After a busy morning, pushing large amounts of Napoleonic flavoured lead around my kitchen table, it was time to retire to the lounge for a cold drink and a in-depth discussion on how one could best tweak the rules to one’s own advantage. With neither of us making much headway in the rule bartering department a second game was suggested. A small dessert game to follow the main course so to speak. A quick game of Dux would round off the days gaming nicely.
While rustling up the required figures the conversation turned to the fact that we only ever play this game in a standard battle format with minimal terrain. So it was duly decided that we would break from tradition and take the game to the next level. Galvanized into action at the thought of something new, one of us proceeded to read scenarios from the back of the book while the other rummaged around in terrain boxes. One hill and two trees later, with the afternoon sun starting to melt our brains and enthusiasm we declared operational success, honour was satisfied, it was time to deploy.
