Peter is starting to post the After Action Reports from SnapCon V Campaign in a Day -- Peninsula 1809 held at The Portal in Manchester, CT, with 16 gamers across 16 tables. This is on his blog Blunders On The Danube.

Part 1 is more 'Pre Action Report' because it covers the 16 tables, OOBs, Briefing, and so on.


Part 2 is a photo-intensive overview of the beginning of the campaign as maneuvering transitions into skirmishes and into then into battles.


Finally, you can go to the main page of the blog and click on the link Campaigns in a Day w/ Snappy Nappy to get an index of all the previous Campaigns in a Day, with OOBs, Table layouts, etc, including SN's Quick Reference Sheets.


I see the May 13 entry has Part 3!

Anyone had experience using commercial felt for wargaming mats, roads, forests, rivers etc?

Any issues with durability?

Any preferences about quality?

Our club has a load of felt cloths. They seem to hold up fine under substantial use (we have games 2-4 nights/week, every week).

The miin thing is to stay away from soldi colors. All of ours are a green color called "reets relish" that is (a) a more olive green rather than that Christmas kelly green that looks like crap IMHO and (b) has flecks of medium and ark green in it, so it looks much more natural.

Crispy, that reets relish is the perfect color.

Yes that does look gret judging by the sample color of this reets relish from joann fabric
