The latest video from Little Wars TV is a fantastic wargame that winds the clock back to the day BEFORE First Manassas. Both teams maneuver on secret maps with fog of war from a GM. When contact is made, the battle is played out in 15mm using Fire and Fury. The hidden maneuvering part of the scenario winds up having a decisive result in the tabletop component….

Great video and AAR! That was a fun game, brandy or no brandy.

Having a little pre-game maneuver can make a huge difference in the table top battle. Often players become a little more cautious than usual but in this case both sides became aggressive. Maybe it was familiarity with the situation and also familiarity with opponents.

Quote of the game: "I got me a Union General".

Runner up: "We shall be in Washington tonight but not in victory."

Amazing that 30 years later, the original Fire and Fury rules still hold up extremely well. It's hard to name another set of rules with that kind of staying power. Not many of them!

They are good. They work really well for the larger actions.
