A three part video instruction to Sword & Spear (not mine).

I watched the first 15 minutes of part 1 and I'm sure it's quite good but it's very slow. I don't think I could watch parts 2 & 3 (about 2 1/2 hours).

2.6 hours! Gads! I agree with Ian. Too long. I appreciate your hard work but videos and such should be treated as if you are explaining the game to a player right before you play. 10-15 minutes tops.

Agree with above---at 2.6 hours it should be a documentary of how the game came about--way too long

Perhaps we could get Steven Spielberg to produce a wargaming video for you guys. I guess if I was an amateur and put a video on you tube to help people understand a set a rules, I wouldn't ever mention it on "the minaitures page".

I'm about half way through and its really kindled my interest in the rules while my original reading through had not.

i started out watching the dark age game video, had it on while i painted, and ended up watching the whole thing!

the vid is great for game play information and took effort to make. i applaud it.

If you cut out everytime the word "Umm" is used, you could cut the length down to 1.3hrs!

Maybe redo the vid with a script and speed up the explanations, well done for your effort, but I found this very boring, and I have the rules too!
