We played a trial game of Chain of Command on Monday night!

We chose the patrol scenario and it was set in 1940. We had a time limit which would allow us time for coffee and rules discussion after. As we played each phase we went through the rules in detail until we became confident. The game ran smoothly (if a bit slowly early on as we checked rules several times) and was quite engrossing as each 'phase' you were challenged with how to pick our command choices. I think we got the rules pretty spot on, except for leader casualties when we automatically killed two Junior Leaders when we should have rolled for severity of the hit instead (it was one for each side so it balanced out haha).

When we stopped for our debrief the game was anybody's, the Jerries having lost two levels of morale to the Brits one Level. Next time we play CoC we will go for a full game.

Some pictures from the night;

Yeah I bought the rules a while ago, haven't got around to playing them yet.


I was planning to go to Little Wars, unfortunately something has come up but I still hope to duck in and have a look at the the start or end of the day.
