Art de la Guerre -- War of the Roses

My Lancastrian force, led by Percy, moved South.  With Scottish pikemen, northern militia, and a small retinue I came up against Carl with an elite force of knights and archers.

It was a close game.  Carl broke my force.  But if he hadnt I would have broken him next turn with 3 flank attacks about to charge home.  So close but so far!

Carl's damned Yorkists!

Lancastrian Scots showing the Yorkists the right amount of respect!

Pandemic Legacy -- Hobart -- January

We have started Pandemic Legacy in Hobart.  Playing with Cameron, Christine, Martha, and me.

We started the January game with a fairly standard roster of Medic, Dispatcher, Researcher, and Scientist.  We won, but only just.  Cameron "we have the game wrapped up" Harris drew a bad epidemic card, and we had 3 outbreaks on the last turn!  Net result is a pair of rioting cities!!!!  And we are only at January!!!!

But we won!

Went to HOGS with Marie and gave Martha a lift.

Played Galaxy Trucker.  I thought Marie would be great at it, as she is so good a jigsaws.  But it turns out that Galaxy Trucker is just not her game -- her ship got blown apart twice!

We started off with Seven Wonders.

Lots of people playing!

Marie's ship -- 2/3rds has been blown off!!!!

Marie isn't happy about this game!

Ship #3 is doing OK.  Martha's has been devastated by slavers.

Art de la Guerre -- Romans vs Britons

More Art de la Guerre.

A very, very, very close game, that could have gone either way.  I won, as Romans -- but I was teetering on the brink of defeat for the last 3 turns!

The Romans are charging the Britons before they can be outflanked.

Carl plotting an evil plan!

A blurry contact

What happens here -- can the cavalry attack the lone skirmisher, as it cant adjust?

The end -- The Romans have broken the British center, but have been outflanked.  A Phyrric victory!

Art de la Guerre -- Byzantines vs Sassanids

Nick (Byzantines) vs Sassanids (Carl).

Carl creamed me, killing 2 of my 3 generals, and paralyzing my army.  I tried to outmaneuver, stuffed it, and was comprehensibly defeated!!!

The Byzantine flank march came on in the first turn, giving away its position.

The Sassanids organize a defense

The Byzantine line forms

Carl records his imminent victory.
