17th December Games


We were rather thin on the ground this week - due no doubt to seasonal panics etc. My thanks to Steve for running his traditional Lost World adventure game, giving me the chance to inflict my own special brand of mayhem as the BeastMaster. Image of Old One-Eye (below) about to wreck havoc.

We go into Yuletide hibernation until 7/1/15, so give some thought to what games you might want to play then. As ever my best wishes to one and all for Christmas and the New Year, and may your Christmas be what ever colour you feel appropriate

3rd December Games

Thanks to Andy for running a pirates game using the new 'On the seven seas' rules by Osprey. When read through properly and tweaked it should make a good club night game.

The scenario played was a simple raid by the pirates into a Spanish held town, with the Spanish troops hiding in ambush in the town houses, although ambush turned out to be the wrong word for what actually happened, with one group of Spanish running away before the first shot of the game had even been fired. While two units of Spanish did put up a spirited defense of their town, killing a few of the pirates, it was all too little and too late with the pirates making off with some treasure and supplies and winning the game.
