Hastings Anniversary replay

Battle of Hastings 1066.

Today (14th October) is the 950th anniversary of the battle that proved to be a monarchal, social and institutional crossroads in the history of Britain.

I could hardly let the day go by without putting my Hastings boardgame on the table.


The following post shows highlights of today's play and provides links to system notes and previous replays.

Who will win the day? ....... this time!

Musket and Saber rules with ACW figures

Having recently been playing a few of the Musket and Saber mini-folio boardgames from Decision Games and with the rules fresh in my head, I thought it worth experimenting by taking the rule system to the miniatures tabletop using Kallistra 4" hexes and their 12mm ACW forces.


The following post looks at a generic scenario to test the rules and some observational notes on how it all worked out.

Germantown 1777 - Decision Games

This is the sister game to Decision Game's Saratoga. It is early October and the British have captured Philadelphia and then dispersed some of their force to deal with the forts along the Delaware River. Washington saw an opportunity to attack the weakened British main body at Germantown.


Notes about the system itself can be found in the recent Saratoga post (see Resource section below).

This post simply concerns itself with an AAR of Germantown together with some observational notes about the scenario.
