Bloody Big Balkan Battles: Playtests Ongoing

 I decided to take a chance to inform you all about the progress with the Bloody Big Balkan Battles (BBB) project. Right now I am in the play-testing period, with help from Chris Pringle. Our goal is to make sure each of the scenario gets play-tested twice and if possible more times. Right now the situation is as follows

working...




Sarantaporo: 2 Playtests (Chris Pringle)
Dioran: 3 Playtests (Me)
Kilkis-Lahana: 2 Playtests (Me)
Lule-Burgs: 2 Playtests (Me)-> needs a 3rd
Kirkkilise: 2 Playtests (Chris Pringle)
Chataldja: 1 Playtest (Me)
Prilep: 1 Playtest (Me)
Yiannitsa: 0
Bizani: 0
Kumanovo: 0
Monastir: 0
Breglanitza: 0
Kalimanchi: 0
Kresna Gorge :0
Secret non-Scenario Project: 0

Thus 50% of scenarios have been playtested once, and 1/3rd twice. My hope is that I finish the play-tests by Fall 2017. However, this is highly unlikely. At the maximum I would like to be done by Winter 2017. We will see.

One of the goals of the playtests is to also show people that as long as you have the proper tools (which can be very cheap) you can represent the complex Balkan terrain.

Dioran 1913





Kilkis-Lahana 1913



 Lule Burgas 1913 ( the hills are for aesthetic reasons, the scenario map does not require them as it takes care of their effect via a scenario rule)




 Chataldja 1912





Prilep 1912
