Chain of Command first test game...



Last Sunday I hand Jonas had our first go with the latest rules "Chain of Command" from the Too Fat Lardies.

As we tested it in my kitchen we were limited by my kitchen table so the gaming area was just 60x90cm, we used our old 15mm collections (Jonas used his Germans and I my Americans) and used cm instead of inch.


Even if I haden´t realy read the rules it turned out to a greate game with lots of tense moments. The very inovative activation system worked realy greate.

I realy like the use of a patrol phase (have to learn how to use it to the best in future games...) and that all units are keept of board and you during the game have to decide IF this is the right moment to send them in.


It seems like we will be running some more Chain of Command later this autum, probably in 28mm, we just have a 1930´s project to finish first:)

I took some more pictures during our game and you will find them in the AAR over at Jonas Blog, so just keep moving there:)

    1. Indeed we have Rob.

      And I think they will worke wey nic in a 2 persone game but I dont think they will work as nice in a 6-10 persone game.

      The rules I been working on and we have used the last times have the main aim to get a god and smoth game for 6-10 players, to achive that I have had simplified several things.

      Best regards Michael

  5. Thanks Michael ... more great stuff here! I'm actually getting ready to play a game of Bolt Action --- but we are pulling the patrol phase out of Chain of Command (along with the jump off points and such) to see how that all works together.

    1. Thank you Jay !

      It will be very interesting to heare about your mix of rules, but as the Patrol phase realy are a game within the game I think it will work realy well !

      Best regards Michael
