Oky, so I have gotten the War of the Roses bug and was going to use Chipco's Days of Knights for club games (6-8 players). Searching through posts here, however, I noticed several advocates of the Bloody Barons rules. My question to the group is how BB would be for multi-player games? I have looked through other Peter Pig rule sets and they seem to include lots of pregame mechanics which, though pretty cool, don't appear to lend themself to games where people wander in and say "so which guys am I pushing around."

Any thoughts on either of these rule sets for club games? Or should I just wait for the Osprey rules, which will use a different basing mechanic altogether?

I have played both, and I agree that it takes some time to set up a game with Bloody Barons. I don't think you can lose though cause both sets are great in my opinion. I would lean towards Bloody Barons for a campaign because of the pre game mechanics.

I've never tried Bloody Barons, so I can't comment.

Days of Knights will play without a hitch with multiple players. I'd suggest giving each player their own pool of ecus and track each casualty loss per player. This means that one player's units might break (e.g., at the 25% and 50% casualty tests), while the others will fight on for the moment. I might also suggest the whole army loses if the center battle breaks (66% loss).
