Caesar vs. Pluck at Cold Wars
« on: March 22, 2017, 06:48:23 PM »
I've posted a report about the game I ran at the Cold Wars convention in Lancaster, PA this past weekend.  It was using an ancients variation to Howard Whitehouse's Science vs. Pluck rules.  I also include some pictures or other games. :

Thanks!  Yes I had three of the Clever Paper biremes, and one scratch-built.  The longships and the grain barge are also paper, using a pdf I got free from a website (of course, I can't find the website now) - the barge is heavily modified.  The Syrian pirates are scratch-built using the dhow templates from the old Major General's website.

I got them from the company in Russia, they seem to have the lowest prices:

I've ordered from them several times and never had a problem.

Fun looking game and a fantastic table.

Good looking game.

I've always liked Science vs Pluck and suspected it would translate to other periods, is that Ancients  version available anywhere?
