Trench Raid Game
I think all the northern European members must, wisely, be on their summer holidays, but being Americans, we never take vacations ;). Yesterday we played a WW1 trench raid game in 54mm. The very simple rules are in Wargames Illustrated Issue 235. Four players each had five miniatures, either British (defenders) or Germans ( raiders). The rules, as I said, are very beer and pretzels simple, but they do allow for exciting moments like being able to pick up a thrown hand grenade and tossing it back. The game moved along so quickly that we had time to play it twice, each time with very different results.
