Actually, PACG is a standalone game and the adventure path is included in the adventure packs.Failed RRTC (Resist RPG Task Check). Just bought Pathfinder Rise of the Runelords card game. Curse you Robin!
Luckily(?) I have the PDFs of the original Adventure Path stashed away somewhere too. Just need to make my Search dr.
No prob, I'll just go say fifty Richard Dawkins now... ;-)Sorry to have led you to succumb to temptation
Well, even as an atheist, one could really find better a reference of sound thinking - man, the guy is so poor at biblical exegesis...No prob, I'll just go say fifty Richard Dawkins now... ;-)
Be conscious that PACG is not a RPG.I've been toying with getting into Pathfinder RPG for some years now and have a bunch of the stuff from when it first came out, including most of the core books as free beta PDFs. Just never have as it is nearly impossible to get a regular gaming group together given time commitments of folks and the like (hard enough to get regular ASL in). Still, a boy can dream. And PF card game has the advantage, as you mentioned, of being designed for solo games as well. Your review, and several others I have seen, have all been glowing, looking forward to trying it out.

After having read his "God's Delusion" I was sighing : "Send us worthy enemies, not guys with half-baked, worn out arguments..."

But it sets up and plays fast, and you keep the character progression and feel of the kill/loot thing.
I fits what I was looking for, but I presume that other people won't like it.
Note that there is another basic game + adventures about to come out, along a path of pirate adventures - partly compatible (at least when it comes to the characters) with the present game.
I just replayed Command and Colours : Ancients yesterday.
I had a blast playing Marathon.
Greeks won by an edge (6 banners vs 5 banners for the Persians).
It is a simple, fast game, that nevertheless gives you the feel of the battle.
I should take it more often down from its shelf...
No. They are the Richard Borg's sytem (cf. Memoir 44 and Battlelore).Are the rules to that system based on GMT's Great Battles of History series, and scaled down/simplified Robin do you know? If I could find the core ancients set around at a reasonable price I might pick it up, but all that seems to be in stores around here are the expansions and the Napoleonic stuff (not interested in the latter).
Another vote for Splendor. Played it at club meeting thi s past Saturday, along with Keltic, Family Business, and Fleet card game.I ordered Splendor after playing it at our First Minnesota Boardgaming Group. A fun, fast 2-4 player card and chip game. Easy to learn and can be played in less than an hour. Great filler for when you are waiting for someone else to finish a game or arrive to play.
Ta, rep gun empty.No. They are the Richard Borg's sytem (cf. Memoir 44 and Battlelore).
Much simpler than GBoH, but very well adapted to Ancients warfare.
I find that you get the feel of the battle without the clutter of counters of the GBoH system - and the battles play fast (30' to an hour).
The basic box (Romans/Carthaginians) is available : https://www.gmtgames.com/p-373-commands-colors-ancients-4th-printing.aspx as well as the Greek/Eastern expansion : https://www.gmtgames.com/p-393-c-c-ancients-exp-1-greece-the-eastern-kingdoms-reprint.aspx
Can't rep you but I concur, although I would place GBoH in a dead heat with the Fighting Wings series of games from Clash of Arms for second place.I have GMT's Hoplite on pre-order with SCG who should be getting it in this week. So sometime next week before I get it. I did download and read the rules and playbook (scenarios). It looks like Hoplite and Chariots of Fire are the easiest way to get into GBoH, some simplifications with loosing the flavour. Of course the Simple variants (SGBoH) are included in the box. I regard GBoH as second only to ASL.
