Today, we were doing Seven Year War gaming again with my Prussians very keen to get revenge on the Russians, who beat us badly last game!

How did it go? please go to my blog at this link

Herky, the Russians beat you again?!

Call up the reserves and get Frederick himself in there.

Looks like fun, have a Happy Christmas!!!

Cheers Robert!

Yes, its unbelievable how many bad dice I am getting, and if the dice are against you…

Andy, the chap who runs our club website took over my right wing at half time, and after a couple of great rolls which destroyed the Corps of Observation grenadiers, the dice realised their mistake, and the poor chap rolled a long series of 1s and 2s which wrecked the entire right wing cavalry!

Oh, and a very Happy Christmas to you, your family and friends!

It sounds like someone needs to be relieved of command.

Ah, that would be General Dice, I will take you up on your suggestion!

Court martial General Dice. Parade him (them) in front of the other dice and use a large hammer on him. Let them know they are next unless morale improves.

I think I see your problem, too many chestnut colored horses, need to get some bad ass dark bays. (smile)

All of my bays have been bad ass, my one chestnut was a good horse but a little too nice.
