I ran 4 games over the weekend, with 2 British wins and 2 German wins (the Italians didn't get out of their box this time). Both the Brits and Germans had 1 narrow win and 1 solid win, so honours were definiately even. In the last game of Lads vs Dads, the grown-ups scored the best German win of the weekend and gained the bragging rights for the car trip home.
There wasn't much time for wandering around and seeing the show (or shopping). I did a bit late on Sunday and took some shots of the other games I really liked the look over (no idea how they actually played). Here are a few shots of the BG Tobruk boards and those other games.
Tobruk is very much still a WIP, but it should be good for release in spring next year. First, we need to get the BG rulebook back into print and finish Wacht am Rhein.
Hessian cloth over books for undulating desert. Heavy sprinkled with sharp sand and budgie grit, followed by small bits of clump foliage and lichen, and a few larger rocks. I was tempted to play Soldiers of God over it.
The village and irrigation ditch in the far corner. The British had possession on day 1, the Germans got it on day 2.
The Crusader IIs arrive to duke-it-out with the Pz IIIs, a pretty even contest, but their 2pdr gun is going to struggle at range. One glanced off a 222 armored car four times!
The move to contact begins.
Some of the others...
Quatre Bras, by the 'Like a Stonewall' Club. A huge game next to mine. French cavalry on the attack.
