Saturday 6 May; Vikings gone wild and QMG 1914   Leave a comment

Forst off Mike introduced Phil Alex DARRYL and Bruce to his new game of Vikings gone wild.  It was a four player game so he sat out! Turned out it was quite a long one.  Eventually Phil just managed to hold onto a slender lead and pip DARRYL at the post with bruce close behind.  Certainly a good game with lots of tactical card play choices and resource management.

Next Phil and Mike played the central powers of Germany and Austria in two fascinating games of quartermaster general World War One.  The others definitely found it hard going against the German war machine.  Bruce was Uk, DARRYL Russia and Alex France.  In both games Strosstruppen proved very strong allowing heavy blows against France.  The second game was definitely closer but central powers just made it to the twelve vp lead required for victory before Germany finally ran out of all cards.  Obviously a longer game would have been different.  Mustard gas in this second game really hurt Russia who was pinned back all the way to Moscow.  U.K. Saved Picardy but could not save Paris from occupation via Burgundy.  Lots of fun and fascinating as ever.  Austria even had an Adriatic fleet which garnered a few VP.
