Description Edit | History

In Field Command each player controls an army of 40 units comprised of Artillery, Cavalry, Infantry, a General, and Guerillas. Cavalry and Infantry are divided into 3 ranks, denoted by a triangle, a circle, or a square. The battlefield is an 11x11 grid which contains forests and plains across 3 levels of elevation. Players can move up to 12 units per turn and movement is simultaneous. Battle is resolved with a rock-paper-scissors system which is modified by both rank and terrain. The goal of the game is to remove the other player's general from the battlefield.

2 Play By Email Aid - North Army [A-F] [REVISED]
Word document used for sending an opponent your starting setup for Field Command. After that, the template can be used to also send you 12 moves / day. Replace the "S"'s in the battlefield grid with your starting setup using the legend just below the grid for your general [GEN], cavalry [CAV], artillery[ART], infantry[INF] and Guerillas [GRL]. Once complete, save the document and send to your opponent who can set it up on their board at home. Your opponent will send you the South Army [F-K] document to setup. After you swap starting setups, you can use this document to also send your 12 moves / day. Condensed rules and table for combat attached. Terrain levels are denoted by small a1, a2, a3 in the grid. Hope this helps out!
