One of two games played at this months meeting of the DWG was a tribute game to the late, great Sir Roger Moore recreating his role in one of the great series of British action movies produced in the late 70's, 'The Wild Geese'.


If you would like to see how the mission turned out and if the chaps managed to get President Limbani on to his waiting Dakota, then just follow the link to the club blog.

Excellent! Caught the mood of the original rather well I think. Which rules were you using?

The rules we used were "Winter of '79 – Wild Geese".

The rules used are from Caliver Books at the following link:


They are the "African" version of the Winter of '79 rules (the rules are the same but the scenarios differ)
