April 2014 Game Night

Last Friday was our club's monthly game night. I played in a Carnage and Glory game of the battle of Walcourt, which was the first battle of the 9 years war. The game was run by my friend Greg (pictured left). C&G is a great system for new players as the computer handles a lot of the record keeping for the players. I was helping my friend Phil learn the rules. He was the right wing commander of the allied army. While the French artillery picked his command out for their devastating initial bombardments, he weathered the storm and counter attacked successfully with both his cavalry and the Coldstream Guards keeping the French from capturing the town of Walcourt. 

The other two games were a large ACW naval game run by my friend George using his
home brew rules, and my friend Mark's modern skirmish game which also used home brew rules. The club as a whole is having a flurry of creativity with no less than six of us working on or having recently completed our own rule systems - all of them enjoyable to play.
