Africa Game - Winter War Champaign Il. Now with photos.
« on: January 30, 2018, 04:07:27 PM »
Ran a six player game using Africa Needs Steam rules last weekend.  French, British, German, American expeditions, A Zanzibari taxation mission and a village of slavers. The American takes the win as the “important personage” bagged his white rhino.  The scenario featured a cave which was sacred to the native player and also the location of King Solomon’s Mines. I’ll post some photos shortly.

I got to play the Americans and spent the game ignoring the rest of the teams (except the Zanibarians who I gave a well timed bribe to).  lol

It looked like a right spiffy game! Loved the terrain and the cards you made for the different factions.

Must have known I'd be dropping by what with starting with a photo of critters!  Well done, sir.  Double points per wild critter so 180 points to you.  And a bonus pack camel in there, too.  So, should it be kudos for the kudus?  Is that what's in that first photo?  Looks like but there are so many various gazelles and such in Africa... 

Oh, and the combatants and terrain look decent as well.   lol

Kudu is correct.  Here’s a bonus photo where you can see a Gorilla and a Lion Pride in the top right corner.

Beautiful terrain! The game looks great!
