There's our next Kriegsspiel. A hypothetical campaign between the US and Canada in the 1820's where Canada is trying to force the US to take over Quebec. It'll be like the Toledo War.

To be clear, I'd still sign up!  O0 It seems super-different from the Jena/Austerlitz fight. (Or as it turned out the Naumbourg/Leipzig fight.)

I've been studying how to convert REPUBLIC OF ROME rules to a forum game format. Progress is going well. Aiming to be ready for interest poll by autumn.

For the record, there will be another Kriegsspiel but it won't be the above (that was a joke). From what we discussed at Origins it will be one of two Napoleonic campaigns.

It's good for you. Maybe this time we'll introduce real supply rules and we can worry about starving in addition to getting beat up!


You should probably get to be French this time though...

If we do the campaign I think we're going to do, I want to be Lannes again. I need my death scene!

nothing saying that someone can't run the Canadian invasion of Quebec (yes, I get the irony)


I mean, it won't be me but someone could so it
