Still playing more games this year . . .
The Thursday breakfast group played Liberte', a Euro-style game based loosely on the French Revolution. Clever design. we thought it was fun. would be good for the larger Saturday group.
Arquebus (GMT) Pavia 1525: Setup for the big battle. Looks like another tough one for the French!
Arquebus (GMT) Ravenna 1512: Another embarrassing loss by the French! They broke through the Spanish trench line in two places, but Spanish infantry counterattacks inflicted enough casualties to trigger the French Flight.
Our Thursday group finished a 3-player SpaceCorp. It was close all the way towards the end. Victory for Green, with the most $ and the most colonies. We all enjoyed the choices that had to be made and the game's theme - moving out into interstellar Space! I think the group will play this again soon.
Arquebus (GMT) Agnadello 1509. Embarrassing loss for the French as the Venetians, feeling pressure, eliminate enough French units to trigger a Flight roll.
Decision Games Red Eagles air war mini-game: 1943 Kuban campaign. Fun little mini-game with 40 counters and simple air combat and bombing rules. The Russians lost big (-14 VP difference), hampered by some big losses early in the game, and loss of air parity by a lack of re-fit cards.
Arquebus (GMT) 2nd battle Cerignola 1503: The French break through the Spanish Ramparts, aided by some good Crossbow rolls and a magazine explosion!
Finished a solitaire Corsair Leader campaign "New Britain 1943 USAAF". Got 37 VPs, one short of a "Great" evaluation. The B25 gunships work really well.
Arquebus (GMT) First battle Fornovo 1495:Gonzaga gets most of the Venetian army across the Taro River and soundly routs the French. After looting the French baggage wagons!
Situation after turn 1, 5-player King David. First Saturday Group game of the year. Judah is the red guys in the center.
