Once with a boardgame many years ago.
And once with miniatures.

I don't remember much about either game, not even whose side I had.

I want to but not even once.

At least six

Never, not a naval gamer.

At least six, also.

Less than zero

noigrim04 Mar 2018 2:38 p.m. PST

Once, planning on twice next october
Trafalgar and Waterloo could be my annual games

Next you need to ask if you have gamed the battle of Salamis. Triremes ramming each other, now that's a naval battle.

Kevin in Albuquerque Supporting Member of TMP04 Mar 2018 8:50 p.m. PST

Only once.

Lascaris04 Mar 2018 9:58 p.m. PST

Twice, once with WS&IM and once with miniatures at historicon

Jim Selzer04 Mar 2018 11:04 p.m. PST

I think we did with the old Battle line? WS&IM but that was over 40 years ago so lets face it has been too many beers later so I am unsure

Never. Unrepentant landlubber that I am, the only naval gaming I do is age of steam and later :)

Used the old Wooden Ship Iron Men game years ago as mentioned by J Selzer above. Never with miniatures.

I loved WS&IM back in the day, but Trafalgar?

I'm seriously asking here – how long did that take? More than a day?

Supercilius Maximus Supporting Member of TMP08 Mar 2018 3:39 a.m. PST

I used WS&IM for a solo re-enactment. I seem to recall giving up after the two leading ships of the British columns got sunk whilst still some way off.

(Anyone else consider it ironic that the British should beat the French by attacking a line with columns>)
