When Empires Clash! - A set of rules revisited

I am not the tidiest of people, and over time I tend to 'acquire' quite a lot of 'clutter' in and around my work area in our home office. As a result, several times each year I have to have a bit of a sort out, and last night was one of those occasions.

Amongst all the odd bits of paper, magazines, books etc., I found a display folder that contained a complete manuscript of the last version of WHEN EMPIRES CLASH! Having many better things to do ... and a desire to avoid doing them ... I re-read these rules ... and I was surprised to see how much about them I had forgotten.

What also surprised me was the fact that some of the things that I have been thinking about including in my latest version of Joseph Morschauser's rules were already in WHEN EMPIRES CLASH! ... and worked. Now I cannot lift whole sections from one set of rules into the other but ... there is certainly room for some melding of the two sets of rules.

All this will give me something to think about on my drive to and from work, so you never know what might happen as a result of this serendipitous find.

  1. Why can't you lift sections from one set of rules and put them into another?

    Everyone does that!

  2. Trebian,

    And it is actually what I am doing (well, sort of) ... although they do need a bit of re-writing in order that they make sense.

    All the best,

    Bob
