toutoune - ATLeague 2:3

no5no6: 2 penaltys for ATLeague but very big tickets
as usual in this variant, taking the penalties seem to be the good strategy

Draw Open: my combo (Por-Pho, Mon-Atl) is dead, I block LA-NY finishing quick and win.

8+: I pushed 4 times to a penalty, 3 of them were not called.
bad decision around the end of the game, where I can easily manage my route to complete my 2 big tickets (Sea-NY and LA-Chi) when ATL has the hand free of cards, but I take the risk too much and I am blocked

5TixMin: we both miss a small ticket, I have less points but more on the board and win by 4.

Snake: I got locos, SF-Atl+HEl-LA+Dul-Hou vs LA-Chi + Win-LR.
When ATLeague starts on 6 grey, I have 8 pink, so I plan to go through the 6+3 pink. I start the 6 pink. ATLeague the 4 blue. 6 Orange for me. And 3 pink kill me.
Probably better to do differently, starting from south, but I was out of black/green.

But nice games, grats Andrew, and all the best for the final

Thanks for good assessment Constant. I'll add my 2 cents with what I can remember, esp regarding any turning points in games.

Game 1: Decide to keep all three tix including van-mon. He goes heavy through middle and my chi-no is completely blocked, forcing me to take 2 penalties (to complete north) and tix (since I already had one dead). First set, I find LA-NY, cal-slc (not completed). Second set I find Sea-NY, LA-Chi (and could have kept den-elp. Comes down to end I have 6 black to connect to LA; however, if Constant lays 6 I would not be able to play them (As I could take penalty and I couldn't.) I thought about blocking la-chi, but in the end he plays for longest, and I take 3+3, no third penalty. 144-98

Game 2: I waited too long to play 6 orange (He only had 4 drawn, and 3 cards from the beginning I didn't know about. Alas, one was orange and another loco) I suspect Phoe early so block that. I overdraw a few times to still try to connect my La-NY (Den-elp was other ticket), and could never catch up. Left too many cards in my hand for a 69-57 loss (Had I just let him take Phoe, and I could take 6 orange... my colors were nice beyond that)

Game 3: I missed 3 penalties, the 3rd intentional, as he had so many possibilities to pick up. He is connected from NY-LA (I have SF-ATL, SSM-nash, den-pit). He lays 1 to Sea. I have enough to block both SF-LA and LA-LV, so I definitely call his 4th penalty to block both and complete my tix. In the end he lays 6 yellow, and has a few turns to connect via 5 red, but doesn't get enough. 117-75 me

Game 4. Constant is right on with his eval. I thought he had a 2nd missed ticket. Thought quite hard at blocking 1 to van on my last turn (he had van-fe), but instead decided to take 7 track points with four red, pretty sure I had the game won. Nope, 123-119 him.

Game 5. He is right, I had 6 black, 7 green, 7 red, and there were a few more black open. Plus it is hard to start south in snake when your opponent starts north. I had la-chi, win-lr, so I think I still would have been able to complete my tickets had he started 6 black (or better yet, 6 orange). But after my hel-slc, not much of a chance for him to get both sf and la.

Thank you for the games. Now hopefully Drake can make it both a Division C Semifinal and Final. Smile

Re:Overlord à 2 contre 2 et obstacles/terrain Thu, 29 January 2015 00:38
Hello,

Je confirme ce que disent Ryo et Sauron

Si tu veux jouer avec les règles overlord a 2 contre 2 il te faut partager les rôles avec un joueur qui joue les sections droite et gauche de l overlord et l autre joueur joue la section centre et le rôle de commandant en chef.

Concernant les cartes de commandement, il te faut utiliser un deck overlord unique pour la partie.

Ce que tu décris comme mode de jeu n est pas un "overlord" mais tu peux bien entendu t amuser comme cela aussi et tu seras alors proche d un mode de fonctionnement proposé dans l extension D-Day.

L important dans ce cas est de jouer de manière synchronisé un camp puis ensuite l autre.

Bonnes parties à toi !

a preciser que gérer la section droite et gauche est quand meme galere (a aprt si vous jouer debut) c’est pourquoi celui qui gère les cartes prend une section sur le coté

Re:Question about Soul Touch Thu, 29 January 2015 11:59
SandraaK wrote on Sun, 25 January 2015 17:02

According to the rules of the base game, when the last token of your in-decline is conquered and you have no more in decline tokens on the board, the race banner and special power go back in to the stash.

How does this work with soul touch? Does it mean that you can not use your soul touch power if you no longer have in decline tokens on the board?

Because then your opponents can trash your special power by going after your in decline race.

Good question. I figured the race banner was only discarded because it had become irrelevant, but now, doing so could affect Soul Touch. I'd love to hear an official word on this.

Two Questions about Skags (vs. Elves, redeployment, abandoning regions) Thu, 29 January 2015 12:59
I just purchased the expansion A Spider's Web, and a couple of questions have come to mind about how Skags work that I'd like to address before they come up in a game. If possible I'd like to get an official DoW ruling. Any help?...

