Comments

Initial phases of creating this module while updating rules to the Third Edition. Game is Rob Beyma's elegant simulation of attritional WWI campaigns. goal it so define a tournament scenario and administrate a tournament. By the nature of the event is simulates, this is a game of attrition rather then tactical manuever.

Version 1.1 (2017-10-28)

Some bug fixing. Removed unused parts in order to be more lightweight. Added Boardgamer 9-4 mod on railways as an extension, which can be accessed using the 1914 scenario on the bottom of the list of scenarios.

July 6th, 2009 Update:

I've added a new updated version (1001). This corrects a handful of miscellaneous issues with the previous version and makes the map more responsive.

This uses the Wargame Academy Vassal Team template (Easton, Thomson, Wise). Images are created within Vassal; larger scale (bigger hexes) maps & counters, prototypes, and the latest counter traits.

Game information

Version 1001

The v1001 module removes individual unit designations. This is a fork, not a straight revision of the older modules.

July 31st, 2011 Update:

New updated version (1003). Corrects Help menu. Adds historical startup scenario.
