Piquet - best mechanism for solo. Soor 1745 Pt.1

Postby olicana » Wed Mar 25, 2020 12:43 pm

Covid 19 is here in its misery and most miniature gaming opportunities have evaporated under it enveloping cloud.

I'm striking back, in a very, very small way, to try ease the tension with a minor diversion. I can play solo games to take my mind of it for a brief while. Solo play isn't something most players do. Partly, I'm sure, it's because most solo games hold little tension or surprises. I know of one set of rules that dispel that idea. They are called Piquet.

I've just started a series of reports on my solo refight of the Battle of Soor 1745 with specific, and constant reference, to how Piquet rules govern games and why Piquet is the best set of solo rules ever written (IMHO).

And, there's a lots of pics too, if solo still isn't your bag.

That looks fun.

Alas I can afford no new purchases at the moment until Her Majesties Revenue & Customs give me my personal bail-out in June-ish.
