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.

Art de la Guerre -- 100 Years War

Nick vs Carl at Art de la Guerre.

Carl was French Ordonnance.  Nick was 100 year war English.   Battle set in the last 5 years of the 100 Years War.

The battlefield.  A Cigar Box Battle Mat.  With some fields and orchards.


The English setup.  Concentrated on one flank.

Carl deciding his strategy

With the right slowly collapsing, the center advances

The English right collapses, giving victory to Carl!

HOGS

hmmm -- people were taking games too seriously!

Villages of Something was fun

I thought I had a winning strategy, but screwed up to come second.

We were going to play this, but Martin couldn't sell the game.
Last game was a Japanese Geisha game.  But I forgot to take pictures.

Star Wars Destiny

Went to HOGS, that was being hosted at good games.  Mike (the owner of good games) taught me how to play Star Wars Destiny.

It is a good game -- but you MUST have a starter set to play.  You cant play without characters, and characters are rare beasts!  I am glad I have it, but I dont think I will expand my collection.
