Hi,
I'm looking for recommendations on which scenarios represent the best of the series/most exciting/balanced. With kids and such, I don't have much time to for gaming anymore and want to get the most of limited gaming get togethers.

I have all the expansions so am open to any suggestion. They just never got to the table due to our initial poor experience with the game when we tried the first few scenarios. maybe it was learning as it was our first CNC game, but it was a slog and we did not enjoy it.

However since then we've played nearly all of Borg's CNC sets and love all of them -- ok maybe not the abaddon game. So we're not looking for beginner/intro scenarios but those that are worth trying out to revisit the game.

thanks for any suggestions!

It's all subjective of course but I find the Scottish Wars scenarios are popular choices, especially Dupplin Moor and Neville's Cross. In terms of balance, it can be a challenge for the Scots in both scenarios, but it helps to have clearly defined roles for each player (i.e. one player fires as many arrows as they can while other desperately tries to close to melee range). Best part is the medieval lore rules which I personally prefer over the original war council rules. You may want to keep the Dwarves in the scenario or substitute them for conventional units, which is what we do. Fantasy units are great but we like to keep them out of the historical stuff.

Great! Thanks, we'll start with those.

I'll check out the tourney threads to see if I can glean any more reco's from there.
