Siege of Augusta XXI - Jan 20 - 22 2012

Couple Pics from the recent Convention in Augusta GA - They had a good turnout all though the sudden death of local Atlanta gamer may have kept some folks away. next year plans are in the works for a potential game or two dedicated in the gentlemans memory.

I played in three games - Dwight Jones - Darkest Africa (The Sword and the flame variant) - once as Belgian and then as the Zanzibar Slavers - Next time I will put gun powder in the huts - (this would be an interesting game for Black powder.)


Game two (Notice the Chic Filet Cows laying wounded in the corral)
- Dwight allows you interesting options - I wounded the cows first -
and then we had a gorilla snatch one of the slavers and drag him into the brush .
by the end of the game the entire village was in flames and the
Zanzibars snatched a Phyrric draw out of the Belgians hands in the final turn of the game.
 Zanibar musketry killed off all the Nordenfelt gunners, 
As final charge saw 2 fanatic Zanzibar sword and shield
kill the cannon crew and its remaining defenders.


game one


Second and third games were with Bob Moon - ACW Peters Hill. (Union the first time - won a trophy for a fantastic charge) (Southern the second - almost won the game again but our Confederate Infantry charge in the center failed to sieze the day and reinforcements were delayed due to lost orders) While the Confederates cleared the right flank and almost captured three Union gun positions with an unusual flank charge. The Confederates failed to carry the day.




Tried too put on my own game that evening but by the time I got back from dinner everyone was pretty much set. Next year maybe.
