Viewer's Choice Celebration MiniCampaign
It has now been over 20 years since I launched "With MacDuff On the Web" and nearly 10 years since I launched my 2 blogs: Gathering of Hosts and Battle game of the Month.
To celebrate the years and the friends and the million hits I've decided to run a 3 game mini-campaign in late October. By popular vot e it will be set in the mid 18th Century.

That's the sound of me suddenly realizing that I had forgotten the Immortals are "stubborn" and automatically pass their 1st break test of the game. That is one of the strengths and the weaknesses of WAB. The myriad of special rules allow granularity and flavour to be added in a simple yet effective manner but there are alot of them, only some of which apply to any given army so you have to REALLY know your own guys (or have a sharp memory). Luckily the rules provide for forgetting a special rule, it basically goes: "Too bad, if you're silly enough to forget, suck it up, no going back". Any way they could easily have broken on the Greek turn and the effect would have been much the same , maybe, .... ARRGGHHHH!
