What's next, after playing on-line games with the blokes up the road? Well, why not expand the circle of participants to include Cambridge and Washington State? Jon F of the Palouse Wargaming Journal blog has been a regular commenter on the blog, and a supporter of the rule sets, so it seemed like a cool thing to do to see if he wanted to Skype in for a game of "To Ur is Human". From Cambridge (the original one in the UK) we had young Rob G. Why I know him is too long to explain. He and Jon took the attackers, and Richard the defenders.
We never did get a heavy infantry v heavy infantry scrap, as that was about three hours, and Richard's army was in pieces.
I have played a lot of games of "To Ur is Human" and never had one where the battle cars have been so effective. They intimidated their opponents then ran all over them. It was truly astonishing. I mean it is what is supposed to happen if things go well for them, but I've never seen it go THAT well.
So, a fun evening for the new guys, less so for Richard. I'm pleased with the new look for the armies, and the lighter cloth helps with the photography. I think we have this video game thing sorted now, except for the sudden loss of internet speed and the need to swap from Skype to Zoom half way through.
