Balkan Wars news
I taught BBB to a new player using my Prilep scenario. He got the gist of it and seemed to like it. I did make sure to explain and stress the level of abstraction inherent in BBB. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to play more than 5 turns and 1 NI. So he got the full rules but I did not get my 2nd playstest for Prilep :(. I still think the end result would be a Serbian draw or defeat. But it should be done again. Unfortunately, absent help from other playstesting groups (beyond the ever helpful Chris) I just do not think I will be able to complete the play-tests in 2017. Thus a potential publication is moving to 2019. I apologize to everybody.

But because of travels and other commitments I don't think I will get another Balkan Wars game in until November. :-(
But when I do I know it will be good! :-)

your scenarios.. ( using FPW minis as proxies )
But I'm not really sure we will have some spare time...
