Re: Hobbes v Athena: In Blood and Fire

It seems a great shame that every time the forums are changed things get messed up with old posts. The first change led to duplicate images and the next - only the duplicates remain! :crying:

All things come to an end I suppose.

Nice one, pretty much like my Steam titles (+all other AGEOD non-Steam titles). So many good games, yet so little time. I often tell myself that I will have to play them all once I am a bit old(er) and retired :mdr: [ATTACH]39527[/ATTACH] You have great taste my friend :) P.S. you will have another...

P.S. the opposite to this sort of pricing is War in the Pacific - Admiral's Edition. £64. To me it's a wonderful but unplayable game due to the time required. I would be long dead before I completed a game but I would be very happy to pay £10 for it just to possess it and maybe play a small scenario.

My desktop at the moment. I've bought most of these games in the past few months during -75% offers or better. Most I will probably never play (and wouldn't have bought at full price). I don't have enough years left to play them all. All look pretty good though. If you get a game for £2 - £5 I think...

I was amazed by this deal. I'm on a break from AGEOD games at the moment having played them for 10 years but I couldn't resist this offer as a way of trying a few that I otherwise wouldn't have bought. I'm worried about how AGEOD and partners will benefit from this though. First game I looked at is ...

Wow. It's very heartening to see you have played it 30 times Shadow! I designed the scenario but it is very rare to get any feedback. I assumed not many people would have played it. I had no idea somebody would have played it so much!

Thanks,

I played the Strategic Command pacific game a few months ago and quite enjoyed it. There are flaws but it's not bad for at least one full game as each side.

I think the free version of Neuroshima is good. Depends how much you play it - there are some very interesting factions to be bought in the full game. I bought all as they are only about 60p each. Armies such as Neojungle and Dancer certainly add a lot of interest to the game.

One of the military options, "Issue a Scalp Bounty", says "Offer rewards for prisoners and ships". What exactly does this mean in terms of the game? I certainly don't remember any text for this event that mentions ships? I think the event makes it more likely that certain locked tribes with a leanin...

Thanks for the warning - maybe too late as I demanded 50 goods a year from them last night :blink: Another P.S.
