Some thoughts on serial wargaming and C&C:A.

In a similar vein, the Fencibles have been playing mostly Bloody Big Battles for the last two years. We have played a few ancient games the last couple of months.

At least with BBB we don't spend much time going through the rules.

Even with BBB, you do spend time in the rules if you don't play it very often!

Years ago I played WRG Ancients week-in-week-out. I still found it hard!

C&C Ancients has great replayability, because one is never going to draw the same hand of cards, twice. An excellent choice for a game that is to be played multiple times!

Doc, the main reason we don't spend much time on the BBB rules is because we play them a lot. That said, I still get asked how far infantry move, what is artillery range, etc.
