One Hour WargamesPosted: August 8, 2015
… and at the time I wrote:
The rules in the … book are simple – possibly too simple for some wargamers’ tastes – but I think that they should prove fun to use, especially if they cover a period that one does not usually wargame. The scenarios appear to be very useful, and I have already spotted a couple that I might well try out in the not too distant future.
Since then I have used some of the scenarios to fight a three-part Operation Barbarossa mini-campaign …
… but I have not as yet used the rules.
I suspect that this situation is about to change.
The reasons are quite simple:
- I read the rules very thoroughly whilst I was on our recent cruise … and liked what I read.
- I have had conversations and emails with people who have used them and who say that they are excellent … and who cannot understand why I have not tried them yet.
- I have read several blogs that extol their virtues.
- I have joined the relevant Yahoo Group and discovered some very simple variants that I want to try for myself. (I am particularly interested in the ONE HOUR HEX WW2 RULES written by Martin Rapier and the 1 HOUR WW1 NAVAL WARFARE rules written by John Armatys and Martin Rapier.)
Hopefully I will be able to try our Martin’s World War II rules sometime soon, especially as it seems an age since I last fought a wargame.
