It has been a week since my last post (games 6 to 12) and I was on track, playing another 6 games in 6 days – playtesting solo friendly ancient rules and programmed opponent. No rules changes, a few tweaks to army lists and the programmed opponent. Lots of fun. At the moment I am a few days on and one game behind (but that is for another post). The dry reporting of the games, a few pictures and lessons learnt along the way is at this blog post:
Yes – I was surprised that I had thought through the implications of a rule a year or two ago and when it came to playtesting it worked, forgetting that I have actually thought though the implications! I have spent a lot of time with these rules over the years – I still look up the odd event that comes up about every ten games or so that I cannot remember and is not on the QRS, and find the answer is in the rules. The mechanisms seem to be hanging together and I am tempted to expand the designer section by another page explaining why I have chosen the way different troops types interact.
It is the end of day 21 and I have a few minutes to go on game 20. So I am still in with a chance to finish 30 games in 30 days.
