The game took somewhere between 1 and 2 hours to reach a final, surprise, conclusion and turned out to have just the sort of look and feel I have been working towards since deciding to do a permanent downstairs card table game, based on Bob Cordery's Portable Wargame with an improvised ACW version of Sawmill Village, back in November of 2012 .
And so dear readers, let me take you back 130 odd years, to a land far away......
|The armies clashed at the little town of Grant's Mills. Moving quickly, the mounted Burgers seized the town and their accurate fire forced back the MG but its return fire soon drove them from the town.|
The Hungoverian Infantry was slow to follow up and the Nottinglish Guards pushed forward seizing a farm on their left as well as the center of the town under the cover of their heavy artillery. The City Guard was at hand though and pressing forward through a horrendous storm of shell and bullets, took back the town in a fierce hand to hand struggle, wiping out the stubborn 1st Guards.
