No problem Martin. Despite my lack of knowledge I still manage to beat you quite often!

Miles, a good game scenario for our late night PBI battle, thank you.
We have stockpiled the Calva in key locations in Swnage and Stoke in case of a No-Deal Brexit and over-zealous Border Agency staff confiscating supplies coming across from Normandy!

Big Mike,

Have you discovered Somerset cider brandy? They use genuine French copper stills, and should ensure a Brexit-proof supply: https://www.somersetciderbrandy.com/

Tastes like Calva, but clearly better, as it's British. Should I fill the car up?

To be honest all these sprites sound nice, you can bring what ever you like to the table. I am sure it will flow down the throat nicely ! The late game is a chance to relax have a good game and enjoy good company over a nice drink, but not too drunk ! without having to think I about driving the next day.
Must admit it's a hard debate to enter whether a good cider comes from Britain or France ? I have had the opportunity over the years to have both in quantity and have both enjoyed both equally. But saying that from a personal point of view a relatively cheap French supermarket "rough" non sparkling cider with all the bits in does edge it for me.

A pint of Somerset cider with a chaser of Norman Calvados could be just the thing for maintaining the Entente Cordial, and no hangover..... (?)

I will have SCW, Western and BB "set ups" with me. Anyone is welcome to use those armies for a game.  In addition I will bring some gamettes for quick play.

Excellent too Stewart. Don't buy any tea bags though. We still have hundreds! :)
