Chain of Command Trial Game

Post by Captain Darling » Tue Mar 19, 2019 4:16 pm

We played a trial game of Chain of Command on Monday night!

We chose the patrol scenario and it was set in 1940. We had a time limit which would allow us time for coffee and rules discussion after. As we played each phase we went through the rules in detail until we became confident. The game ran smoothly (if a bit slowly early on as we checked rules several times) and was quite engrossing as each 'phase' you were challenged with how to pick our command choices. I think we got the rules pretty spot on, except for leader casualties when we automatically killed two Junior Leaders when we should have rolled for severity of the hit instead (it was one for each side so it balanced out haha).

When we stopped for our debrief the game was anybody's, the Jerries having lost two levels of morale to the Brits one Level. Next time we play CoC we will go for a full game.

Some pictures from the night;

Did you make the trial game any different than what a full game would look like? Or is that it? Regardless, it looks very interesting.

Hey Sonntag this is what a full game would look like we just put a time limit on it.

We like these rules and want to ensure we keep them in our schedule as often as we can, one guy want to have a Barbarossa campaign...

There is an option for multiple platoon CoC games but we’ll stick with the normal one, maybe once we’re fully across it we may try a bigger game with 10mm sized figures!
