LOL, didn't notice this poll and the following discussion. I should check this section of TMP more often ;-)
Well, actually I do like preliminaries…ehm, well not only in wargames ;-)
Joking apart I never though in this way, simply I wanted a game that could be played in one evening as my standard time is 2-3 hours (and I suppose is the same for most of the gamers).

Was there another rules called Impetus? Really?

POLL DESCRIPTION

According to Wargames Soldiers & Strategy magazine, one of the keys to the success of the Impetus Ancients ruleset is their speed of play:

Units are able to move at relative speed and have maneuvering capability, so the preliminary advances are not eternally drawn out.

Is Impetus taking the right step, in speeding up the preliminaries so that players can get right into the fighting?
