We played our fifth practise game tonight. I think we now have a pretty good grasp of the rules, which work well, now that we are more familiar with them and have found various online summary sheets. One of my friends has even summarised the rules, which I still believe are verbose and poorly edited. But do give a good game.
Here are some shorts of tonight's game. Again we have the Mexican Civil war...
But on the other wing the French rout one Republican battalion, and force another to retire, disordered. We then ran out of time. Honours were broadly even, and it was a great game. We have decided that we really need to start a campaign.
My farourite moment in the game ocurred when, in the very first turn, the French's Indian allies who had caused me so much grief last week, fumbled a Command roll, ran off the table, and refused to return!
