The Rejects & Broadside 2012


The Rejects got together last weekend to playtest our game that we'll be demonstrating at Broadside 2012 this Sunday. As you can probably tell from the photo above the game is from WWI. We will be trying to
re-enact part of the Battle of Amiens in 1918.
In the playtest game we all played the part that we will be playing in the demo game, without giving too much away you can see my tanks took a pounding from the massed German artillery. It was a damned hard slog getting across the field, but you'll have to wait to find out if we made it or not. I just hope that John who was on the German side keeps up his wonderful dice throwing skills. Five 1's on the trot is a Reject record, he he he!!!
Hopefully we'll see some of you there!!!!



We'll be hiding in the red circle.

    2. What, that's you done till Sunday morning? You're both still breathing? huh. And to think I'd stopped believing in miracles the year I found "Father Xmas" lying in his own piss behind the Jani's shed at the primary School Xmas Disco back in 87!

      (I'm making up life events again for comedic effect, by the way).
