Re: Armoured vehicle forced off table

One simple solution to this involves the 6” deployment rule for vehicles.A regular vehicle deploys within 6” of the entry point. What does that actually mean? 6” in? What if you have , say, a Churchill that’s more than 6” long? If you deploy so the REAR of the vehicle is 6” on table, then the forced...

Re: Forests vs Orchards

Re: Any Big CoC campaigns?

I’ve run lots of multi player Big CoC as 3 or 4 linked games overa weekend. dbsubashi makes some good points - one thing we always have is an umpire (me, normally), and this obviates a lot of potential issues, you can keep the game moving and the players focused, I think it could be that because the...
