BBB December 2016 Sessions

Over the last three weeks I had a number of BBB games. The first was Montebello with Mehmet and Kerem, and the second two sessions of Domokos with the guys at the facebook group "Diavivastis".

The Data of Bloody Big Battles

If you follow this blog you know I am very big fan of Chris Pingle's Bloody Big Battles rules. So much a fan that I have written scenarios for them. After a discussion at the Yahoo Group about scenario balance, I decided to collect data on plays of scenarios and too look up indicators of balance. After a couple of weeks I got responses on 131 plays of 46 BBB Scenarios.



For each scenario I noted the following information
Plays: How many times was it played in my data
Historical Victor Won: Did the play result in a victory for the combatant who won in history?
Draw: Did the play result in a Draw? In BBB Draws in the scenario rules represent the historical outcome.
Historical Defeated Won: Did the play result in a victory for the combatant who lost in history?
