We played another game using the computer moderated Carnage and Glory II rules:

Nice.

Interesting. Do you think you will try the rules again? If you do, are you going to try with smaller forces or try and recruit an umpire?

Good to look at, thanks for posting

Very colourful.

Do you think these rules would be good for solo play?

@MR Jones….I was going to ask the exact same question :)

Thank you guys.

Do you think you will try the rules again?

Yes, I think so. With a bit more organisation I think we could get things done a bit quicker; especially if we recruit another player.
Do you think these rules would be good for solo play?

Probably. One of the things we didn't do quite right is you are supposed to write down your declared charges and submit them to the referee and he enters them into the program. Impossible to keep your declared charges secret from the enemy during solo play but in our games usually they are obvious.

Mr Jones,

Carnage & Glory II lends itself extremely well to Solo play!

It's even super easy if you have a digital TV in your game room that allows you to project your computer screen onto the TV! Instead of walking back to the laptop all you need is a Mouse as you move from one side of the table to the other to perform all the input for the computer.

What makes C&G easy to Solo play is when setting up the Scenario you issue orders to each of your commands, which you can print out for easy reference. So as you play the game all you need do is have each command follow the orders they were issued at the beginning of the game!

That is a great suggestion vagamer. I could see the TV screen being useful when playing with a group as well just so everyone can see what is "going on" as it were.
