Two games planned.

1) Two Villages, a Frontier Skirmish – 1774
Friday, 8pm 4 hours, 4 players

During Lord Dunmore's War, Virginia militia marched on the Ohio Frontier to attack Shawnee Villages. The game portrays the woodland fighting as a column of rangers and militia approach two villages. Played with 25mm figures using the Musket Mod for "So Convenient for Hewing."

2) Foraging 1066
Saturday, 10am 4 hours, 4 players

Prior to the Battle of Hastings two foraging parties, one Saxon and one Norman, clash as they seek food and forage in a nearby village. Red battle in the south of England; a Dark Age game played using "So Convenient for Hewing."

Ponder on,

Photo below from a playtest of Foraging 1066 from last Saturday (5/21).

The Saxons won.

Normans: 2 pillage points (VPs) 3 dead knights, 2 dead crossbowmen, 2 dead spearman --- with 1 knight captured

Saxons: 4 pillage points 4 dead Thegns, 2 dead Fyrd

It was a fun game. At one point in the game the Saxons came within a pip of routing one of the knight units. Close but no weo.

FYI The red and blue markers are simply used to identify units for those not familiar with the rules. Those markers are not typically used in the game.

Ponder on,
