ADLG: 2022 Survey Results (Part 2)

 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 survey had 113 responses of which 79 were from the UK.

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

This post will look at players' scores for the game overall, the rule book and the use of the rules in games amongst other things.

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.

ADLG: Another Quick Survey

When I looked at the statistics for this blog I noticed that my 2018 ADLG survey had experienced a recent spike in popularity.

This set me thinking.  It's been almost a year since the release of version 4 of Art de la Guerre (ADLG) and the UK competition circuit has fully re-opened after the Covid19 pandemic.

So I thought wouldn't it be good to re-run the 2018 survey and see if things had changed and if so to what extent.

15 mm Confused General (Resin 3D Print)

Sometime ago I stumbled across a free STL file for the "Confused General" from the cover of the De Bellis Antiquitatis (DBA) rules.

Thanks to fellow Lance & Longbow Society member Will McNally I now have half a dozen 15 mm resin prints.  I'm grateful to Will for finding time to print these amongst his busy printing schedule.
