ĎA Gentleman's War' is a simple game involving toy soldiers of the classic style. It is a relaxed
and relaxing game, where enough depends on the turn of a card and the roll of a handful of
dice to say that our disasters are pure chance, but enough cunning decision-making to claim
our victories as acts of brilliant generalship.

I get credit for victories but am blameless for losses?

Thanks for that Extra Crispy. The link there does go to a blog post by Howard about the genesis of the rules.

I have to add it to my Howard Whitehouse shelf at home. I started with the 1970s reprint of Little Wars, and my dad has thousands of these old 54mm Britains that are calling my name.

Picked up my copy at Cold Wars.

Have it on my coffee table right now…

Love it.

My copy is supposed to arrive from Amazon tomorrow and I'm excited to see what it is all about.

Mine arrived today! It looks like a jolly interesting read. I like the style very much. Will be trying it with ACW once I have some figures.
