This was really a chance for players to try the rules more than any sort of carefully thought out scenario. Had no idea how many players to plan for, really only expected four so had to pinch it. Honors ended up with the British but a few more turns might have turned things around. We did have a 12 year old young lady who got a kick out of helping to set up the terrain but decided not to stick around when she was advised she'd had her share of the treats on hand (a bit more, you might guess).
Seems like everyone had a good time and the rules continue to impress with how easy they are and how well they work. Pretty much all problems stemmed from game master error (yes, that would be me). But all in all a successful day.
And, again, my thanks to all the guys who turned out for the game.
For the next couple of months, though, gaming goes in hibernation while facing the Big Holidays and cold season for my wife's orchids. Also need to put more time into my model railroad project for a while. But stay tuned for more. Just not soon, maybe.
