This is a rambling post about the history of my personal Raid on Taranto project, the first version, the second version and the final version, which I ran at the recent ScrumCon. It went from small and complex, to small and less complex, to big and incredibly simple!

Thanks for reading thus far and thanks for your patience

Very well done! I had seen the Graber game at Minden, wondered about it. It was interesting to see how you managed the cameras and made the game workable with the bases. I am wondering if, post Covid, people from all over may continue to play like this online, and the cameras and presentation may become more second nature to people.

Would you be willing to share your rules?

I would. I'm making changes based on play at the moment. I only tested it solitaire and although it worked well, play with actual people changed a few things.

Tortorella: I actually I reworked everything mechanical to make a game that would play better on remote cameras. By this I mean making movement and scale somewhat abstracted and having card draw resolution of events, both of which are easy to do over a webcam.
