A Game of Setting The East Ablaze
« on: October 23, 2012, 09:02:06 PM »
I managed to get in a small game of Setting The East Ablaze last week while on business in Minnesota.  Alan was a gracious host and it was a fun game.





Take a look at my blog for the full story - or at least my version of it.

Chris is too kind.  For those of you that have not met him, he is a true Southern gentelman and was kind enough to sit through my first fumbling attempt at running a game. And I thank him for that.

Rules worked well btw, despite my repeated attempts to screw them up  lol

Splendid!  Current holders of the furthest north game using 'Setting the East Ablaze'.  Congratulations gentlemen!

I must admit that Alan has nearly convinced me to try this period out.  It seems a colorful and interesting period of history that I know next to nothing about.  Other than an excerpt of a book about the Mad Baron.

Thought you might.  I get ooh's and aah's from everyone when I trot that piece of terrain out

A fine looking game.
I wish I had time to paint some figures for this period.
Just not enough time to paint everything I would like.
