Noticed that this site has links to the other Richard Borg C&C games, but not Tricorne. Has anyone tried C&C Tricorne yet? I was wondering if it was any good. Thought it interesting that the dice for Tricorne have only one infantry symbol and two retreat symbols.
It's very different. Not only are there 2 flags and 1 inf, when you retreat you have to make a rally roll. Basically you get as many dice for this roll as you have blocks in the retreating unit, with a bonus for having a leader or being a full 4 blocks and a few others. On this retreat roll, you must roll at least one flag or your flee giving your opponent a victory banner.
So there are less hits and more retreats, but those retreats can be disastrous.
I'm liking it so far and hoping this site adds a Tricorne page.
I bought the re-vamped Hold the Line last year. I like the mechanics and the a-symmetary of many of the scenarios. Equally I like the idea in Tricorne of each side having it's own deck. So I haven't (yet) gone for the expensive Tricorne but I do know Richard Borg's C&C always delivers!
I too am enjoying Tricorne. Components are top notch, thick terrain tiles and victory point markers, high quality dice (no stickers). I am constantly amazes on how RB can use his base game engine to create the feel of a period, in this case the 18 century. Rules such as opening cannonade, morale checks and how terrain provides protection are very different. It is rapidly becoming my favorite CC flavor!
Hi everyone, I'm a big fan of CCN but interested in Tricorne. The mechanisms seem different. Can you tell me if it is valuable to buy it because of its elevated price (if I had know it before I maybe had made a pledge on KS) ?
Thanks for your answers.
