Inhalt

Ich zitiere ausschnittweise die Rückseite der Box:

The King’s War is a two player operational simulation of the English Civil War. […] Each individual Leader is rated for his (and her!) seniority, army handling, and tactical skills. […] The map depicts all of England and Wales centered around the key counties and towns. Each player maneuvers his forces and attempts to defeat his opponent by controlling his strategically important recruiting areas […]. It is difficult for large forces to annihilate one another; holding the field and securing your supply lines […] is of supreme importance.

The King’s War covers the full range of features characteristic of the war. Rules covering walled towns, fortresses (both major and minor), sieges, regional politics, bad weather, the clubmen, revolts, desertion and recruitment, naval movement, ambuscades, the Self-Denying Ordinance, Scottish intervention and more all combine to make this a superb study of the English Civil War.

Meine Meinung

Wieder ein ungespieltes Spiel auf dem Schrank! Leider! Regional movement statt hex movement gefällt mir gut. Die Konzentration auf Recruitment und Supply ist ebenfalls schön. Das Kampfsystem scheint leider das Aufeinanderwerfen großer Haufen zu favorisieren. Nicht so schön.

Fazit

Bin gespannt!
