CRISIS GROGS vs GENESIS 5-player
« on: January 20, 2018, 03:15:09 PM »
This is for purposes of another game we're doing (which might get some DAR commentary here once we get going, much like our TIME OF CRISIS game did).

This time we're going farther back in time to the Late Bronze Age East Mediterranean / Middle East for GMT Games' Genesis.

Since we're unsure of the balance of the factions (if any), we're going to try rolling for them. 1 = Egyptians; 2 = Hittites; 3 = Mitanni; 4 = Assyrians; 5 = Bablyonians.

Any duplications in the rolls will be rerolled.

Dave [blockquote]Rolled 1d5 : 1, total 1[/blockquote]

Jason [blockquote]Rolled 1d5 : 3, total 3[/blockquote]

Larry [blockquote]Rolled 1d5 : 4, total 4[/blockquote]

Rich [blockquote]Rolled 1d5 : 5, total 5[/blockquote]

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

Okay, based on that roll, I got the Mitanni; Larry (Arizona Tank) got the Assyrians; and Rich (Tactical Wargamer? -- not sure, he's also a Rich) got the Babylonians.

Bart and Dave both rolled Egypt, so we'll need a reroll.

If Barth rolls a 1, he keeps Egypt; if he rolls a 2, he takes the Hittites.

Barthheart wins with the I WIN button  >:D -- I mean he rolls the Egyptians again.

Dave rolls the Hittites by deduction.

As an update, preparations for the game continue to prepare. We anticipate starting Saturday with the winner... I mean with Barthheart... placing his troops for the win, in the I WIN corner, first.  :D

(It isn't that bad; there are subtle game balances. But Egypt sure starts with an enviable position on the face of it.)

(... ........ uh, if you can't tell
how that was a haiku, I
certainly won't say...)

ArizonaTank
(i.e. Larry) now can place
his Assy troops! Heh!

(He'll actually start
as Sargon, for our first turn --
far from being ass. ;) )
