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.

Three Weeks and Counting

Three weeks to go.

First mock up of the layout.
There are more troops on hand than are needed but those selected will be be inspected and touched up before embarking. 

First priority at the moment is the table. The convention table will be 12" longer and 6" wider than mine so I have to keep that in mind. 

Still lots of work to be done but Saturday is game day in Kingston and this time, I'm just a player.

  2. I like the look of your table. Perhaps the extra space could be an area to put out leaflets, books about the period and any other display items. I know l really enjoy taking away some info about the game,mentioning your blog, the rules etc.

    1. I don't foresee there being much extra space and I prefer to not have too much clutter on the table. The cloth was originally designed to fit on a 6x10 table with an overhang on all sides so that's no issue. I did use some spare bits to mock up the 5x7 at home just to get a feel for what will fit.

      Players do get to keep a quick reference sheet from the rules if they want it and it will have my email and blog addresses but usually most will be friends or will at least played in my games before with only 1 or 2 newcomers.
