Siege of Haengju - Ready for Play-Testing Tomorrow!
Well, we're finally getting to get in a play-test tomorrow for the Siege of Haengju game I've committed to hosting next month at our local annual convention, Enfilade! Out of the initial six or seven players, only about half will be able to make it tomorrow. That said, it should be fine as the ones making it are very experienced gamers, and in systems that I've based the rules upon. The rules for this game are a modified version of Hail Caesar with doses of WAB and DBA mixed in! Here are a few shots of the table set up - pretty close to what I had set up back last December (for a game that never materialized), but with the addition of more command stands and another Korean artillery piece.
A view from the side of the assaulting Japanese. The area directly in front of the Japanese are wooded, but passable for the cost of an entire move. To their right are rice fields which will also cost an entire move for small fields and two for larger ones. The walls also cost an entire move to overcome. Quite simplified rules, but geared for convention players with little or no experience with Hail Caesar.
