English Civil War Megagame
On Sunday Harley and I attend the megagame event held down here annually- Last year it was ACW but this year it was the English Civil War.
Harley and I chose to be royalists and stood up to defend the king against parliament and its wicked ways. The rules where modified Black Powder. to sum up the objective of the day here is the blurb from website:
Rules: Modified Black Powder (rules will be explained on the day…no prior Knowledge needed)
Sign up: firstname.lastname@example.org
Optional: 28mm 4 regiments of foot or Horse (16-20cm frontage per regiment)
2011 Mega game is on Sunday 29th of May. The game will consist of 10-16 linked battlefields which players will fight over throughout the day. Players will command a brigade each, which will be sent by either the King or Parliament to far flung fields to do battle. In most cases players brigades will form larger armies and will thus generate large multiplayer battles. Once a force breaks it will retire and the victor will have the option to move to another linked table to help nearby forces or to "advance on London". Victorious players will also receive bonus cards which can be played in subsequent battles to improve one unit. Eg: terrifying charge which is good for one charge.
As with previous Mega Games the aim is not so much a simulation but more a cracking good fun day!
