Command & Colors: Ancients

So easy. So fun. So rich. 

Onward, brave Carthaginians!

Wow, what a great game.

I’ve played Memoir ’44 for quite some time, and like it a lot, but I played Command & Colors: Ancients for the first time this evening, and I have to say that Borg’s rules system really sings in this implementation.

I got together with my friend, Ron, this evening, and played no less than four games of C&C over the course of 3 1/2 hours. Thoroughly enjoyable. I’d do a review, but there are plenty at boardgamegeek, if you’re interested.

I understand many people convert this game to miniatures. It’s sorely tempting, though I think I would just like to have figures on a mounted stock board, rather than doing custom modeled terrain for each battle. It would be totally cool to have little modular terrain hexes, though.

Must stay focused! Back to WW2 and complicated miniatures rules!
