We played a game of 1644 with the WSS mods yesterday. The rules were originally written for the WSS and later retrofitted for the ECW period.
We liked 1644 in the first instance due to their relative simplicity and the fact that we were using them to introduce our son’s in to historical gaming.
The game worked well, and the boys enjoyed it, but things that stuck out as “could do better” were…
Movement – at 4” per turn, 2” if you want to fire, it was veeeeerrrrryyyy slooooooooooow.
Moral – has modifiers for casualties for H2H, but not from firepower, meaning that units were being reduced to quarter strength without flinching.
We’ll sort that out for our next game and hopefully that will see things improve.
