Well, that particular thing is due to the adjacent reinforcements, not due to the attack style...

I think the idea is good. I have a variant of the idea under the topic "Restricted Reinforcement". People have expressed various concerns which I don't see, and I think if this option or mine is introduced it will be easy to see that these games will have their own unique tactical considerations, based upon much more realistic force movement options. Deployment and maneuver of forces is so critical in strategic planning, it's a shame that the game system we use utilizes an impossible movement system that no real army can duplicate. No German Blitzkreig, no American "shock and awe" ever utilized movement where embattled forces could move farther and faster than non-embattled forces.

The adjacent attacks escalating game is one of the most interesting I have ever played. I thought it might be boring since it is so easy to protect people. Over protection could just lead to a stale mate and a build game with escalating cards.

The great part is that since protecting people is extremely easy, you don't even need to block. A person can protect themselves by attacking a single territory to escape their foe. And you can even let someone else take a player out, because they won't be able to continue and conquer the whole map on one turn. It's been a great setting so far.

The escalating game has actually turned out very well so far... at first, it seemed like we'd never kill off all the armies we were getting from spoils, but now we've actually eliminated 3, almost 4 of the players, and the final showdown should be fairly dynamic. This is a totally valid and fun play setting... definitely not a weakness, like I thought it might be.

Ditocoaf wrote:This seems like a good option... I would definitely try a few games, and if there's a good possibility I'd like it and keep playing. It'd be a much slower game, but people already play no-cards adjacent, so that's not really an issue. It would require radically different strategies, which is why I like it so much. You could watch a group of armies advancing turn by turn. You couldn't take an area just by amassing one huge centralized force, instead it would be smarter to attack on all sides, to avoid counter-attacks... it might be more realistic in that respect.

A very emphatic yes to this idea.
YES, for all the reasons you stated. Especialy the part about it being more realistic. More like the kind of ''RISK'' they play in the war rooms. A slow motion race, where you can see everything coming. Now if you could manage a way to eliminate the dice from the game, you would have a pure form of strategic conquest. akin to ''chess''. I suppose it could be done with a mathmaticle formala that would simply take in to account the number of forces in the fight. You can even have stronger armies than others. because of various reasons such as troop freshness, or even where they are from. Some armies are just better fighters. All in all, ...it is a wonderful idea. =D> =D> =D>

FabledIntegral wrote:One person could be a dick and run though and waste so many turns before elimination. It would be absolutely terrible for escalating games. It would result in massive stalemates where strategy does NOT prevail simply because you can never benefit from killing someone, and by the time on the OFFCHANCE you're able to strategically block off someone, by the time you're ready to kill the person they will have taken enough turns to cash.

The only thing this would accomplish would be massive stalemates in escalating games if played on the classic map... you'd need large maps such as World 2.1 to make it work... where people ditch many of their other territories in order to claim a bonus.
The massive stale mates you speak of, is already the prob. you have with ''esc.'' games. The better games I think, are the no cards. The more luck you can remove from the game, the better. This option takes ''adjasent'' to the extreme. I would try it out.

lancehoch wrote:Apparently I am a douche as well. I wanted to have one more thing specified. If I attack, but do not conquer country B from country A, can I still attack from country A to country C? Also, this would needlessly extend games. I just finished a game on Doodle in two turns by running through five countries of one player and six of another. If this were implemented I would have needed more than 11 turns to make the same move. Extending a Doodle game 9 extra turns seems pointless. What would happen if this were on World 2.1?
Im confused. I thought he said the first time, newly aquired countries cant attack until the next turn. That makes sense. Like an extreme form of ''adj.'' It will make, for new strats. to ponder. Sounds cool to me.

Ditocoaf wrote:Woah... I just realized that I've completely misread this idea. I thought that it meant that you couldn't attack with a territ you just conquered... but upon re-reading, it seems that all this would do is make it so no one country can attack more than once. Which is kind of pointless, because you don't often attack multiple targets from the same country in any given turn -- you zig-zag around advancing armies to the territ you just conquered.

so my "yes" vote changes to a "no", as this would not change the game very much at all.
You dont play adj. much, do you. The strat. you mention works well with unlimited forts. which is what I normaly like to play. Adj. is part of the original hasbro rules. And plays a bit diff. Thats not bad, just diff.
