Dystopian Wars
« on: December 9, 2013, 03:05:56 AM »
So does anyone else play? How balanced do people find it? I fancy playing Kingdom of Britannia but Isdon't know if I'm choosing an unbalanced army (lots of moaning online).

I really want to get into it but I can't find many people in my local area who play. Any ideas how to convince people to play?

its an ok game, lots of people have problems with the exploding 6s mechanic though and it is mostly fairly balanced but some fleets stand out above the rest (yanks have lots of firepower at long and short range, are tougher and lose less dice due to less turrets).
I do run Brittania but you will have serious problems against flyers due to most your secondary weapons being torpedos and to be honest prefer my Antarctica fleet.

still one of the more fun naval games around. how to get people in I am unsure, perhaps buy 2 starter boxs for differant fleets as they are not that expensive and run some intro games.

Thanks for the reply.

Yeah I heard fliers were difficult for the KoB to cope with.

I might just buy a pair of start sets and see how it goes. That's a good idea.

would say stay away from the FSA for starters though as you may drive people away. even experienced as I am I rarely enjoy games against them even when playing the friendliest opponents as it seems an uphill struggle all the time. if you get a few involved then sure but not for starters.
