Mark and me would offer a Epic Demo game with Vassal module on Saturday, 24th Sept., 21.00 GMT.
We both would play as CiC and everybody can take place into a side/section (also during game), when he join in
We would play the easier 2player Epic rules, exept we get at least 3 players on each side.
So we have played the demo. It took us 3h25 minutes and at the peak times there were even 6 players in the room:
Allies - Bayernkini, GG & me
Frennch - Mark McG & Sansmerci
It was very intense and interesting game - I am sure you will be able to see all the details once Michael posts a log.
Enough to say that game was decided in last turn - 13-11 for French - however, if not for the kill in last turn, the victory would go to Allies as they occupied Ventosa for 2 VB at the start of their turn. And battle for Ventosa in last Allies turn I will remember for long time - that Elan allowed to score Allied left (which I had pleasure to command) 4 banner with prospect for another two. The final situation on the map is in attached file.
All in all, I have very much enjoyed the game and mechanics - thanks to the Card rack, there is no need for additional, EPIC deck, and rack itself gives additional dimension of the game - sometimes you play card just to prevent opponent from playing...
Looking forward to future games in EPIC mode with many players - that is the biggest fun.
There are in Europe many good generals, but they see too many things at once. I see one thing, namely the enemy's main body. I try to crush it, confident that secondary matters will then settle themselves. ~Napoleon
