Cards for Ganges?
« on: May 15, 2020, 09:50:17 PM »
Hi All,

Can anyone tell me where I can find the cards for "Ganges" from WI 390?:

https://www.wargamesillustrated.net/shop/wi390-april-2020/

They're for the Thug-fighting mod of Congo.

I've asked WI but received no reply, and I can't find the download on their site.

Thanks.

I asked WI too and also didn't get a reply
Gary, Glynis, and Alasdair (there are three of us, but we are too mean to have more than one login)

I'm still waiting for my April 2020 mag. I hope it is just delayed in a Pandemic PO pile somewhere.

Good thinking! Thanks for the idea.

The piece was written by Nick Buxey.

He says also that in the past he has done a Congo mod for games in South America which he called Amazon.

I'd also like to get my lunch-hooks on that material.

I'll check the member list here and sing out if I find him.

Cheers,

There are a few Nicks, and one NickB, so I pinged him.

Of course if the fellow I'm looking for is using a handle -- like, say, Doctor Terror -- then I got nuthin'.

NickB has kindly informed me he's not the Nick Buxey we're looking for.

Well, Doctor Terror it is!

That's very kind of you. I still haven't found the Ganges ones yet!

I have asked Nick B if they are going to be made available through WI or similar.

I don't have a link for the cards (and would also be interested in them when they appear), but I have put together a page of links to various resources for games in Darkest Africa. There are other scenarios for Congo in WSS and WI. Always looking to add more.

Nick has replied that the cards have gone to WI, he doen't know when they will be published. I haven't even received my April WI yet although it was sentat the end of March.

Thank you Poiter50!
