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. By popular vot e it will be set in the mid 18th Century.

Another day, Another River Crossing
At last, the books for my wife's grooming shop are done and our tax stuff (technical term there) submitted with 2 weeks to go! Time to play.
I still have some figure painting, terrain construction and play testing to do for Huzzah but I just wanted to play a simple game, no strings attached. So, I broke open One Hour Wargames and selected a River Crossing scenario that I don't remember playing. (Note: I may have played it but since I don't remember without checking its close enough.) Then I turned to my shelves to pick a period and armies: 54mm traditional toy soldiers or 40mm semi-flat 18th C?
Or maybe one game of each.......
Somewhere in the Red River Valley.
Well, its all set up but... I'm out of time! Tomorrow then.
