The game played out much like our normal games...
Mharaid organising herself and her troops with typical efficiency and rolling most of the good dice...
I of course floundered around in my usual style and struggled to see any dice rolls over a 3...
|The initial set up... I used a 4ft x 4ft table as I could get everything in one shot with my iPad.|
|Names are fun and also make it easy to see who is who.|
|Mharaid's first move.|
|A nice orderly advance... Only Tom refused to move.|
Here we see Mharaid making good use of 'Group' moves... I failed miserably every time I tried to do this and in the end gave up.
|My men wandering all over the place... as usual|
|Mharaid presses on steadily... The yellow question marks show where the livestock is to be found...|
|A double fail... which this is... means that your turn is lost...|
So I went no where...
|Theo found something.|
|Jules ended the turn for me.|
|Fortunately Mharaid's Dino dice let her down.|
|Baptiste couldn't hit a farm from here.|
|Theo found Geese.|
|This is where we really got into using FaceTime... so we started moving along at a decent pace...|
I've taken a couple of casualties and Mharaid is herding lots of stuff towards her starting point.
|Even when Harry found a very angry goose...|
|It chased him dutifully in the direction he wanted to go...|
|A single red button means resting/wounded.|
|I continue to make stunning dice rolls.|
|The action moved towards the farm and a protracted fire fight breaks out...after a lot of misses Baptiste managed to shoot Dick.|
|Dicks demise |
|As Mharaid's men move towards the farm...|
|Baptiste gets his brains blown out... Three red buttons...|
This triggers a moral throw...
|Dutifully failing... Hugo, Henry and Theo don their chicken suits and do a runner...|
|Cluck! Cluck! Cluck!|
In the end he was easily out run and then spent the rest of the game visiting all his favourite trees.
This was really good fun...
We spread the game out over quite a few days and spent a lot of time laughing... mostly at my spectacular lack of luck...
I can see us trying this again...
All the best Aly
