As I am leary about the ease of play of Command and Colors Ancients and how the board is divided up like Memoir 44 and it seems like a game for beginners I was wondering what people consider the best ancient warfare game in that period on that scale, and I mean not a grand strategy game but something like Field of Glory but not miniatures based.
Has anyone made anything like that that is ALSO popular and played on Vassal quite a bit?
Commands and Colors Memoir style suits ancients battles well. It a good fun competative game. Sometimes easy is best. Beyond that the next best thing would be GBoH. Those are quite more complex/realistic, wich consumes more time to play.
Commands and Colors is great when you want to play three or four games in no tie. Great Battles of History take an entire afternoon and then some.
I guess it's up to the amount of time you have for a play. Having both is well too.
GBoH, hands down. It has its flaws, but blows away the
traditional movement pulsing for feel.
I started playing GBoH and then I tried Simple Great Battles of History. Nevert went back.
SGBoH plays faster, gameplay feels almost the same, and gets same results.
