game, whereas Polemos SPQR veers between so annoying I need to give up and/or take a break and exceptionally exciting and insightful.
