Rome vs Rome

Rome vs Rome

Rome vs. Rome is a new proposed game from Columbia Games by Designer Justin Thompson. Rome vs Rome brings the drama of the Roman Civil War to life. Players take control of the legions of Caesar or Pompey and fight to rule Rome as Emperor. There are two campaigns: “Crossing the Rubicon” in which Caesar faces Pompey, and “Augustus”, in which Caesar’s nephew Octavian battles with Marc Antony and Cleopatra. The map board depicts the major theatre of operations during the Roman Civil War 49BC-31BC. Visit our GamePlan preorder page and Pre-order now: Rome Map

EuroFront 2 at ConsimWorld Expo 2008



Two ‘tables’ of EuroFront2 were actively played throughout MonsterCon. The ‘newbie’ game (initially under the guidance of designer Craig Besinque) stayed “on the rails” and therefore eventually came down to the Russian steppes, where the Germans were decisively stalled in S41 well short of the historical advance. With the resulting Production advantage, the Russians pushed the Germans back to the Carpathian Line by S43, obtaining a concession shortly thereafter. The ‘grognard’ table began with a ‘prequel’ game of the Spanish Civil War, which carried through to Sept/39 without a decision (Franco held only the populated south, but enough to prevent Foreign Recognition of a Republican win). This triggered the ‘SCW Carryover’ rules and had a profound influence on the EuroFront game that followed. Under the carryover rules, the SCW continues as a sideshow (with neither power requiring National Supply) until someone Declares War on either side, whereupon the 2 sides join the Allies and Axis respectively as normal Minor Powers (which DO require National Supply).

Hammer of the Scots PBeM tournament finished

The 2006 Hammer of the Scots PBeM Tournament is in the books. We had a terrific tournament that went down to the wire. We began in the fall of 2006 and ended Jan. 20th 2008. Thirty players began the tournament. We played 28 games with the Scots winning 15 of the games including winning the majority of the games in the last round.

George Seary was able to add the PBeM Championship to his three straight WBC Titles. I believe he has been able to win most of his tourney games as the Scots. He was able to go undefeated throughout this tournament as the Scottish rebels. The perception is the Scots are the underdog in this game and it seems that the statistics do not support that position in this tourney.

The other top finishers were as follows: Suzanne Tuch, Bill O’Neal, Hank Burkhalter, Ray Freeman & Paul Barrett. I want to thank all the players and Don for the support of this event.
