Play Testing Some New Rules at HAWKs Night

Buck

At last Friday’s HAWKs night we play tested a set of rules under development by Lee Sowers and Allen Kaplan in New Jersey.  The rules are for division-level WWII games.  They have some interesting concepts.

Mike schools us all on the rules.

While Duncan was play testing his Cold Wars game, and we were play testing the division-level WWII rules, Eric was play testing his new fantasy skirmish game.

Combat Patrol (TM): Napoleonic Wars

Buck

Last Friday at HAWKs night Duncan Adams play tested his Combat Patrol™: Napoleonic Wars game for Cold Wars in a couple of weeks.  It was a hard slog for the British.

This is the first in a set of linked scenarios.  Duncan will run this game using his Napoleonic supplement to Combat Patrol™.  If the British capture the church, they will be in possession at the beginning of the next, larger-scale scenario, run by Dave using Wellington Rules.  The outcome of that scenario will impact the starting setup of their combined Fate of Battle: Look, Sarge, No Charts: Napoleonic Wars game.

British Rifles try to suppress the French defenders.  The white pipe cleaners mark that the men have fired.

I think the scenario went well, but it will be a difficult task for the British to seize the church.  Stop by Duncan’s table at Cold Wars and participate in this interesting fight.
