Twilight Struggle

Cameron crushed me by turn 4.  But it was a learning game, and mistakes were made!

And what a fantastic game!!!!

End Game on the Nile

Played with the Camp Cromwell crowd at End Game.  The game was Hail Caesar with the Mad Mahdi and the British.

The British were trying to relieve a fort.  I was part of the Madhi's army, commanding some fanatical cavalry.  My job was to charge, which I was spectacularly unsuccesfull at, losing most of my combats.

The game was at End Gae, and the plan is to have more historical games there.

It was a long table!

The end.  The Madhi won -- but it was phyrric!!!!

Bolt Actions -- Germans First Run

My first attempt at a German force didnt work well.  Small German units die too easily!!!!  The Russian SU152 was just lethal.  I missed with my first shot with a PaK 40, and its return fire blew the PaK away.  It then stunned away my StuG, while using its MG all the time to whittle away my infantry.


The village was beautiful!

Cameron and Christine battle it out on Mars!

Meanwhile, I am left in the dust.

We have fallen in love with Terraforming Mars!!!!

This was such a close game -- Christine got 140, and Cameron 135 points.  I was a poor last, with 80 points.  Like Cameron last game, I built a great engine, and then didnt have time to catch up!!!!
