Some thoughts on my scenario preparation for my first game of The Men Who Would Be Kings. I painted the armies years ago but never got them on a tabletop:

Prince Alberts Revenge,

My compliments on your figures and terrain and I hope you have a very successful first game using TMWWBK!

I am commenting here to let you know about a "house rule" which my friends and I use when playing these rules. We can't take credit for it as we borrowed it from yet another friend whose wargaming club came up with it a while ago.

It's an "action" called "RALLY WITH ELAN". This allows a "pinned" unit to attempt to rally and -- should it succeed -- then proceed to take an action the same way a unit that starts a turn in good condition can. This prevents players from having units get "bogged down" despite having rallied, while still allowing for the possibility that they may get bogged down if they fail to rally.

I realize you may not want to mess with the rules at all until after having actually played them yourself, but this adjustment is the product of many, many games played with the rules, so might be worth considering.

Once again, I wish you lots of success in your first game, and look forward to seeing your After Action Report!
