Heretical Gaming is my blog about my gaming life; currently concentrating on a re-fight of the entire English Civil War, but with numerous discursions into battles from many different periods. The focus is on battle reports using a wide variety of rules, with the occasional rules review, book review and odd musing about the gaming and history. Most of the battles use 6mm-sized figures and vehicles, but occasionally 15mm and 28mm figures appear too.

The 10x10 Challenge

Inspired by the "Six-by-Six" challenge on Kaptain Kobold's blog, I'm going to have a go at the full hardcore boardgame geek challenge: rules of the challenge are here.

The list is here, but to summarize:


Polemos Napoleonics

Polemos SPQR

Polemos ECW

Nuts! Final Version

WRG 1925-1950

Wargaming: An Introduction (plus I am including "Simplicity in Practice" from Battlegames 23 here)

Lone Wolf gamebooks




Wish me luck!  A lot of the wargaming rules should tie into various campaigns, which I am hoping will provide the inspiration for a lot of the games.


  1. Congratulations on going the whole way with the challenge. Good luck!

  2. Thanks! It was trickier than I had thought to make the list. I don't necessarily think of myself as having lots of games, but I could easily have made a second XI without a single game overlapping this list. The hardest one I think was whether to include DBA and Wargaming: An Introduction or Ancient & Medieval Wargaming instead. I went for the wider variety, but I wonder how I will feel about this choice later.
