Viewer's Choice Celebration MiniCampaign

It has now been over 20 years since I launched "With MacDuff On the Web" and nearly 10 years since I launched my 2 blogs: Gathering of Hosts and Battle game of the Month.

To celebrate the years and the friends and the million hits I've decided to run a 3 game mini-campaign in late October and I'm asking YOU to help choose the period. It has to be something from my current list but please comment on any post from Sep 12 till Oct 1 or email me : . and to let me know your preference and any suggestions on the mini campaign.

The polls are now open!

Standington Bridge - Teaser

In the distance, the first Republican scouts top the crest of Iron Hill.

Apart from wanting to get back to Atlantica for the MacDuff game, I was stuck for what do for a scenario so I started to lay out some random terrain. OK so some of you are thinking, "Random?  That looks familiar....". 

Well, it started out random-ish, just looking for something other than a pitched battle. I started thinking "attack on a shore battery", but I've done that a couple of times over the last year and  still haven't made a "proper" lake/ocean shore. Somehow  the thoughts "delaying action" and "bridge demolition"   popped into my head and collided. Step by step, that led me here.  

Confusion reigns in Standington as the long roll rouses the Queen's troops.

Hopefully I'll get to play tomorrow.


  1. Looks like a promising idea for a game, looking forward to heari g more. An interesting shot of the workbench / mad scientist's laboratory in the top picture!

    1. A promising idea but not really mine. It is the Sittangbad scenario from Charge!, downsized a tad.

      There is certainly an air of madness to my work area, but not so much science I think.
