Hoping you don't mind: I shared that replay on my own site's FB page. 

You know I had had Hollandspiele on my Wargamevault follow list for updates, and  -well I never got an update. I ended up spending my smallish Print and Play budget -so have to wait until it builds back up (different times at the moment) -   but I was looking to have picked up Horse and Matchlock back around Christmas time but it hadn't been available then. 

I mean in one sense it is a moot point as I don't have a hobby for a little while longer.

Anyways ...


Picked up Vol II (Sport of Kings), and Horse & Matchlock - still won't be able to do anything with it for awhile.


 - Edited: Looking at the viability of doing some single image maps for scenarios.  And it is looking like I have to get in on the Annuals as they get loaded up.   
Also - whatever can stand in for regimental guns. Am sort of looking at maybe if it can convert to a block game, or even miniatures game. But - yeh software project stuff first- that's just what I have been throwing around in my head.

The father of Sean Chick, designer of Horse & Musket, passed away last night from COVID-19. Please keep Sean in your thoughts.

Yeah, he said he'd be unavailable for awhile. That probably impacts you like it does me, in terms of game development.

I've been behind since isolation started, anyway. I might reach out here in the next week or so since it's been a while since we've touched base.

I saw on Compass's site that the game is not on the 'upcoming' list yet (nor anywhere else) so I imagine it'll be late 2020 or probably more like next year.

Had a great learning game of this last night with Doug.
Very easy system to pick up and play. Plays fast but still has you thinking about how you want to accomplish your goals. Rules definitely not getting in the way of tactics and strategy.
Seems like a good "feel" for the era.

Yep, its a great system - as you say, easy to learn but has a lot of period flavour. Welcome to the club!  :bigthumb:

That was a ton of fun last night Vance. Looking forward to another game!

Hi Rambone! I think you'll be happy with it. I'm doing the development work on Volume IV right now, which will be out towards the end of the summer or in early fall.


Shoot me a note if you want to play some on vassal.

It may have been mentioned elsewhere but is this on Tabletop Simulator?

I’ve done two minis scenarios and have another finished. All for SYW.
