A couple of big game hunt reports using Howard's The Lions Eats Tonight on the Jackson Gamers blog: link

A good time was had by all, or at least by those who didn't get squashed by rogue bull elephants!

I thoroughly encourage this sort of behaviour!

I played this several times while deployed in Afghanistan. We used rocks and crude drawings and a very distressed plastic ruler. We had a great time with it though, and the shock and awe of the ANA troops and the discussions generated just added to our merriment! ;)
Since I've been home, I've played twice using Zulu war minis with my kids and their zoo tube animals…it is a very good family wargame!.
I can say this game has been properly vetted by and can be certified as 11B proof! ;)

I was planning on being there but found at the last moment that I had to cover the Saturday morning clinic.

Lion wounds again, doc? They turn septic very quickly. I imagine you had to saw some legs off.
