Henry and I have just finished our second play test of our "Merry Christmas, Mr Sankara" campaign. Our campaign ran to 5 games, due in part to some appalling luck for Henry in game 4. Most plays of this campaign should run to between 5-8 games.

We have had a fantastic time playing through and I'm hoping to get the campaign book, which runs to about 30 pages, on to the Wargames Vault website this month.

Here are the games in order:

1st air battle over Arbinda, morning of 26th December: link

Advance on Djibo, morning of 27th December: link

Burkina Faso fights back, afternoon of 27th December: link

Counterattack, morning of 28th December: link

Third air battle of Arbinda, afternoon of 28th December: link

My next projects are likely to be the 1969 Football War (cheers Boggler!) and maybe another naval campaign. The Agacher Strip War has been great fun to play, but while I get everything painted for the next project we'll probably be back over the trenches near Betancourt in our Western Front 1917 campaign.

Really enjoyed your campaign and really looking forward to seeing it published. The Football War is an excellent choice for a follow on.

Looking forward to getting this. Does it cover your square conversion ? If not any hints on how you did it?
