Approaching armies rarely have the same formations. In Regimental Chess, your formations change from game to game and differ between opponents. There are advantages and disadvantages, strengths and weaknesses. You can take the time to set up your armies any way you want, or, to save time, you can let the computer instantly set up your armies for you in random fashion. No matter how the formations are dealt, victory or defeat depends on the players’ abilities to know when and where to attack, how to form and fight with their regiments and battalions, and how to reach deeply within and find their own brutal intellect.
