Match 1 – James’ Anglo-Danes vs Richards Normans.
The First game played using the Saga rules system – first runs through always take a while, and this was no exception, however the rules are a lot simpler than some other systems we have played, so it all flowed quie well.
Some issues with the terrain rules, as 2 of the 3 required pieces were not placed in this game, due to there being no legal place on the table for them. Although this is more a problem with our groups terrain collection rather than the rules
james wins deployment – on beard
Anglo-Danes get the first turn and move off, using “Trapped” ability on a few Norman units to inflict some early fatigue (Marked by coins)
Jame’s Warlord and Hearthguard take the rocky center ground.
Rich Rolls some insane results for shooting – 12 peasants with bows – 6 dice – 6×6’s – Boom!
Despite the epic sucess of the Norman ranged troops, The Anglo-Dane warriors storm the Norman right flank and catch the Warlord out in the open, winning the game.
Lesson learned –
- Deploy 11 inches forward not 12
- Warlords arn’t tanks – and as such die easly
- Buy smaller terrain pieces
