Cornwallis' Retreat coming soon at Wargames Tonight

On June 10th  We played a game of Black Seas.
Arofan ran the English fleet turning to save his trailing ship Mars  
Heavy fire was exchanged first at long and then much closer range. 

Mars was repeatedly hit by multiple French ships.  Mars was eventually forced to strike on fire 
The game ended with a dramatic collision between the flag ships and and the Bellerophon being grappled by a French ship Tigre.  Bellerophon won the boarding action though we ruled the result minor French victory (one could argue it was a draw). 

I'll post the video link when its available

Ayercon Frostgave

Last Sunday I was thrilled to run a lite version of Frostgave with local Cub Scouts.  Dave Valintine ran Devil in the wilderness, Bill Greenwald ran an RPG called The Loop (hope I got that right) and my new friend Hunter Theon(our daughters are besties) rand D&D.

My first game included two crossbow men who were deadly shots except when facing this bear 
Two brothers teaming up to kill a great worm.
We also saw my gravegolum make an appearance and a team of players take him down. While another player barely avoided possession by demonic forces
The second game has only two players and they kept getting mixed up in numerous battles. Including a wizard who wanted to be left alone.
One player lost both his characters after running from the Giant only to attack a resting undead creature he could have bypassed. Good fun all around.
