On Sunday October 15th from 8am to 12pm the notorious "Last Stand" Dan Gurule will be running one of his infamous "ALWAYS SEND A GUNBOAT!" games, which, depending on your age and taste in movies, may remind you of a certain Steve McQueen classic from roundabout 1966…

China 1925 -- While on Patrol, an American Gunboat turns around the bend in the Yangtze river to find a "heavy boom" blocking this water chokepoint. The Chinese rebellion is in full swing. Students, thugs, warlords and military units are all in revolt but now have a common enemy: the Foreign Devils!

Room for 6 players using Dan's trademark combo of The Sword And The Flame and Gunboats & Dhows! All you have to bring is a good attitude, everything else will be provided.

WHERE: the Double-Tree by Hilton Buena Park hotel, 7000 Beach Blvd, Buena Park, CA 90620

WHEN: Sunday October 15th, 2023 from 8am to 12pm

HOW: Use this handy LINK to visit the Mini-Wars convention website & purchase attendance badges:


…or if you already have a convention badge, you can use this LINK to reserve tickets for this specific game:


Hope to see you there on the Yangtze -- either running the blockade or manning it!

Thanks, Nick! Just for you, here's a few more pics of the game in action when Dan recently ran it at Hurricon:

Terrific looking. I love that film and this looks to do it honor.

I played this scenario at HurriCon with Dan and the HMGSSouth Crew. What an awesome time, great scenario, beautiful boats and minis!
