With the recent publication of the Deluxe Edition of GMT’s SPQR module, I am delving back into this game to increase my library of ‘series’ games that have core rules that can then be used across many battles.
This is a good time to return to the series as the Deluxe Edition has been much expanded to include the previous (and otherwise out of print) spin off modules such as Trebbia.
Also, the 2nd Edition of the alternative rule set ‘Simple Great Battles of History’ is currently in print, which significantly streamlines the original core rules (Note - while the main original core rules are supplied in the Deluxe Edition, the ‘simple’ rule set is a separate purchase).
I really want to put Trebbia on the table, but it makes sense to put the introductory scenario up first to get a feel of the processes and capability / relationships of various unit types.
Please use the ‘read more’ tab for the rest of this post.
