A new beginning

Posted by Barry Miltenburg 15 September 2018 14:58:00

Hello and welcome to my FYOB Blog.

This is something I have been meaning to do for ages and have only just got started, now that FYOB v5 is out there and the review of FYOW is well under way.

I have been playing and re-playing old games and running new scenarios in a burst of enthusiasm for gaming that, to be honest, was waning during the FYOB review - I just didn't get enough time to do the review AND play as well!!

Recent games have included a small amush scenario featuring a US CCA Recce Troop bumping into a German infantry company supported by a PanzerSchrecke team and a MMG.  A bit of "Concealed Elements" and "HE against buildings" alongside the usual rules for moving and firing.  I have found that playing a quick, simple game just keeps the brain ticking over and ensures that I don't forget the basics.  It also helps to reinforce the new bits of FYOB that are different from the way I have been playing for a couple of years.  To be honest, some of the new rules are just lifted from what I did anyway (The Order Dice Rule for example), but some things are different - like the "Command" section in place of the old "Initiative" section and how the rallying is now part of "Command" rather than being tacked on the end.  I'm glad I changed this because now that I have got used to it, it makes so much more sense!!

I will post a couple of pictures of recent mini-games and pen some thoughts around current campaign activity shortly.

In the meantime, please feel free to add a comment to say "hi".
