We have now been playing the Black Powder Rules from Warlord Games for a few weeks now and like some adulterous liaison; the initial explosion of enthusiasm has dissipated to be replaced by confusion, guilt and recrimination.
Rob S still gives them the thumbs up. The rules are not too complex which is ideal for a man of his intellect, plus they are fast playing which is perfect for a club night game. Bob M on the other hand has a different view: He has taken issue with the prose of the book which has to be said is written in a very “unique” style. He also has some real problems with the rules themselves which he eloquently communicated by way of innumerable mutterings and tutting during play. Mick is still uncontroversially undecided. Though not as enthusiastic about the rules as he was initially, Mick concedes that they need to be played a bit more before final judgement is handed down. John S appears to like them but to be fair he is easily pleased and will smile benignly as long as he is rolling dice and killing stuff!.
