The British Army Tactical Wargame

Post  hammurabi70 on Tue Mar 29, 2011 12:40 am

The British Army's take on operational wargaming from it's OR experience in WWII and Korea. It uses a "kriegsspiel" format with a central umpire (controller) to implement the rules and feed relevant information to two sets of players. The umpire is there to provide information and implement the rules, not make his own assessments.

It works with orders given on an hourly basis to units on a 1:50,000 scale map or terrain model. Units are armour, infantry, artillery and engineers in battalion squadron and regimental sized units that operate, broadly, in 2km map squares. Combat resolution is probability driven and focusses on the need for TIME to plan co-ordinated assaults in attack or increase defence strength by preparing and digging in.


Anyone tried these or know anything of them?

Not much unfortunately. I've read some positive commentary on them from Martin Rapier, and I think there is a report on them in Nugget #216 according to my last Google search. I've kind of been wanting to find out more about them myself before plunking down the $$$ for a copy. Cash is tight and I've got enough games that don't get played as it is Neutral

Hello,
I have recently purchased this document and I am quite pleased with it. I am also interested in running a PBEM using these rules for WW2 East Front. I have never participated in a Kreigspiel game so I am on a steep learning curve with this. If you have any specific questions about the rules I will gladly try to help, without infringing on copyright of course.

Maybe trying to run a simple game with them would be a good start. Cool

Simple game is good advice, I have also been reading anything I can about building a scenario and running a game.

Cheers

Well I am keen to learn more and would want to put this on my to-do list but there is always so much on it. I have been looking for the right system for my Desert PBEM that is long delayed.
