S&T No. 242 - They Died With Their Boots On, Vol 2 - Chasing Villa



For Labor Day Weekend, I decided to try out "They Died With Their Boots On", Vol. 2. This was originally published in S&T 242 and there's actually two games, the US Campaign in the Old Northwest against the Indians/British in 1791-94 and Pershing's pursuit of Pancho Villa.

In the game I'm been playing solitaire (seems to be the only way these days), I've played 9 turns and while the Egyptians have made some progress in pushing accross the Suez Canal and even reaching the Milita Pass, it's still pretty much of a… Continue
