A first game with new rules

Postby ochoin » Thu Oct 05, 2017 7:26 am

I plan to run the very first game with our new Napoleonic rules; ‘General D’armee’, sometime before Christmas.

As one of my goals is to sell the rules to my gaming pals, I want everything to work well & hence, my reason for soliciting advice. The rules are fairly dense & offer a lot of scope for tactical nuance.

If I outline my thoughts, could I have your thoughts and criticisms?
1.Two of the other four gamers in our group are very experienced H&M (& Napoleonic) gamers: the first game will only involve them.

2. Likely I’ll be the only one who’s read the rules (2 times + I’ve watched the ‘how to play” you Tube videos), so I’ll ref. My two pals have copies but to be fair, lead far more complex lives than I do (young families etc)

3. A simple encounter game using only my figures & with as small forces as is practicable (4 brigades a side). I will leave out some of the more complex aspects of the game (eg the optional Fog of War mechanism, attacking/defending BUAs etc) & allow us to concentrate on the core mechanisms.

Are you aware of this forum? Dave Brown is very good at answering any questions and would most likely give you some guidance. ... armee-f18/
