3 way battle question
 
First, I wasn't sure where this should go so I put it here. Sorry to the admins if it's the wrong one.

Anyways my question is, when you play a three man game, everyone for themselves how do you split up your army? Like how do you choose which figures go where. Do you go after one person or both at the same time?

I usually don't play 3 ways a lot and wanted to pick up some tips on them when I do rarely play them. Thanks Guys

It depends. In a multi-player game I tend to react more than instigate. I wait to see how the other players act towards each other. If I'm in a three player game and the other two player are instnatly at each other's throats tearing it up, I sit back a little and maybe pick off stragglers or support troops, letting them hash out the melee mess. Once it's over, the victor will be gratly weakened, and I swoop in for the kill.

If I play a more carefully planned three-way game where each player splits his forces and tries to fight a two front war, I have to follow that lead as well, lest I be over-run.

GENTLEMEN...

One way is to have a 2 vs 1 match.
One player gets twice the points (1000 vs 2 500s)

Of course, you can always build a 3-way death map
with every man, woman, or marro for themselves.

Oops, misunderstood the question...

Yea, it depends on what's on the board and the board itself.

I've got to ask even though I might not want to know the answer....what's with the GENTLEMEN every post? Is that just like your gimmick? You quote AquaTeen? Or what?



To the point of the thread, Deadeye Dan and other long-rangers are useful in three-way games for picking off stragglers when the other two players get locked in combat as I mention above. Use Deadeye to get squaddies around the edges of the brawl.

I didn't think the 1st person to ask me what's up with GENTLEMEN..
would be someone who knows about ATHF... What's up with that?

Yup, not a big code to crack. I am a fan of Aqua Teen Hunger Force.
The name Dr. Weirdscaper is another clue, as well as my location.
Also, when I'm working on making maps (my creations) I consider
myself a bit of a mad scientist.

I know it's AquaTeen, as I said in my post....what I don't know is why you do it. I thought there was some deep reason or something....you're just a fan, that's cool.

Just a fan. You thought there was some deep reason- I would love to
hear your theories.
