HI game tomorrow
« on: November 09, 2017, 07:32:09 PM »
After the trauma of losing and then finding my mat again, I am at last getting to play HI at the club.

I seem to be in a rare period of regular gaming. With 2 Vietnam games, 1 Western, 2 ACW, HI tomorrow and probably around 6 games at the Weekender I will have played more in one month than I have in the previous 12. Certainly encourages productivity on the painting table!

I'm not sure I can either. Find out tonight though! Tempted to play the whole game as opposed to a scenario. I'll see how it goes and as ever report back.

Is that the same time as Les' firebase game? I had  opted to play in that (I think!) ....but happy to run Hammerin Iron if there is interest. I'll through the stuff in the car either way.

Well we had a blast. 4 players, 2 per side with me umpiring. I did change the arrivals role to make it slightly easier for the defenders ships to arrive. For the first 3 turns they had 1 ship on table between two players 😀 So I made the roll decrease in difficulty each turn until they succeeded - starting on 9, then 8, then 7 and so on. This repeated for each new ship.

The attackers kept delaying the countdown to enable them to get down river and tackle the objectives. The defender eventually got 4 of their 5 ships on table albeit one arrived in the penultimate turn.

The game ended up 35pts to the defender and 26 to the attacker. The USS Cairo was the first defender ship on table and took a hammering early on but survived to the end of the game despite being battered.

The CSS Navy managed to destroy the depot but didn't get any where near the transport objectives. They lost the Manassas and the Nashville but failed to sink any US ships.

What a great game. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Pictures over the weekend at some point.

All PP games are 'great fun' that's the way they have been designed, play tested, and thats the way they should be played.

That's a very good summary, Les - we could almost have that as an RFCM strapline.
