I think I understand now. DOHO123 explained it to me.

Thanks

Question 1 - How did 5 come out of each when only 3 and 1 go in?
There are some armies for each player already in the tower - they get put in at the beginning - I think it's like 10 for each player and 20 farmers. Whatever falls out, falls out - the rest are there for later.

Question 2 - How did I and Nestalawe get involved?

Your cubes happened to come out of the tower - they have no effect on the battle.

Question 3 - Did I miss part of the rules?
I think you just missed part of the setup stuff. Also, jwarrend described how the cube tower works here in this thread... cubes in the tower have a 1/3 chance of falling out each time cubes are dumped in. Any cube being dumped in hasa 2/3 chance of coming out. It hinkthat's what Jeff said the ratios were.

So next time cubes are putinto the tower, anything in the cup goes with them.

Edit: Looks like Doho beat me to it.

Thanks Seth.

It was the last line of the first page of rules:
"For this purpose, 7 armies from each player and 10 neutral peasant armies are thrown at one time into the tower. The cubes that fall in the cup are placed back in player or peasant supplies"

But I didnt know the 1/3 of those in the tower and 2/3 of new ones part, that is good to know.

Thanks for the game, everyone.

I created a rematch (with advanced start positions) - check the messages section of our finished game. If you don't want to play again, please post here to let me know so I can recruit a replacement.

Aye, cheers ya'll, good intro game, now we can get into the real stuff.

The diplomacy side is a bit tricky in this format, but I will be sending smoe messages around this game, see if it slows it down much. At the moment it is very quick to login and make yer moves, but if you are waiting on replies re:diplomacy it makes things that much slower...

Anyway, bring it on!

Actually, I'm not sure I'm 100% on board with that; I'm not sure that diplomacy and deal-making are meant to be part of the game. Certainly, the rulebook takes no position on the subject.

If the rest of the group decides they want to play a diplomatic game I'll take part, but I think that it's only appropriate to make diplomatic offers if we all agree up front that this is going to be part of the game.

Yeah, I suppose I am just used to pbem games with a lot of diplomacy... I'm happy just to play 'blind' as it were, it will definately be a lot quicker!

I'll sit this one out since I'm currently in a heated game of Amun Re. One tip for all: Beware Nestalawe! :)

I don't think I want to be in 2 games at once. I think I'd probaby get them confused.

New game starting!

Ska Baron just finishing pounding me in a 2-player game and we are keen for more (well, not so keen on the me getting pounded part...)

So, anyone keen should wander along and sign up for the 'BGDF Nest Game' with password bgdf.

Open for 3, 4 or 5 players, the more the merrier, but we'll try and get it started by the weekend if we can get at least 3 players...

Ah, Nestalawe, my worthy opponent - I'll definitely have to keep my eye on you this next game. With the might of the peasants on his side he is quite the shrewd warrior. Come one, come all!

A convert!

Noobs are definately allowed ;) I haven't even played the 'physical' boardgame and I picked up how to play...

The website is at http://www.spielbyweb.com - you will need to register (all free etc) then go to 'Games List' then find our game and enter the password (bgdf).

All nice and easy, and if you haven't played before there are rules online, and we can help you out...

Come on in!

Jim,

The site is http://www.spielbyweb.com/ and while there are a few games on here (which I hope to learn), we're in on Wallenstein! There are rules for the game on the site (which I recommend printing out so you can refer to them any time in the game without accidentally losing any game info). If you want to try your hand in a big game I would be willing, or if you wanted to go one on one, i'd be more than happy to play - Just PM me(I've probably played 2-3 times on a real board a few years back, and then just finished my first online game with Nest).

Wallenstein is a GREAT game IMHO. =)

EDIT: Obviously it's great... just look how desperate Nest and I are to start up another game.

I also just read the rules for Hoity Toity and it looks pretty cool. Come jion in and learn along with me if you're interested. The game is "First time playing" and there's no password. Auction fun time!

Thanks guys, I will check it out. Hopefully my work firewall won't cause trouble. If it does - I may be relegated to evening only moves... :(

I'm trying to find some time to at least read the game rules once. If I succeed and there's still room, I'll let you guys know. Otherwise, it's going to be next time.

I totally agree, but I don't have even the faintest idea about how to play this game, I've just heard lots of comments about it's famous dice tower. Today's a complicated day (loads of work) but I'll probably find some free time tomorrow to give the rules a glance and jump in to the game.
