Yesterday, Lady Emma Cuddlestone-Smythe and I played our annual Christmas Holiday Teddy Bears Wars war game. Lady Emma's keen employment of solid tactics and professional dice rolling paved the way to her victory.

(Sorry about the pictures showing only the link rather than the picture. I don't know what happened as it usually works)



Click the link to my blog, Der Alte Fritz Journal, to read the illustrated tutorial in full. Tomorrow I will post the after action game report of the Teddy Bears Wars game.

Nicely Done Lady Emma, my dice hate me no matter how I throw them.

Your Blogger picture link does not end with .JPG.

Has something changed recently? My Blogspot one is OK.

Jim, my url on the pictures is something like forty characters long and I don't know how to edit the address to add the jpeg ending. I tried and it didn't work for some reason.

Yes, its a new thing on Blogger, the system allocates a long address not ending in JPG, so it isnt recognised on TMP as an image.
We seem stuck with it now, sadly.

Well done. It looks like she is having fun.

It looks like you had a fun game, mate. My sons used to show the same delight when they were giving me a pounding in a game. I think kids develop a sort of telekinesis when they're playing a parent- the dice seem to do just what they want.

Wonderful thanks

Tsk tsk, get rid of the damn soft drinks!
Bad for health and teeth, not necessarily in that order!

While nothing is perfect, natural fruit juices are far better for kids, even if watered down.

But I agree on the gaming, nice flourishes!
cheers d

My daughter had the enviable way to roll dice whatever she needed when she needed it. We used to play jriii and she would roll the dice and just whip me which are some of the most memorable times we had. Now, she is waiting for her twin girls to enter into this world. They probably will roll dice like their mom.
