1914 WW1 Kriegsspiel

Post  Master of Europe on Tue Jan 30, 2018 12:47 am

Ok so I’m back here after a long absence and I was thinking about running a early WW1 Western Front Kriegsspiel, it would be at the point where the German Army started to invade Belgium. I am not sure of commands and such yet but if you are interested can you post down below as that wouldn’t help me a lot.

Hey
So I’d like to have at least 4 people so every army gets a commander. We would have German, French, British and Belgian forces. I’d like to run it on the forum, perhaps in game management. Each side would get a forum and orders would get PMed to me. I haven’t really decided on objectives yet. Combat would be decided by me. I’m planning on once a week turns. So lemme know if you interested. MRM nice to meet you. If you want to command an army let me know which one you would like.

I will take the German command since Martin will probably want to be the Brit's.

Hi Bob

I am intrigued. Can you provide some more details please?

* Will the manoeuvre elements be division, corps, or army?
* Will the game cover the whole western front, or just say the area N of Verdun.
* What scale will the map be?
* Is this a hex-based game?
* Given the relative size of the armies in 1914, it looks as if the British and Belgian players would have much less to do than the French and German - is that right?
* Will there be a political element - eg what will be the command-relationship between the French, British and Belgian payers?

Hope that gives you a flavour of what I'm after Smile

Hey Martin,
1. Im planning on manoeuvre elements being armies.
2. I’m not entirely sure yet. I am still in the process of finding a map.
3. See 2
4. I hope. It all depends on the map.
5. More or less yeah. I’m trying to balance things out though.
6. Yep. The way I am planning the scenario is that there is no clear commander of the Allied forces.
MRM great! I will let you know once things start to move into place.

Edit: I think I may have found a map. http://www.gmtgames.com/1914oao/1914OaoMap1.jpg
Lemme know what you guys think.

Thanks. Do keep posting as you develop the idea.

That's a very nice looking map btw.
