Oda - Ken Dunn
Anti-Oda - Darryl Lundy
Ken volunteered to match himself against me as there was an uneven number of players for AMDT. We both confessed to never having played this game before, and Ken graciously gave me first pick of sides - I picked Ant-Od becuase they appeared to have more toys to play with.
Oda is up first, and Nobunaga moves in to attack the Asakura in Echizen Fuchu, and wipes out 6 Asakura for no losses. Then he pulls the Nobunaga chit, and follows up with Nobunaga piling into Kianosho to crush the remnants of the last attack - killing 3 more Asakura.
Then end of turn - no moves for me.
Nobunaga up first, and he sieges the Asakura home. Then the Miyoshi foolishly attack Ibraki and get themselves completely wiped out. Then its the Azais turn, and they try to cut of Nobuanga by attacking then beseiging Kangasaki. Then the Ikko-Iki beseige attack Ibraki
Oda is up again, and takes Sawayama and Yokoyama and besieges Odani and the Rokaku. The Azai move back and relieve the Odani siege.
The Azai move again and besiege Yokoyama. Then the Oda move and besiege and conquer Mt Hiei. The enraged Takeda clan enter the game immediately as a result.
Nobunaga then moves down and relives the Ibraki siege.
We made an error at this point and only brought the Takeda onto the map at the rate of 2 units per turn, rather than all of them immediately.
The Asakura start the process of reconquered their territory by besieging Kitanosho (now that Nobunaga is down at Ibraki, things are relatively safe for the Asakura). Takeda besieges Kaniyama and the Ikko-Ikki besiege Mt Shigi. Oba then wipes out the Rokaku clan.
Then the big one - Nobunaga moves his bg stack into besieging ther Ikki-Ikko stronghold at Ishyama, and gets most of his force killed.
The reconstituted Miyoshi again event out and attack Ibraki, getting themselves all killed again.
Unfortunately at this point I lost my log file, but basically what happened next is the Ikko-Ikki counter-attacked at Ishyama and amnaged to kill Nobunaga outright. We debated if this was an automatic victory for the Anti-Oda and decided that the 10 turn scenario doesn't mention this, so we carried on.
For two more turns the Asakura, Azai, Ikko-Ikki and Takeda all nibbled away at the Oda from every direction without any retaliation from teh Oda remnants.
Ken resigned at this point.
Despite the rules errors we made, I think this game has heaps of replayability, and would love to try it again and see how the Oda get on if they manage to wipe out the Azai and Asakura early (and not attack Ischyama).
