The Chicago Way

We had eight guys out for the first club night of February. Dave and Jon hosted a game of Bolt Action (I think).

Bruce brought out a game of The Chicago Way with 28mm gangsters. Terry's crew of gangsters rolled up to an ice cream shop early on, going in to secure a bag of loot. Terry's wheels are pointing west.

Cop cars came screaming in from the north. The one below took a snoot full of 45 rounds from a tommy gun and rolls to a stop. A second set of cops showed up but they were on the take and our heroes were caught in a cross fire!

The second copy car (also ambushed) turned the corner and rammed the gangsters from behind!

It lost control and careened into some crates (out of action). But the gangsters (somehow) lost control turning a corner to flee north of the board.

Things then dissolved into a foot chase, with the bad cops dead, the good cops in hot pursuit and the federal rocket men arriving just in time to turn the tide.

Hot rolls in te beginning of the game really made a difference for the good cops (I could not miss for the first seven turns).

Up next: I am working on some 54mm British lights and Bruce and I are going to give the Punic Wars another go.

Looks like a fun game!

Those bad cops must not have been paid off enough. They did poorly!

It was fun--it had a nice narrative to it.
