Death in the Dark Continent: First Game and Impressions
« on: January 20, 2018, 08:17:46 PM »
Hi All,

We finally got around to trying out first game with the rules.





While we enjoyed the game, we're not sure the new rules brought any significant improvements over Chris Peers' previous "In the Heart of Africa" rules.

As usual, more info and pics can be found on the blog:

Nice battle report Major 😉

I understand some your misgivings. I made a play sheet that might help. It has the factors laid out in all + and all - factors. Get it here.

Have a look at the Death in the Dark Continent tag. The rules might be worth a few more tries before deciding they’re not for you.
