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

Diversion

I'm not used to being this focused on one period and one scenario and I felt like it was time for a break. Something quick and simple and different, then I could get back to "work".

I had a vague image in my head of a mid-18thC NQSYW petite guerre scenario, an ambush perhaps,  but since I wanted something quick and easy I turned to Thomas's One Hour Wargames.
The Wolf Regiment and Freedom Legion Volunteers prepare to defend the ruins of a once busy town.

OK, this wasn't what I had in mind but when I flipped the book open I found myself looking at the last scenario. This is an example of a Last Stand and one of the few scenarios in the book that I hadn't tried yet.


I could tell you how the game went but I believe that a reporter from the Newport Noodle was present with the Red Queen's troops so we can expect the Noodle to publish a report ere long.
