Chicago Area Triumph! Gamers

Feel free to reach out to me here with a PM if you are interested in playing Triumph! in the Chicago area.

We don't have any regular schedule but expect to start something like a monthly game day in the 2nd half of the year.

Re: Battle Card suggestion regarding Mongols

DK: "having (or preventing) extreme command point results is less important early in the game than it is later. It's not so bad to recover from having 1 pip, even two or more turns in a row, very early in the game." Not sure I agree when it comes to the Mongols or to the grand strategy pha...

Re: Battle Card suggestion regarding Mongols

DK, I am right with you philosophically. As an ACW gamer I always take out all the 'confederates shoot better' etc modifiers. National modifiers without specifically understanding how and when it exists makes no sense to me. I think we are talking more about grand strategy here. That spot between ta...

Re: Battle Card suggestion regarding Mongols

Just happend to see the following on TMP in a discussion of Mongol Auxiliaries by Chinggis: The Mongols seem to have made extensive use of auxiliaries from conquered nations or tribes. Is there any information about whether such warriors were integrated into mongol units or whether they formed separ...

Re: Battle Card suggestion regarding Mongols

DK, Mongols do seem pretty consistent across the years of their dominance. They tried tactics on the battlefield that other armies couldn't do. A Mongol army's success is more directly related to the luck of good CP rolls. But maybe giving them a small advantage would get a Mongol player to maybe ta...

Re: Battle Card suggestion regarding Mongols

DK, No special pleading on my part. Just wondering out loud if the CP system is robust enough to handle historical modifications and if there are other examples of better command and control at just below the army command level. I think it is, just not sure how to limit it. I would agree it should n...

Re: Battle Card suggestion regarding Mongols

I have played Mongols a lot with Triumph! and legacy systems. Mongols are better under Triumph! but I still think there is something missing. I think they are different than other horse bow armies at the commmand level. It probably is something very simple like a CP card. I might buy 4 of those and ...

Re: Mongol Feedback

Thanks for the responses. Of course, I'm not arguing from one game. And I like and play and defend plenty of chaos command systems like the CP system (Command & Colors and Piquet and its brethren) so I am in line with all of the comments. I have played Mongols a lot with Triumph! and legacy syst...

Mongol Feedback

During one of the demo games at Little Wars, a Mongol player split his force up into 4 groups taking advantage of the flanks available and commenting at this stage of the game that this felt pretty Mongol like (He had played in a Mongol-Pole game in a home rules system earlier in the day.) The combi...

Re: Little Wars Chicago

A lot of interest in Ancients and Medievals in general. SAGA, C&C:A, DBA in addition to Triumph! We had as many people come by and talk to us about Triumph! At the demos as we did play. We tried what I think was a successful strategy of doing the demos on Friday and Saturday night picking up pla...
