Multiplayer games for 6 players?
Multiplayer games for 6 players? Posted on [06/08/2022] à 00:16

So our game club in the states (Shieldwall Gaming in Willoughby Ohio (Address: 35104 Euclid Ave, Suite 202, Willoughby, OH 44094 U.S.A. Phone number 1-440-413-5666) is hosting a convention in December.

I want to take HoN there and run a game. The Question is has anyone done a 6 player game 3 vs 3? I've read the rules for 2 vs 2 but want to be able to take as many as I can as slots in the convention schedule are limited.

I kickstarted Hon:BRO and have Omaha so I thought a nice beach storming would do the trick.

Has anyone tried a 3 vs 3 battle. Do you need a deck for everyone or can you still get away with just one on a side?

I personally never played a game with that many people in it. It would take a pretty big scenario to really make it work, so that everyone can get a reasonable number of troops to control.

The cards get odd. Maybe let every player on a side have 2 cards for their hand size? That boosts the card count per side but without getting too crazy and gives everyone a couple of cards to play with. You could perhaps give the folks on a side a chance to trade cards so that someone without a unit with Tripod could trade away a Speed Setup they don't need… but since the BRO decks have alternate bonus values, that is likely not a huge requirement.

Maybe these rules give some ideas.

Thank you Krultan, I looked up the link but the website denied me access to the files. I have sent a request for access but since they are 6 years old they may not exist any longer.

Nostradunwhich, I was thinking a Command tile and an Infantry Platoon for player 1, a Mechanized Infantry Platoon for player 2 and a Tank Platoon for player 3 on each side with heroes to fill in points if needed up to 600-750 pts per side. Everyone would have their own token set and a straightforward battle instead of scenario play. I am considering using an 8 board set up instead of 6 to allow some maneuvering room.

As far as the cards go I haven't had opportunity yet to play 2nd edition yet so how the new cards play out I don't know. My primary concern is will 1 deck between 3 players (at a 3 card hand size, say) be enough or should I combine 2 decks together and run the risk of a side top decking multiples of really good cards.
