I tried FoG, even bought all the army list books, but no matter how much I tried to like it most games either bored me or made my head hurt working out complex melees with pike units that didn't line up with the enemy units. Some games were fun but not enough for me to persevere with it. It's seldom played at York now though I believe there is a FoG tournament at our upcoming Vapnartak show. These days most of our ancient and medieval games use Impetus rules which I think are great.

If I had to say what FoG's plus points were I'd choose the clear language and diagrams. It's also got a well supported discussion forum with friendly contributors.

For me a waste of money in hindsight but we've all been there haven't we.
