 Longships raid game

This is a short report on a “longships” game. Longships is the new rule set from Peter Pig. Longships covers ninth century warfare. The two players were Chris and Stewart. Both players were using Viking armies. It is a Viking on Viking raid game. This battle report show how the mechanism takes effect rather than a detail of each mechanism. For more detail see the PP website rules section.

Chris and Stewart used the points system to build their respective armies. Each army has 5 units and a general. The figure scale is 1 to 1.

Pre-game

Chris and Stewart carried out simple map based re-game. Stewart gained nothing from the pre- game. Chris on the other hand gained, a “re-roll reinforcements”, “ gain 2D6”, “no deviation arrival” and a “lose 1 base, gone Viking” events.

Because Chris won the pre-game he becomes the raider. Stewart takes the role of defender. Here is the pre-game map. Players proceed from start to end via a route of their own choosing.  

The building templates are set up first using a vector method. Notice the dots that delineate the 6” grid. Table is 5 x 3 feet.

The extra costs for European and US buyers are in order to offset some of the great costs of sending bulky and heavy items abroad. Don't worry I still drive a 20 year old Toyota! ask other manufacturers what car they drive.
