Finally got round to writing up the Xmas Game as we continue our WW1 Mesopotamia adventures.

This time the British and Empire Forces have retired to Kut and the siege has begun. The German Commander decides on a siege and settles in for the long term, however whilst he is away the Turkish Troops decide an attack is the better course of action.

It's 8pm Xmas Eve 1915 and the first wave leaves the trenches.

Full orbats and scenario details with a bit of Historical Background and an AAR to boot, what more could you want !

I ran a version of this about 7 years ago at Adepticon. Hopefully the picture comes through:

Later I ran this at Historicon and included the British gunboat and the Tigris river.
