May Game Night 2012

Last Friday night was our monthly club game night. To the left you can see my friend Charlie giving me the highly coveted 'Sirius Cup'. This is a small travelling trophy that we'll be using to commemorate the winner of our series of Field of Glory round-robin games. I'm not sure how I deserved the cup with Charlie, Mike and I all ending up 2-1. Maybe they awarded it to me for hosting the games, or maybe there were tie breakers for battle groups destroyed involved. We're all smiling because it's all in good fun. Hopefully after our Punic War campaign we can have another round of games and I can pass the cup off to the next winner.

 There were three great games run at game night. I played in Charlie's American Civil War game. The rules were the Carnage & Glory computer moderated rules. The scenario was the battle of First Winchester 25 May, 1862. Kevin and I were the attacking Union force and opposing us were the two Johns shown to the left. The combat arm of choice in this game was artillery on both sides. The confederate batteries punished Kevin's attacking infantry to great effectiveness. My batteries were able to send a union battery and one infantry regiment to the rear with canister fire before the Union re-deployed on the reverse slope of their hill. At the time the game was called the Union still controlled both of their objective hills and had given our rebs enough casualties to insure a victory. The more I play C&G the more I like it. Charlie ran a great game.


The other two games were John C's Incas vs Spanish and Gordon's WWII air game using the new 15mm pre-painted planes from Axis & Allies shown below.
