With daughter #1 returning home for a stay while in between house moves, the house has been quite active with four additional people and a dog. Since the game room is in the basement and the game table must be passed on the way to the downstairs bedroom suite where they were staying, I saw some growing interest from her fiance as he looked over the table having an ECW battle on display.
Finally having some free time one evening, I suggested we give a light wargame a try. I suggested an Ancients battle with blocks and he agreed. I pulled out CC: Ancients, removed the boxes of blocks, and unfolded the map. Already he was impressed. We selected the first battle in the scenario book, Bagradas, and deployed the troops. He really enjoyed the look of the game and mentioned that it a wonder that he has not heard of this series. He chose to take the Carthaginians in Game 1. Anyway, on to the real test.
