To the Strongest

Athens wrestlers – Prizma Gothic filter

My wargaming continues on the virtual tabletop – most recently & successfully with Table Top Simulator playing in the To The Strongest 1066 tournament.

For those not familiar with To the Strongest – it is a British rule set published in 2015 – covering ancient through medieval wargaming. This game is a played on a grid, uses playing cards instead of dice, and very well suited to Table Top Simulator.

I’ve played a bit of To the Strongest on the physical tabletop, struggled with some of the basic concepts, and wrestled with army lists that assume some basic knowledge of the rules. All difficult points when learning a game. Settling into the 1066 tournament with group of seasoned players was a challenge. Falling back on my go to strategy of creating reference materials I refined the quick reference sheet for clarity & made reference materials out of the army lists themselves.

A Clark TTS QRS & 1066 Army Lists, hope they provide you with a way to explore To the Strongest as well.

Post script – there are To the Strongest modules in development for Table Top Simulator to cover the Italian Wars & War of the Roses. So if you fancy a game in any of these eras (1066, Italian Wars, WotR) hit me up, I’ll show you the ropes.

Post post script – when I first experimented w/ To the Strongest I created to counters to replace cards, they are also available for download.

Update – September 14

Have pulled together an introduction to virtual wargaming with To the Strongest using Tabletop Simulator: TTS on TTS. Hope it will inspire some to try miniature wargaming in a virtual space.
