Link to Report: Stupid Planes

Great story and excellent pictures really keep the reader engaged in the action...and for some reason, I enjoy the larger font. It helps to punch up the story, and is probably easier on my rapidly decreasing eyesight. Excellent read!

Honorable Mention:

Link to Writer: Pete Walsh
Link to Report: A Saar-y Lot Plots to Rule the Galaxy

I was able to forgive the terrible pun and when I did I found an intriguing tale of greed, backstabbing and corruption, TI-style. I could see this SR getting a fan of this game in the mood for a quick 5 hour play...great job!

Just when I think I've seen all the possible ways to construct a session report, an ingenious geek comes along and impresses me with yet another method! They say, "a picture is worth a thousand words," but when the pictures are drawn by the reporter himself, they seem to speak more like 10,000 words. Great read and excellent sketches!

This geek is no stranger to the SR Award list, and this time he offers us a short-and-sweet recap of Colonel Mosby's short-and-sweet foray behind Union lines. And I hate him for it, because now he's put yet another solo wargame onto my wishlist. Great read!

Have you ever come across a session report that you feel is so well-written that it should come as an addendum to the rules? This pair of reports would be a good example of this, as our writer combines a well-drawn story with excellent play-by-play analysis and great pictures to craft an all-around must-read for any fan of this epic adventure. Bravo!
