These are exciting times in the Dean family. Senior son (and Prince Palatine of Wachovia) is getting married on Saturday, and the family is converging on this area. Younger son William arrived in town over the weekend, and we were able to get in a couple of games yesterday.
William expressed a desire to command his NQSYW army of Wiegenburg, which he hadn’t been able to do for a couple of years, so we set up a quick scenario using A Gentleman’s War. In the first, we used the random army generation system, and decided that this looked like a hasty attack on the main body of an army while its cavalry was occupied elsewhere. So we agreed that the army of the Western League was attempting to prevent the Allies from starting a siege. Due to the random factors, I ended up with a nearly hopeless attack on a strong position and I quickly reached the agreed army breakpoint and declared a withdrawal.
