Back on 10 Oct 2012 Andrew Coleby and I had a go at Bob Cordery’s Portable Wargame. I didn’t write it up at the time because I was busily converting this site to WordPress. Nominally the game was for the Battle of Maipo. I like the idea of wargaming on a chess board but the rules themselves need refinement.
Bob Cordery has been developing a game for fast play, along the lines of DBA, but using a chess board for the table. He called it the Portable Wargame. More recently this morphed into a Hex based game although feedback from play testers suggest they prefer the square grid.
