Last such game was back in early October which seems an eon ago!
Played a 15mm game of Lasalle 2 with John (as normal opponent his brother Stephen recovering from a nasty infection which had him hospitalised for a period) and we decided to try Lasalle 2 as John looking to see them in action.
John choose Avant Garde scenario (first I think) from rules with an Austrian 1809 force facing my French (both smaller 250pt option).
Lasalle 2 is so very slick and easy to teach (at least using basic rules) and we both got into swing quickly.
We did however only complete 5 of scheduled 8 turns due to lots of catching up and associated waffle before we got going.
The Momentum system is excellent being easy to use and yet leading to lots of decisions to make best use thereof, and this coupled with free flowing movement and very playable shooting and combat systems, means this rule set has a lot going for it.
Not much in the way of ‘chrome’ compared to several sets (and openly designed that way) but the game is just plain fun whilst retaining a core Napoleonic ‘flavour’ and certainly high on playability/ease of understanding factor which is an aspect I find increasingly attractive (and likely why I enjoy Piquet sets so much).
John also enjoyed the rules liking the fast playing style and easy assimilation of the basic systems.
Hope to get more play with these (and try some advanced rule options) and hopefully with Stephen when recovered sufficiently.
