This was another of our small'ish Great War Spearhead games, a series designed to build our 'rules capacity', and reconnect with our 'gaming group.

Kind regards

Thanks again, Robin. This game further emphasised the importance of terrain-rich tables. There were multiple tactical challenges thrown up. Reading the AAR, I got a real sense of the rapid increase in tempo towards the end of the game. Very interesting.

Kia ora Robert
The word 'tempo' exactly captures the issue in this game (and the previous one). I have always found that a slow and deliberate development of the battle is (almost always) necessary. Patience is a virtue LOL I always try to adopt what I understand to be the 1914 doctrine.. make contact, win the firefight, then use movement to defeat the enemy. It is the development and winning of that firefight that is the essential component. Moving too soon is mostly disastrous (unless you throw fire dice the way I did last night LOL)
