Utgar:
Cyprien and Sonya as king and queen. Rechets as bishops. Grok Riders as knights. Ogre Warhulks as rooks. Marro Drones as pawns.

That's how I'd do it.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Acefrehly,

Howdy, neighbor! You're on Long Island? Do we know each other? Check out the Events thread and go to Plainview this Saturday for LIScape's monthly play date with Griznakh and the Gang. Come into Brooklyn Heights to play here!

PM either of us for more...

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Just had a C&C Ancients Epic (2 Player) of Raphia (Successors of Alexander). It was fun getting CCA back on the table after two years, and this was the sixth of the eighteen Epic scenarios of it I have that I've managed to play (I've done all of the CCN regular scenarios, and that's over 100 games).

Eventually if I keep having more players around these days, we can rotate between Memoir 44 D-Day Landings, Epic Ancients, and Grand Bataille C&C Napoleonics when it comes out, hopefully in 2015. For now, see my idea of a four player CCN game by combining two regular games side by side on that bgg discussion board...

I'm not much into Eurogames myself, but I play light Wargames and Themed (Ameritrash) designs a lot, as well as with my 54mm toy soldiers (see the Other Miniatures thread).

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

ACE,

Aha, its you! Some guys have handles that don't reference their real name, and others don't visit the site much. I hope you'll be coming over to visit before next April. After that of course, we'll be playing more Age of Conan here, with expansion. Glad you'll be a potential player ally...or whatever.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Ha ha, Ace. My wife has a brother named David Hewett. He grew up in the 70's. So once we were talking to someone who lived in the same city as my wife's family around the same time, and he's about the same age as David. So we asked him if he ever knew a David Hewett. He said, "I never knew anyone named David Hewett, but I did know a kid named Ace Hewett."

David was a KISS fan and had apparently renamed himself in honor.

Hey I played my first game of Small World on Saturday! It was very enjoyable. We wound up playing 4 more of the next two days. I won 1 of 4 four-player games and another three-player game. I think it's going to take some time to learn when certain race combos are optimal.

Dwarfs are terrible.

Feedback: We could all use a little more

My friend that taught the game had some cool large player aids that had the race abilities on one side and the other unique possible abilities on the other side. So that helped, as well as him explaining how things worked. After a couple rounds I got the hang of it and it worked out well.

The combinations are pretty neat and it seems like a lot of replayability with all the different combo possibilities.

Didn't get to try the Dwarfs.
