    No movement yet - and only 9 hours before the Swedes win by default!

    Here's a little teaser for your enjoyment:

      I'd likely join anyone of them if I'm around at the time, but I'll put a vote in for a Waterloo campaign for sports -

        30 years war, since it is way under presented in every media and form. Then Gettysburg of course, and Russian civil war for the same reason as 30 years war.

        Could actually help with thirty years war. Some 15 years ago I used to run an RPG on it. Well, until it died like they all do because of the complexity.

          I'm cool with the 30years war, Gettysburg or Russian civil war.

            Well that's a turn-up for the books - the Russian Civil War has pulled ahead once more, at the last minute!

            Thanks very much for your interest and support everyone. Since more votes are coming in I'll give it another day until one side or the other pulls ahead by two... or if the votes stay the same, the highest count wins.

              Subtracting my vote from the RCW. I really would love to play a 30 Years War scenario.

                Jean kindly pointed out that the RCW now has a decisive 1-2 vote lead (depending on how we count Del's preference).

                I can't do anything about this until I get home from work (in around six hours), but if the votes haven't moved in that time I'll probably take that as a result.

                Many thanks for your interest, gentlemen

                  True to my word, I withdraw my vote for RCW.

                    Trial by Music indeed - for a game without music is a game not worth having.

                    With Tac and Del revoking their votes for RCW, the polls are tied at 8 each - and as implied, I have indicated I'd break the tie with a purely objective trawl through youTube to determine whether I could find more period music from the Russian Civil War or the Thirty Years War. Partly for background while updating, and partly (as those of you who've played ACW with me before know) because I do enjoy sprinkling it in-thread to get everyone into the proper feeling.

                    I'll report back in half an hour or so with my findings...

                        Reporting Back

                        The winner of the tiebreak, by overwhelming (musical) majority, is the 30 Years War!

                        I can find a fair amount of period (and plausibly period) music for the Reds, but almost nothing for the Whites. While in the other period, well...

                          Continuing a little bit off top regarding music of Whites - basically their music was traditional old Russian songs, Reds came with new ones.

                            Thanks mate - now I want to run RCW even more

                            It'll be a strong contender for next time around, once this has been drawn to a (successful!) close.

                              So what we're saying is the Russian civil war won yesterday, but lost today because a war that lasted 30 years has more music. Makes sense.

                                RCW and 30 Years War tied. Tac and I both withdrew our votes for the Russian Civil War option. That left it a tie again.
