I had a bit of a surprise last week, my No3 daughter Holly, started up a conversation about wargaming??? Now normally she slates her Dads hobby (just like her mum!) then much to my amazement asked she could have a game. Oh my God!!! So I had a chat with von Postie and a day and time was set. No4 daughter Nieve was feeling a little left out and wanted to come along as well. How could I say no??
Holly & Nieve
Holly wanted to " Do a Tudor's game" So Postie set up a simple Border Reiver game. It was the Girls v Dad. They played the Scots who recently plundered south of the border and were heading home with their ill gotton gains. While I played the English Lord who'd been plundered.
All Holly & Nieve had to do was exit the far end of the table with as much booty as they could.
While I had to stop them.
The girls picked up the rules very quickly.........perhaps a bit too quick???
The girls did the right thing and moved their loaded wagon full move, and took a few pot-shots at long range, missing all of them!
I charged forward with my Horse.
And won one fight and drew the other.
I won the next turn and charged in again with the rest of my horse, the girls did the same.
Both sides lost a few casualties
And it looked as though I was gaining the upper hand
I went in for the kill, and charged my leader into Nieve's leader, then also hit him
from the back.
And in typical Ray dice mode I got my butt whooped
Which equaled 2 very happy Little Rejects
