What is a Supercampaign?
It's like a normal campaign, a series of linked battles played out on a map. But we blur the lines with roleplaying - orders have to be written and troops moved around a master campaign map in real time. Not using 'nodes' or 'pins', we really do work out how far the men march and how many miles they're spread out over! There are secret notes, orders, couriers and subterfuges that make for a gripping campaign season. Our most recent Supercampaign was the American Civil War one.
What's this Supercampaign all about?
Some might remember our recent trips to the National Civil War Centre - our gaming group are all from Newark in the UK, which was a Royalist stronghold during the Civil War. This campaign saw us playing out the Third Siege, which lasted from late 1645 to the end of the war the following year.
