Bart would play the Poles, me the Lithuanians, Campbell the Turks and Donald the Reds. We would all converge from all side to the little fort filled with, you guessed it, Reds (?). We could forge alliances, but to stop 3 guys siding against one, while Peter umpired the game, the Reds were allied with the Turks.
So we creeped in snail speed towards the centre and then, we, Bart and me, as in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth against the Soviet corruption, got by some divine intervention some extra armoured cars as we were dying like the flies in a forrest fire. Which was my fault, apparently, as I was hiding in the Birch forrest, like any good Lithuanian would start out otherwise it would have been amazing ...
Then later after half of our units got shot away, Campbell turned sides and we entered the walls of the fort. To my surprise the Reds withdraw and thus finally won the game just by hairs length ...
What a wonderful game, I really enjoyed it, and congratulations to Donald, its not often that Bart got shot away!!!
Next time, I think, I want the centre to be a non-player (as Reds) and the incoming Russians to be White with every party freely to forge and break alliances at any time. Did I mentioned that I didn‘t liked the set up?
|The initial set up and the reds in the middle and at the far (short) side|
|The Reds hiding behind a wall|
|Ata turks men|
|The first Poles on the field - yes horses!|
|And all the Lithuanians hiding in the Birch forrest, what a game changer!|
|Some clashes between Poles and Reds|
|Then I left the woods, but to late|
|The enemy just had formed into THE Death Vallley|
|with Turkish help, ts, ts, ts!|
|Nevermind, I stormed!|
|And 1 unit reached the wall!|
|then the Turks thought the better of it and changed sides|
|A Russian Gun vanished in the ensuing carnage|
|And finally my Victors from Riga went over the wall - but too late Donald retreated into the house!|
