Trebia in miniature with Lost Battles. Video reports.

I recently played through a couple of refights of Trebia using Lost Battles, with the idea being to video the games as pseudo-instructional efforts.

I gave it two goes, and while the second effort is far superior to the first, it's still very long, and contains a mistake which, although not game-breaking, got me annoyed with myself.  Given the number of times I've played the system you'd think I'd be able to count correctly!   Grrrr! 

Still, it's too much of a mission to remake it again just on account of that, so I've posted it, error and all.

I daresay that my droning voice and ubiquitous use of 'so' as a transitional tool will drive any viewers up the wall, but I'll put the videos up here anyway.  Feel free to let me know what you think.  I have plenty of soap and water to wash the filth off, so don't hold back! 

Part 1:  Introduction.

Part 2:  Deployment turn.

Part 3: Turn 2.

Part 4: Turn 3.

Part 5: Turn 4.

Part 6: Turn 5.

Part 7: Turn 6.

Part 8: Turn 7 and wrap.


  1. These videos are very helpful and the cuts showing the moves are great. It seemed to flow very nicely and played out well. Carthage was unlucky at the start. Thanks for this.

  2. Thanks for the kind words, Tone. Glad to hear the vids were of some use.
