Title: SNF (July 6, 2019)
Post by: Cyrano on July 02, 2019, 04:03:37 PM
BP2

Austrians versus French pickup game resulting from my TTS instructional stuff.

Players?

Sides?

Bear in mind I am recruiting you for Quatre Bras.

And, yes, I also want to finish the game with Vance so I’m double-booking him :)...utterly without his consent.

...and, let me note, I am always happy to teach, but I did set out the rules in the first 45 minutes or so of last week's video.

If there is anything specific for noobs, I'd appreciate it. I have TTS installed, but that's about it. I'm still planning to join in this week.

Since I'm playing the Austrians in our forum pbem kriegspiel, I'll be glad to reprise that role for Quatre Bras.  :rockon:

The most awkward bit has been getting everybody on board to play both for the game itself and for chat.

Can you friend me on STEAM if you've not?  I'm Cyrano...the one with the Reisswitz picture...there are impostors out there...

In game, Ive got the physics turns down and drop height down too so anyone familiar with the RTS drag-and-drop should be fine.

I think the think requiring the most dexterity -- not that it's too much -- is selecting the unit and pressing the tab key while them moving the unit to enable measuring.

Everything else is pretty much knowing how to play Black Powder..

Only need TTS for this?

Might try to join depending on if the others want to go do something Saturday. Been wanting to play this for a while.

Do we need a microphone?

Only need TTS. Jim has made all the toys and has the rules.

Yes you need a mic to talk with the rest of the group. I mean you can type but you'll never keep up.

I use an inexpensive headset/mic combo. Think it was $25.

We use Steam chat for comms.

I have a good Yeti mic. I just haven't broken it out in a while. I can do that, was curious how much trash talking there was.

My pronunciation of "b's" and "p's" is going to be off, but otherwise this should be do-able.  :rockon:

Well, all right.

I've got six command slots open and a very, very big board built.

This will probably go very, very poorly.  But it will be fun.

I'll get in eventually. I do have TTS installed at least.

Absolute, unshirted, screaming blast.

Thanks to everybody.

I believe not sobers significantly outnumbered sobers.

This was my goal when I started doing these.

You can't skirmish sober.  It's just not proper.

I am absolutely certain that French light infantry never went into battle sober.

As the nominal sober player, I also was the one being dogpiled on the defensive (when our side was supposed to be on the offensive), and lost the first and only unit so far.

Make of that what you will.
