To The Strongest - Playtest

I normally don't post an AAR on a game I don't at least help to run, but I digress. Last Thursday the Baron ran a new ruleset called To The Strongest written by Simon Miller at The Big Red Bat Cave. It looks to be geared toward ancients, however we used Jaye's War of the Roses minis and had a very good time. The mechanics worked well and play flowed nicely. Rather than measuring for fire combat and movement, the rules incorporate a grid system (Jaye came up with some tiny adhesive dots to mark the grid that blended into the mat perfectly). I can't wait to use these rules for some ancients games down the road.

Hi Jon, I'm glad you had fun- it's a good looking game! That reminds me, I must ask the Baron about the green dots.

Hey Simon, they are just little round stickers (1/4") I bought at Office supply place. They are red, green, blue and yellow, but I just painted over them. Took about 2 minutes. The paint won't stick to the backing. Then just peal!
