Field Commander Napoleon - 1798

I have had Field Commander Napoleon for two years, but it hadn't been played.  But I had a gap in my schedule, so I broke it out.  And what a fun system.  Napoleon won, but he made a few blunders -- so only a marginal victory.  But I am ready for the next game now!!!

Fate of a Nation

My first play of the V4 FOW rules.  Mostly I like the rules.  But the morale rules are broken -- big units fight to the death even if they have bad morale.

The scenario was the sample scenario with the castle on the web site for FOW.  It looks impossible for the Israeli's to win -- and I think it is.  We played the variant where each side has two units off table -- this hampers the Egyptians more than the Israelis.  And I had phenomenal dice -- I couldn't stop rolling sixes.  But I still couldn't kill enough Egyptians.

I will play V4 again -- but with the V3 morale test rules!

Imperial Assault - Twin Shadows - End of the Campaign

It was close, but this time the rebels got a win.  Only one Rebel wasn't wounded -- so the game could have gone either way!

Wolf Nipples

OK -- you had to be there.  A humorous discussion on the artistic depiction of Egyptian Gods.

We played Kemet, which at first I didn't like, but I grew to love.  Highly recommended.

Root

My first time playing Root.  As usual, totally misplayed my faction.  But what an interesting game!

How not to Charterstone

I couldn't play last month, so Cassie played for me.  She left me a fantastic starting setup, and I totally underappreciated it.  Net result is I came way down in the pack!
