Computer Wargaming / Strategy/Tactical Battles in Tudor Period?
« Last post by spelk on Today at 05:36:26 AM »
I've been watching The White Queen and The White Princess, covering the goings-on in Tudor times. Then I realised, I don't really know what wargames cover that period that would allow me to sample some of the era in terms of Strategic or Tactical level combat, manoeuvre or logistics. (I presumed something along the lines of Paradox/AGEOD would have something... possibly PIke & Shot custom stuff?)

Does anyone have any suggestions for a game that would give me specifically the Tudor era, from about Henry VII through the Elizabeth I? (approx 1485-1603?)

The engine is fine for some games doesn't do well for the ones more epic in scale unfortunately.  I still love RoP, ACW2 and AJE especially.  The engine is just fine when they keep the proper scale. The smaller wars of the Romans is a great example versus the epic scale of World War I which was horrible

   I agree.  I think RoP and the Roman games worked well -- because of the scale and technology involved and a good analytic structure behind the scenarios.  The game system is completely at the mercy (as any system is -- but it is more painfully obvious sometimes in the AGE system) of the casual analysis of the events.  The thirty-years war and Espana! just did not arrive in a reasonable analytic ballpark approximation of the events they supposedly portrayed.  The early 18th century should work fine in the AGE, but the analytic side can still fail in ways that are just as unimaginably weird as in thirty-years war and Espana!

What are you talking about meng? “At the mercy of the casual analysis”? “Not arrive in a reasonable analytic ballpark approximation”? “Analytic side can still fail in ways that are just as unimaginably weird...”?

You’ve totally got me scratching my head...this is either total jibberish, or very high-level grog speak that is way over my head.  My money is on the latter!

You are all entirely too kind.  Good to see that there were so many music lovers to come along on this journey.  Super glad you did  :bd:

So I thought 'these songs' were going to be in the one that is going on right now.. Much better songs in here!
