On March 5th, ODMS will assist the Hampton History Museum celebrate Hampton400 by running two games for the public. We decided that we will run an American Revolutionary War and American Civil War Game at this event.
We have decided to use a modified version of Neil Thomas' Wargaming: An Introduction and Napoleonic Wargaming. We picked Thomas' system because of its simplicity and felt it would be easy to teach the public.
Chuck, Carl, Scott, Eric, and Cliff playtested the system tonight at the Hanger. Thomas' system is very easy to pick up and be modified.
Chuck was the gamemaster for an American Revolutionary game with Carl and Cliff playing the Americans and Eric and Scott playing the Brits. The players picked up the game real quickly and in the end it was an overwhelming American victory.
