The new rules
« on: January 09, 2017, 10:25:19 AM »
I see that the PP team has been busy, and has recently posted up a summary of the soon-to-be-released new rules here:

And a first video of a complete "new MOCB" turn (i.e. both VC + US action seuqueces) in the middle of a game, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5NxQZWErhg

Which is one of a number of PP videos that I'd not previously paid sufficient attention to here: http://www.peterpig.co.uk/videos%20of%20game%20mechanisms.html

It was nice to see some updated PP terrain (those bamboo look rather nice on their watery scenic bases), and Martin provides some very useful ongoing questioning of the players to clarify what they're doing, why and what dice scores they need to achieve it.

The high point for me was Stewart's explanation of a VC base's demise being due to their having "got in the way of a bullet". I believe that the rules may provide a little more clarity on that one. However, this will probably not include an evade action being described as "running away like a girlie" [same culprit, I believe?].

Anyway if you want a feel for some of the new mechanisms (many of which seem to be likely to be cropping up in the next revision of the SCW BAIT rules) and how quickly it all rattles along, you could do worse then investing just under 13 minutes watching this nice little video.

All the Peter Pig video clips are well worth watching.

Yup - I was pleasantly surprised to see how many of them there already are.

A very modern way to be engaging with one's audience - may it continue!

The structured introduction to the rulebook and subsequent key activities in the Regiment of Foote section [similar ones also exist for PBI] are particularly well done and easy to follow.

Let's hope for a similar set of informative bite-sized guides once the MOCB rules are out (can't be long now...).

There is now a pre-order deal on the new rules [13.50 instead of 17.50] advertised about half-way down the Peter Pig home page:

http://www.peterpig.co.uk/index.html

It appears from the rules ordering section:

http://www.peterpig.co.uk/rules.html

that this offer is available until 4th February (i.e. until before 5th February!).
