Anyway, the game flowed very well and had a great feel to it. Basically, the game starts by creating a card deck by adding an officer card per side, unit cards and event cards. The deck is then shuffled and the first card is turned, indicating which unit type on which side is activated and how many actions those units may make. This continues until all the cards are used or the optional rule is applied, where a turn ends after the third event card has been drawn. I would advise anyone playing to use the optional rule. It adds a little more tension.
Each event card that s turned requires a roll on an event table. These range from a weather change to a duel or a Morale test. In order to fire at an enemy, a figure must be able to spot the enemy. This does not re;y on a dice roll, but a chart which shows a number of distances arranged in columns for set circumstances.
Shooting is by dice roll and casualties force morale checks. When a side is reduced to half srength, a morale card is added to the deck. When this is drawn, all units for the relevant side must take a test.
A very good game, which I lost because of poor dice rolls. We are definitely going to play more of this, though it will be after Triples now, which is only next weekend. We (Sheffield and Rotherham Wargames Club) are puttting on a Vietnam game and a Zombies game, both in 20mm. Should be fun! If anyone is going to Triples be sure to pop over and say hello! I'll be wearing my Tufty Club badge!
