Tonight saw two firsts - the first actual multi player game in the man cave on the new table. Plus it was the first ACW game. The ACW has become a a group effort for a bunch of us , and with troops and terrain now being available it was time to chuck some dice .
James , brought over his Confederate Brigade and Steve a Union one - both realy well painted. I had completed another Union infantry giving me two and 3 guns.
We were using Regimental Fire and Fury , with the Union troops being Green and Confederates being trained. We were just testing out the game mechanics for a few turns , and finding out what else bit and bobs we needed to make up - more disorder , damaged gun markers mostly. I need to finish up some ford pieices , and some bridges - so they have been added to the "to do" list.
|Rebs defend the stream|
|Steves units deploy|
|Reb in the built up area|
|Steve Marches his unit down the road|
|Rebs prepare to fire. |
|My units engage more rebs in the wheat field|
|It was getting bloody|
So we played through a few turns , of maneuver, firing and a charge. It felt liked it worked as it should
Happy gamers - we even had Martin join us on video "Hangout" to see what he was missing
Great to get things under way - and plans afoot for a longer , more specific scenario driven game
