Readers of this blog and other fora where I post regularly could be forgiven for thinking I only ever play BBB. Actually that's not the case at all, I regularly sample different wargames across different periods and scales. January has been particularly rich in this respect. In the course of a four-day holiday gaming weekend I got to play:
- General d’Armee (Napoleonics)
- O Group (WWII)
- Test of Resolve (Wars of the Roses)
- Live Free or Die (AWI)
- Fire at Sea (WWII naval)
- and a professional military education map game of the 1799 campaign.
As a rules author myself, I try to steer clear of commenting on others' rulesets, so let me limit myself here to saying that all the games were good fun and justified their inclusion in the weekend's agenda.
No profound reflections this time, just a selection of photos to give a taste of the range of games and a look at my friends' nice figures.
Tonight's entertainment will be something different again: Seven Years War, the battle of Kolin, using the Kriegskunst rules. More on that in due course, no doubt.
