I don’t want to speak for the OP Sean, and I am sure that he will respond in due course, if he so chooses. But in the meantime, you could always check out his blog post of Sunday, February 7th, 2016, in which he gives a rather in-depth review of Hail Caesar, including a summary of the rules and the things he likes about the game.
Thanks Scott…..McLaddie……I admit that I’m sort of a novice with Ancients……my primary period is Napoleonics. But for a side period I am finding Hail Caesar an extremely fun game…..it has enough flavor to satisfy me as a side period and the uncertainty of command rolls has provided a ton of entertainment…….I have heard it is a little light on period detail, but I find it refreshing.
For me, the “useful rules” section in HC is a real highlight, allowing me to tailor the likely performance of individual units for as much (or as little) period detail as I want. For this and other reasons, HC has a better ‘period feel’ than any other Ancients rules I have tried – and that encompasses more than 20 different rule sets over a 30+ year span of time! Naturally, YMMV.
