. . . give a ship.

Well, since hopeful games are allowed, I am hoping GMT gets their edition of this in my hands in the next eleven months, though that's probably not possible!

On a similar note, I'd love to hear more information about Don't Let a Bastard Over The Bridge from the same (original) company. (Also, when linking this item, do not get it confused with Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus Game!)

Also, I'm hoping Columbia kickstarts a new game. If I remember correctly, on their poll of what people wanted to see, a sci-fi block game was pretty high . . . wink, nudge, beg.

Also I really hope a new Bretonian Army Book comes out for Warhammer because I want an excuse to paint the Green Knight!

A solo play of the game's first scenario. It didn't really click for me (particularly in how it represents the period), though I feel like I should give it another try.

I'm one of two people to have played Almeida et Bussaco 1810 this month, so count that as a near miss.

Yesterday evening I mostly set this up, then started reading the rules and fell asleep. Not because the rules were boring, but because I was weirdly tired for some reason. I woke up about 40 minutes later and when I'd managed to recalibrate sufficiently, I finished the setup and finished reading the rules, so I'll be ready to start properly this evening.

Anyway, I enjoyed Pax Baltica and I'm looking forward to this one. The rules are straightforward but there's a nice amount of historical detail through the nation-specific rules and the many, many events. The War of the Spanish Succession is a historical topic of particular interest to me, even though it's been years since I've read about it, so that was a major draw for the game.

The Vacant Lot

One of my favorite sketches from this short-lived show (song's still stuck in my head, 20 years later):

It covers the whole war using the same system of Pax Baltica.
