Hexblitz II ... or Memoir of Modern Battle with knobs on?

In the midst of dealing with my father's future care, I have still been plugging away at drafting HEXBLITZ II. To be honest I have wasted a lot of time on this project ... but it has given me something to think about at a time when my mind needed some form of diversion.

Currently my draft looks less like HEXBLITZ and more like MEMOIR OF MODERN WAR (MOMBAT) with knobs on! I started by grafting the system for calculating a unit's strength or combat value from HEXBLITZ onto the MEMOIR OF MODERN WAR (MOMBAT) game structure. I also added the playing card tile-based Turn Sequence from my PORTABLE WARGAME: WARGAMES RULES FOR THE LATE 19TH CENTURY, and the stacking limits and support rules from OPERATIONAL ART. The resulting draft still needs some work ... but I can at least see some light at the end of the tunnel.

Although this was not what I originally set out to do, it seems to work ... and once my father is settled into his temporary care home placement I hope to play-test the completed draft.


  1. Good luck with the test, hope the knobs don't fall off!

  2. Ross Mac,

    The sooner I can run the play-test, the better I will feel (I need the wargaming 'fix'!) ... and if the knobs fall off, then they fall off!

    All the best,
