North-Western American 1100 AD to 1770 AD

Any timing on updating this list? I just ordered 2 Tlingit armies from Eureka. A trip to the Royal BC Museum in Victoria a couple of years ago got me very excited about this warrior culture. (They also had a great traveling exhibit on Vikings at the time and the similarities in the water/mountain/wa...

Re: Camps

Jack, That is very helpful. it would be good to have this someplace. I always love a long game designers note on the rules themselves. I love the behaiorial explanation. I do think that this is more or a game design question than a historical one (i.e. measuring relative value and incentives.) There...

Re: Marian Roman Army in 15mm

The buildings are great. Great way to tell a story within the game.

Re: Camps

DK, You misunderstand my friend. Questions are just questions. I am spreading the goodness of ancient and medieval gaming, with Thistle & Rose figures hopefully, and Triumph!, to people who have foolishly played other periods in their often 30 year plus gaming careers. A number of these people a...

Re: Camps

DK, Thanks for quantifying. 50% plus is your assessment. That is not inconsistent with supply lines at all I would think. We are starting to play Grand Triumph! on a regular basis. A camp taken would thus be 50% of total victory points needed, so 25% of the 144 points or 36 points. Would it have any...

Re: Camps

DK, Right, I did explain it to them as noted and they get it, it's really important. I was looking more for clariication of the game decision about points towards victory. Their question was more about victory conditions and proportion to victory. So how important? Carry over from legacy systems or ...

Camps

Teaching and playing Triumph! with experienced gamers new to the 'ancients' world has raised a number of questions I have not been able to answer completely. As an example, I have been asked why camps are important, what they represent, and isn't 50% of the victory conditions (more than that if it i...
