Sharp Practice Advanced Orders Now Being Taken

The rules are at the printers, the cards are being produced, the Poker Chips are en route and the Game tokens are rolling off the production line.  That can only mean one thing: Sharp Practice will be released on St George’s Day later this month and we are now taking advanced order.

And what spankingly good advanced orders we have for you too.  You can, of course, get the rule set on its own, but there are also five bundle deals which you can select from which provide some assistance when playing the game.  Let’s take a look at what these bundles contain.

  1.  The rules.  Its a 120 page book which contains the rules and Army Lists for five different conflicts.  These are the French Indian War, the AWI, Peninsular War, ACW and Indian Mutiny.  However, the rules won’t stop there.   We have lost of other periods ready as free downloadable Army lists covering stuff like Garibaldi in Italy, Napoleonic warfare, Revolutionary Wars in Italy, US Mexican Wars and a whole host of other exciting stuff.
  2. The Cards or Poker Chips. You can choose whether you want to use a card deck or pull chips from a bag or cup.  It’s entirely up to you which you use.  You will need ONE set or cards or chips to play a game.  You do not need one per player.  The poker chip set are 34 tokens in engraved MDF which are very easy to paint up and look superb when they are done.  The cards are a proper poker standard set with rounded corners and come in a tuck box.  As it happens we got 40 cards to a deck as this suited the printer card sizes so the card deck is slightly larger.
  3. Game Tokens.  A set of 18 acrylic tokens to indicate when units Present (ready to fire a controlled volley), when they are firing an uncontrolled volley and when they are broken.  We have played many many games and this set of 18 tokens have been all we needed for any game situation.  No need to duplicate unless you are really going to push the boat out on game size.

We will be posting photos of all of the items as they arrive from suppliers, for now you’ll have to trust us as to the fact that they are all designed for purpose and rather swish.  Here’s the bundles in detail.

    I’ve been waiting for this since the first talk of SP2 awhile ago. I have a few questions concerning the bundle deals; Not all bundle deals offer the bonus cards, is this something needed for game play? What about the chips and tokens…also are these needed for game play? Don’t want buy one bundle offer and find I’m short something to get a game rolling or the opposite, buy the Bundle 5 and realized I don’t really need the chips, tokens or the cards. Thanks.

  4. Matt says:

    Bundle 5 ordered, can’t wait for the 23rd! It will not be a sociable weekend, I think…

  5. Big Rich says:

    Greg, you need a game deck. Now, that can be a deck of cards, or it can be a “deck” of the Poker Chips. The cards are full colour, poker quality, the Chips are MDF and you’ll need to put some paint on them, but it is easily done.

    Hope that helps.

  6. Big Rich says:

    I’ve got the lists all ready for release. I’m thinking about a Garibaldi mini-campaign en route to Palermo too.

  7. Sean says:

  8. Dougie Robinson says:

  9. Big Rich says:

    Hi Dougie. Fear not, Fighting Season is very much on the menu for this year.
