The latest edition of the Apparently Annual Sharp Practice Christmas Foraging Game at Gigabites Cafe. 2018 model. Besides taking place in a winter setting, we add a few more holiday touches to the Sharp Practice rules. We used small chocolates to fill up the Force Morale chart, small candies(Caramel Hershey kisses supplied by William) for shock and we gave a Holiday Quiz between turns. Correct answers get Command Chips. This 5 player game was to feature an overly successful Jager foraging party needing to get across a bridge-which was guarded by a Rebel picket post with cannons. A Loyalist relief force trying to open the crossing and a Rebel Militia unit trying to catch up to the Jagers. The wild card unit was some Oneidas out to grab some loot from whatever side had the most convenient shopping venues.
The setting was in the New York colony so I went with some names from Washington Irving tales.

Ah, Foraging games!
No time tested authentic formal battle that everyone knows inside out!
Looks like it was fun.

What a great game – and with Kisses provided too!

I like the snow effect, and the sprinkles on the figure stands made them melt right into the snow-scape.

Well done Holiday treat!

We always tear up New Jersey for these types of games. We're all okay with that..
