On Sunday I braved high winds and terrible traffic to join the Rejects for a game in Posties Shed-o-War. However, for a change, our leader wasn't running the game, the honour instead falling to Reject Richard. He had brought his excellent figure collection along for a Seven Years War game using the They Died for Glory rules.

Detmold, 1759

Last Thursday, we got demand for a horse and musket game. I push idea to try another time Michael's Seven Years War rules and all agreed. We wanted  to check if the BUA rules working well. During our game we had two new players and they pick up the game very quickly and that prove that the rules are easy to pick, which was one of our conditions for the rules for that period.W ostatni czwartek część z nas miała chęć zagrania w grę z czasów konia i muszkietu. Podsunąłem pomysł, by rozegrać kolejny raz testową grę Michael'owych zasad Seven Years War i wszyscy się na to zgodzili. Tym razem byliśmy ciekawi zasad walk w budynkach i czy napisane zasady są dobrze napisane. Podczas naszej gry uczestniczyło w niej dwóch nowych graczy, którzy bardzo szybko zrozumieli jej przepisy. To tylko potwierdza, że zasady są bardzo łatwe dla nowicjuszy, czyli jeden z naszych warunków względem zasad do tego okresu.SCENARIO/SCENARIUSZ: Michael SchneiderUMPIRING/PROWADZENIE GRY: Michael SchneiderSCENERY/SCENERIA: SESWC
