" Our regular Thursday Zoom game was a return to the Sudan.

Nice pics and report, thanks!
REminds me of a similar game I played some 30 years ago. Admittedly, I lost no MG wheel, which helped, but I scouted both in front and behind me, which tipped me of the nasty surprises enough in advance. I immediately formed a square, and it was not till the end of the battle I had to shore up a crumbling side with the rear facing one. I could not stop some dervishes from breaking through, which cost me a good part of the baggage I'd enclosed in the square. Not a defeat, but no victory as well, as my column had to give up its mission. Boy, that was quite a game! Still fond emmories of it.
