Here're links for all posts about the 2022 Art de la Guerre (ADLG) survey along with a pdf compilation:

Here's a taster from Parts 1-3:

I hope you've found the 2022 survey of interest? I certainly enjoyed doing it. It's surprising what a few simple questions can uncover.

ADLG: 2022 Survey Results (Part 3)

 To recap: this survey was run to uncover the reasons (if any) behind the popularity of ADLG in the UK in 2022 compared to 2018.  The 2022 survey had 113 responses of which 79 were from the UK which compared well to the 2018 survey which has 135 responses of which 81 were from the UK.

Part 1 looked at the basic information like age, favourite periods, etc and uncovered some interesting trends

Part 2 looked at players' scores for the game overall, the rule book and the use of the rules in games amongst other things.  This report includes a comparison of the scores of casual and competitor subgroups

This post looks at the differences and trends between 2018 and 2022.

As the focus of the survey was primarily on ADLG in the UK this part deals exclusively with the UK data.

ADLG: 2022 Survey Results (Part 1)

Firstly, I'd like to thank everyone who took the 2022 ADLG survey both in the UK and elsewhere. My thanks also go to Tim Porter, Chris Tofalos & Dave Hollin (of the Society of Ancients) for their help in publicising the survey.

Our combined efforts have made the 2022 Art de la Guerre (ADLG) survey a great success with 113 responses of which 79 were from the UK. To record the results I plan to split them into three parts:

  • Basic information like age, favourite periods, etc. 
  • People's views on the rule book and the use of the rules in games. 
  • Comparison with the ADLG survey of 2018.

I wanted to repeat the survey because it's been almost a year since the release of version 4 of Art de la Guerre (ADLG) and because the UK competition circuit has fully re-opened after the Covid19 pandemic.

My main hope was that the new survey would show if things had changed and if so by how much.
