At the Club's August Games Day Mark Woods organized a multiplayer game of Basic Impetus using his fabulous 6mm collection. I went Roman with John while Mark and Des faced us as the Macedonian commanders. How would pilum go against pike?

Fascinating game based on the pre First World War European situation. More a game of politics than war. It also helps that I am currently reading The Sleepwalkers.

Summer offensive is under way. Axis evacuating North Africa. US and Japanese fleets all at sea and don't seem able to find anyone.

With still three months/turns to go, but now with a knowledge/better understanding of the Victory Conditions, this session came to a sudden, but not unexpected conclusion.
All rather sudden and brutal. I think VPs for losses would have been better as a cumulative total score. This avoids the reduction of losses when units are removed or replaced. It also gets over the point in time issue.
The supply depot only came into play with a major invasion and I'm not sure Anzio was worth the trouble.
However a most interesting and challenging simulation of this campaign.

Chariot races that is, featuring my new special 3D white chariot with tasteful black and red trim. It was a bitter disappointment!
There were two races. I only recorded the first. In the second we had one death, one badly injured rider who nevertheless regained his chariot and another badly injured rider who retired (took his chariot and went home - me!).