Question #1: Skags versus Elves
When Elves conquer Skags and come across a Skag Attack loot marker, do they lose a token to the tray like other races? Since the Elves' ability is worded "when an enemy conquers one of your regions," I'm anticipating that their race ability does not apply... but in a sense it IS a conquest loss.

Question #2: What happens to attacking tokens after a failed conquest?
Regardless of whether the attacker is using Elves or not, it is likely that the failed conquest will result in surviving attacking race tokens. Are they set aside until redeployment, not to be used for conquest again this turn?

Question #3: How do loot markers in abandoned regions work?
The rules specifically say that loot markers are left behind when Skags abandon a region, but what happens when opponents conquer an empty region with a loot marker? Does it get flipped and resolved as usual? Are Skag Attack loot markers still functional traps even when the region is unoccupied?

Thanks in advance to whomever can help. Smile

Sur le replay que tu joins, il n'obtient pas trois médailles avec une même unité de chars.

L'unité qui gagne la bataille obtient seulement deux médailles Rolling Eyes

Je pense qu'il n'aurait pas dû obtenir la médaille Evil or Very Mad
Bug ? parce qu'il gagne 4 médailles en un tour et qu'il conclut en prenant une médaille-objectif ?

Une fois de plus je suis d'accord avec toi mais tu vois que cela fait au moins deux exemples dont un récent pour lequel cela se produit je vais donc faire un mail à DOW soit pour l'obtenir soit surtout pour qu'ils corrigent le bug.

Re:An Overlord Question and Purchasing Question Thu, 29 January 2015 00:56
Watch sites like Ebay, for these kind of games usually there wil be somebody that has had enough and puts his/her entire collection for sale. Usually those collections are better priced than all the expansions seperate.

I personally have a fondness for the Eastfront because I like the look and feel of it. So I would recommend stuff like Winter Wars extra Eastern pack and the winter desert board. But as said before that is personal.

Try playing on-line (DoW or Vassal) that's a cheap way to find out what you like.
But nothing beats tabletop gaming. Smile

Jeroen,

Your use of the MEM44 boxes are ingenious. What products did you use for the dividers and the tile holders. It looks like it's custom made dividers. Is it plastic? Did you cut it to size? The tile dividers look like some type of heavy duty cardboard. I really need to do what you have done as transporting all the stuff is daunting. Thanks.

Eric


Hi Eric,
Th dividers are simple cardboard but then I used plastic sticky film to cover it in two directions. I made separate containers for the tiles but this way I could fit 5 rows in instead of four. (I might post a photo of those containers later, haven't made a good one yet.)

Here is the bag with everything in it (except for rules, CB's and A1 printouts of scenarios we got at tournaments)

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/30626174/M44%20Stuff/M44Dozenetc/M44CBag.JPG

So this is two base games all the army expansions double (Russians Japanese British) four battle maps, Dd-day landings and two breakthrough boards and two standard boards (Ok I confess: The winter desert boards are not in there Smile )

In the right front pocket the box with all the badges rulers and dice. in the left front pocket a painted (third) base game set I picked up the other week.)

Oh and I
notice the card box is missing in this picture. Will probably post that later.

Having had this practice you should see the "inlay" I made for my Battledore box that one I covered with Battlelore images before putting the film over it. And that worked out really nice. Smile

Ha, believe it or not you truly have. I really appreciate everyone's help and advice! I am a little shocked this thread was still on the first page.

I do have another question. Has anyone else's dice sides started to rub off? I would really like to purchase more in the event I have more people playing in a team style of game but also to replace ones that are rubbing off.

Ok I when I got off work I went home and opened the box back up to set up scenarios as suggested. Thank you to everyone for the helpful advice...I will admit I should not have taken the book so literally during set up. As for the hedgehogs and barbed wire...it looks like I will be painting them, I might be a little OCD in that aspect. Thanks again for all the help!


As you can tell by this picture, I've painted mine:

http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg214/ronh51/Die%20Con%2012/IMG_0652_zpsvaybmlui.jpg

The green sandbags are still green, but the gray ones are now ready for the beach or the desert. I left the gray hedgehogs gray, but painted the green ones.

http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg214/ronh51/Games/1218183307_zpsab6b8e65.jpg





Those look great! I plan on picking up some paint try my hand at adding rust to the hedgehogs and some shadding to add depth to the wire. I have really only gotten a couple plays in as there are only a couple people in my group that would enjoy it and appreciate it. Only after a couple play I really do enjoy this game even though I have lost every time! Dang dice!

My advice about the dice...don't trust in luck.

Sure, sometimes a game can come down to a final die roll, but a lot of new players will dive into attacks hoping to get a perfect roll. Then they get frustrated when the dice don't go their way and their unit is now open to a devastating attack. Instead of diving in, stay in your cover and don't open yourself to dangerous situations.

Have fun. Cool

That was not the problem I am having with the dice....the problem I am having is the symbols are rubbing off of the dice after only three plays.

May I suggest some clear acrylic coating (varnish)?

New dice can be found in the overlord expansion or a second base game.

I do know DoW customer service has been great at replacing missing and broken items. Maybe you can try your luck with them and then apply a varnish to the newly arrived dice?
