So my challenge is to come up with a scenario that will not only work with the technology, but exploit its potential. I’m thinking along the lines of a game where he doesn’t get the full picture. I could show him short clips of what is going on on the table. Hmm. But what to play?
I have SYW and ECW forces ready. Or I could attempt to finish enough of the WWII or AWI in time. The advantage of the first two is I have reasonably well tested rules, but the second two would give me an added incentive to get things done.
There are some great possibilities here. I think I need a clear plan and a clear method for carrying out the game.
If anyone wants to chip in with suggestions for historical battles, or imaginary scenarios I am all ears. I will of course post an account of the game. SYW doesn’t have to be limited to Prussians v Austrians or Russians. It doesn’t necessarily have to be SYW.
