Tru’ng is the name of a new Bot System for "Fire in the Lake". It follows in the footsteps of the innovative Card-based Bot System that was first developed for "Gandhi", giving fans of "Fire in the Lake" more opportunities to get this great game to the table.
Tru’ng is quick to use and easy to implement, but is sophisticated enough to play the full "Fire in the Lake" Game. When selecting Operations and Special Activities, Cards are drawn from the Tru’ng Deck (there are 6 Cards for each "Fire in the Lake" Faction). Each Card examines the current state of the Game and selects the appropriate action for the active Faction. A single, Faction-specific Table then determines where that action will occur. The same Table is used to select spaces for Operations, Special Activities and Events, minimizing the need to flip between multiple Player Aids.
Playing against Tru’ng feels like playing against a Human Opponent. It is unpredictable yet responsive to strategic needs, it goes after its Enemies while keeping an eye on its Ally, and makes moves up to now limited to Human Players, like choosing a Limited Operation to block an Opponent’s Event. Tru’ng can take the place of a Human Player for any "Fire in the Lake" Faction, can be used with every "Fire in the Lake" Scenario, and can be used in any combination of player and non-player setups.
Note: the Tru'ng Bot works for "Fire in the Lake" only, not for the "Fall of Saigon" Expansion. The Bot in "Fall of Saigon" has to deal with the additions in that Expansion, so it only works for "Fall of Saigon".
