After a busy week at the gaming table planning, hosting and participating, today's update is a brief recap amidst the confusion. With a second Battle of Young's Branch on the docket for Monday, today will be spent resetting the table and getting all in order for the Monday gathering.
The gaming front saw three remote games in the week past. They were:
Tuesday: WWI Aerial Dogfight in 1/72 hosted by Richard. Graham's battle report at Up in the Air. All three German aircraft ended up on the ground. Not a good result if you were a German!Thursday: Punic Wars in 1/72 hosted by Peter. Peter's battle report at Ancient Campaign Part 7. If time permits, I may put together the account of the action from the Carthaginian perspective.
Saturday: Battle of Young's Branch in 10mm hosted by myself. Two player game against Stew from A Terrible Loss of Lead and Wealth. This action saw Stew in his first remote game. We experienced a couple of technical glitches through the six-hour session (whew!) but we made it through. I will definitely be retelling my fight with Stew once the dust settles from Monday's replaying of this scenario. For now, a couple of photos from early in the battle.
