Last night we had large attendance at our HAWKs gaming night. I think we counted 18 people! Greg and Don ran the French and Indian War game they are running at NASHCON, and Dave ran his “Rescue the Prince” Bear Yourselves Valiantly fantasy game, also for NASHCON.
The FIW game seemed to go quite well. There was lots of carnage. After the game, Don and Greg agreed that the play balance was about right.
Lizzie got tuckered out after leading her French Marines for several hours.
We game in the Parrish House of a local church, so Duncan, Don, and Bruce took time from the game to practice singing hymns. The hymn was something about the modifiers for open order troops in the woods in three-part harmony, I think. 🙂
Dave’s game involved a group of “bad guys,” goblins and rats, trying to break into a town to kill an elven prince while also holding off the elven rescue force. While it was a very tight game, the “good guys” were able to break the prince out of the town.
There’s something impressive about 25mm figures on the table. Until I got involved with 10mm figures for the Look, Sarge family of rules, everything I did was in 25mm. Dave mounts his fantasy figures on magnetic sabot bases for use with Bear Yourselves Valiantly.
