Here's a visual from a recent playtesting - by Elias Nordling - of The Astarpa scenario (Hittites vs Azarwans) from CHARIOTS OF FIRE . . . which should be out by early winter. They are playtest map and counters . . . not the ones you'll see in the actual box . . .

Living in Interesting Times

Give this to Sarah Palin . . . she did her best to push Jackson off "the front page". Maybe we should ask Sanford for another interview . . . As for Jackson:



"he should have been prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law regarding the child molestation cases."



He was. He was acquited. (That doesn't mean he didn't do what everyone seems to say . . . )



" I just hope to hell no one tries to nominate this freak for sainthood."



No one is. A considerable… Continue

Oh, I see it now, it was a comment from Don L a few months ago.

"but folks who play one game to the exclusion of all others are not my "cup of tea" ."

I agree. I play mostly ASL becasue that is what my group exists to play. But we have non-ASL gaming weekend now and then and i also play a lot of the other stuff out there. heck my basement is full of games; they need to get played. Now that I have a few years of ASL under my belt and I play it enough to keep it fresh in my head I find more time to play other games.

They're now full-sized cats . . .and even nicer. They're more socialized than a $9 hooker . . . The ASL comment came from something udner one of your comments. I enjoy an occasional ASL scenario - I even designed something similar of TIDE OF IRON - but folks who play one game to the exclusion of all others are not my "cup of tea" . . . and they are missing out on a lot of fun. Like eating only steak when you go out.

<"ASL the universal languages of war gamers, right, no?">

Where is that from? I don't think ASL is THE universal language for wargamers. But there is certainly an ASL sub-culture in the hobby... and a part of it is very dysfunctional.

Looking for playtesters for HOUDINI, this Euro-style game for 2-6 players (4 is probably best, but who knows?). Some dierolling (not much), auction mechanics, uses historical magicians and tricks, but only as chrome. (Not a historical simulation.)


Players win the game by amassing the most Victory Points. Players gain Victory Points for Fame and Wealth, and they gain those by playing Tricks Cards - that they buy, often by Auction - that enable them to perform Escapes and Illusions, announce/answer Challenges, gain ownership of theaters, and survive the demands and dangers of doing all of this. Each “trick” will require differing levels of skill, and many will sap the stamina and strength of the Magician. Performance of tricks earns Money and Fame. The winner is the player with the most Fame and Money at game’s end.

Rules are 4000 words. Fairly simple stuff.

Components: 1 and 1/2 decks, one 11X17 gameboard, 5 Magician Displays, 25 counters, Fake Money. You get all of these by email (you have to print them up . . . lots of neato graphics, by the way . . . compliments of Bob Wilson . . .i think), except for play money and dice.

Playing Time, under 2 hours . . . we hope . . . that's why we playtest. And playtesting is at 2nd level now . . . game has changed more than a tad since the original level (2007)

Wanna give it a shot? Playtesting IS work . . . but it can be fun, and we appreciate it immensely.

If interested, email me at BergBROG@Comcast.net

Thanx

I thought you were out of town...say hi to Karen. If you noticed, I sent you the first draft for the Kadesh scenario. I am going to make counters and playtest it a few times this week before my next business trip.

Have fun...

Mark
