Fistful of Lead: Bigger Battles play test
« on: November 08, 2019, 06:42:35 PM »
...or what we're calling it for now.
Last night was another playtest for our rules for playing larger scale Fistful of Lead games. We're trying to keep the same mechanics for the most part, so that players familiar with FfoL can jump right in to larger battles.
For this run through I dug out a fraction what used to be my GASLIGHT armies. An Anglo-French army was battling a German force for control of a key crossing. At the end of six turns we checked to see if night had fallen.
I present the Battle of Spikey Helmets

I'm interested. Want to hear more.
May I suggest an easier 'working title' of FISTS full of lead. (FsFoL)

Not interested in the VSF bit - very interested in how FFOL expands into a game involving more than 6 or 7 figures per side  :)

Deep joy.
