Battles & Brews 2022 is happening next weekend in Independence, MO and Yours Truly will be there with my French & Indian War toys. Go here to learn more about this weekend of wargaming for grownups. Sorta. I've committed to one game on Saturday afternoon (The Clearing - 1758) to playtest some era-specific rules amendments for Wiley Games' Fistful of Lead: Bigger Battles.
Come be part of the fun! To get you in the mood, here are a few photos from the Fistful of Lead game from last March I promised to post about way back then. The scenario was a prisoner "exchange" between French and British regulars; both sides had broken the truce by hiding irregulars in the woods in an attempt to take BOTH hostages. The British regulars fired first, but the French-allied Natives forced the hand-to-hand action - in a typical Fistful-style "Blood Alley" - and the French regulars cleaned up to complete the overwhelming French victory.
See ya there!
