Ides of March at the club

We had 16 guys out at the club last night, which was a big turn out! I hosted Scott, Wiley and Bruce in a game of 1775: Rebellion.

I thought the Americans had the game well in hand, especially after Bruce landed in Delaware and Nova Scotia. We were all over the Imperialists!

We then pursued a southern strategy as the game dragged on and on (where are the end game cards?). The British pushed hard into New England and the Americans ran into some trouble with the dice (despite locking up the south and contesting the north).

The British got to move last on the last turn and managed to overturn a 7-3 colony advantage to win the game. Arrrrrgh!

There were a tonne of other games out.

Mini-wise, I think there was one game of Warmachine and two games of game Kings of War.

And there were two boardgames: San Juan and a Vietnam game.

Up next: More Battlelore figures and an old Matchbox WW2 kit.

The Ides of March and not a Roman game in the lot?

This is the first year in almost a decade where our March club game night didn't feature some sort of Ancients game.

Alas, club planning has slipped some in recent years. I should have done CCA but couldn't be bothered to sort blocks in the time I had.
