Assaulting the Jailers….Game Number 76, Part 1.5

Something wicked this way comes….C.S.S. Tennessee heading into the fray.

Meanwhile, the U.S.S. Hartford and the U.S.S. Manhattan look to make the Confederate ironclad their next project…. ;-) 

For a variety of reasons, too tedious to mention, the first run out of this scenario was abandoned around game turn 3. It is never a good sign when one gets in a tangle over one’s own set of rules! In my defence I was kind of thinking ahead of myself in that I was using rules that had nt even been written down, let alone tested.

Anyways, all is now OK and so I shall be running the action over the course of the next day or so - and with the correct rules in place!

As a taster though, I have included the starting set up pictures - these are far better than the original, rather dull version featured in an earlier blog post.

On with the action!

It sounds as if you suffered from a case of looking a bit too far ahead and tripping over one’s own boots! We’ve all done it, especially when we are play-testing our own rules!

It’s good to know that everything turned out right in the end and you’re now back on an even keel! (I couldn’t resist using a nautical allusion!)

All the best,

Hello there Bob,

Absolutely right!

Nautical allusion noted - and appreciated!

All the best,
