We wish to announce our Autumn "Wargaming Weekend"
Andy has been running board wargaming weekends for the last 30? years, formally and formerly as part of the European Historical Board Wargaming Society; lately with what we regards as friends. Second Chance Games has a large enough customer base that we thought we would be able to organise a board wargaming weekend and open it up to our customer base. Our Autumn one is established yet we welcome new attendees. We are rooted in the board wargaming industry and this is one way we can give back to the community.
Rising Eagles is to be the the second volume of the "Eagles" series. Following on from Fallen Eagles (The Battle of Waterloo), Rising Eagles covers another of history’s most famous battles - Austerlitz.
Game scale is regiment level for units, 250m per hex and one hour of real time per turn. The map has been produced by the combined efforts of Rick Barber (topography) and Sebastien Brunel (graphics, as in Fallen Eagles).
The game will include at least three short scenarios, together with a full battle scenario, offering alternative options to simulate the ‘fog of war’ and battle plans.
The order rules In Rising Eagles will have an even greater impact than those in Fallen Eagles. The ability to change orders will be reduced and it will be more difficult to “recall” formations, once launched. Initial planning will be an important feature, as befits a Napoleonic battle of such a scale.
In addition, ‘fog of war’ has been further developed and will be part of the main rules. Players will share some of the uncertainty experienced by the actual commanders, as to what precisely they are facing.
Initial play tests have shown that Rising Eagles continues to provide a tense and exciting game play, with strategic battle planning assuming a greater significance than the ‘slogging match’ of Waterloo.
