Wargames Phase of the Campaign
When two enemy corps comes within three squares on the tactical map the battle is fought on the wargames table.
The transfer from the tactical map to the wargames table is simple.
The wargames table is 6x6 foot and the scenery is arranged by using 2x2 foot scenic squares.
A template is used to identify the 9 squares of the tactical map that will make up the wargames table.
Each square on the tactical map is numbered the same as the corresponding scenic square.
The wargames table will normally have the objective in the centre of the table.
The winner will be the player who controls the most squares at the end of the game.
Each corps starts the game with the same strategic orders they had in the strategic and tactical phases of the campaign.
In a multi corps game there will always be a CinC, and he is the only one who can change the corps orders. However in a single corps game the corps commander may change his own orders.
Depending on the strategic and tactical scenario the two corps may enter from opposite ends of the table, or one corps may be already in position
At the conclusion of the wargame new strategic orders are written for the next day, depending on the outcome of the game.
We use our own wargame rules and they can be found at:
