I realized today that my last post was 11 days ago. So in case anyone is watching I am not dead, in fact I am suffering from a bit too much real life these days to blog! End of term is on me fast (I had 130 first years stats midterms to mark).
However, last week I went over to Curt's for an intro game of Bolt Action, which I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed. The mechanisms were quick to learn and it had a good feel. I like the draw the die from the cup method a lot - I've used a similar mechanisms in various generations of MacDuff and it's ancestors. I had 3 squads of German paras plus an MG and an armoured car (visions of Lt. Gruber of courses) and we kicked two squads of Brits (plus an MG) out of an Italian town.
