S-221 Fort DeRussy, Louisiana - March 14, 1864I, unfortunately, didn't take as many pictures of this beautiful game as I should have, but you will have no problem finding others. This huge, fun, beautiful game really stood out.
American Civil War; 9 AM; Length: 5 hrs; Hosted by: John McConnell; Scale: 28mm; Rules: Brother Against Brother (Modified); No. of Players: 12.
A small Confederate garrison of holds the fortification known as Fort DeRussy in front of a much larger Union force at the start of the Red River Campaign. Just a few weeks later, this same Union army will be defeated at the battle of Mansfield. What if the Confederates had moved a little quicker, and the Union army a little slower, and instead the two armies fought over possession of the fort? Under 15 permitted with an Adult.
S-279 Muskets & Tomahawks: Battle of Bloody Run 1763More Pontiac's Rebellion anniversary gaming! I have held Musket & Tomahawks in my hands repeatedly. It's from the maker of Saga, which I enjoy, although they are altogether different games. It's just $40 for the rules, for a game I most likely won't play any time soon! 40mm FIW is definitely one of those "someday" games. I get the figures out and paint a unit every now and then, when the whim strikes. $40 for yet another set of rules I won't play is just a waste. And yet...they gave a really great game. I have usually disliked spotting rules, but I thought they worked well here. My Light Infantry could not see the natives in the woods until they were right on top of me! Not just that, but the figure count wasn't really out of line with what I could reasonable accomplish, even in 40mm. And, I probably had half the figures for this very scenario right now! I came out of this game stoked up and ready to buy M&T and a bunch of Sash and Sabre!
French & Indian War; 6 PM; Length: 4 hrs; Hosted by: Thomas Keegan; Scale: 28mm; Rules: Muskets & Tomahawks; No. of Players: 6.
In the pre-dawn hours of July 31, 1763 Captain Dalyell sallied from the besieged Fort Detroit to punish the insolence of the Native Americans by burning their villages. Pontiac, well aware of the British plans, lay in wait for the overconfident attackers, eager to fulfill a prophecy that the British would be driven from America. Will Bloody Run flow with British or Native American blood?
