I’d had SeaFall on my radar for a while; I’m intrigued by age of sail type games, but there are few that really look good. Blackbeard by GMT. Merchants and Marauders by Z-Man Games. Plenty of others out there that there isn’t room to mention here. The point is, from my perspective, this looked good, despite it being a legacy game. Of course, “legacy game” meaning “you have to rip your sh*t up to play it.” Even so, in my mind, if it tells a good narrative it would be worth a purchase. But at its high price point, I just never bothered.

There are some battles in history that draw a certain respect due to the adversity faced.
The 6 Day War with an almost defenceless Israel and rapid, massive deployment turning certain defeat from a larger enemy into an unexpected victory.
Victoria Cross II
The Battles of Rorke’s Drift and Isandlwana
The Falklands Conflict where a numerically superior, entrenched invader was ousted by a smaller force at the absolute limit of it’s supply chain, with minimal air support.
This game contains two others – The Battle of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift. I have to forget the imperialism that was going on at the time in order to not feel guilty about my respect for these battles.
Isandlwana was a small professional British force (circa 2000 troops), well armed with artillery and arrogant commanders facing a much larger (circa 15,000) Zulu warriors.
Rorke’s Drift was an even smaller professional British force (circa 150) with decent commanders facing a smaller enemy force than was at Isandlwana but still considerably outnumbered by their enemy (circa 4000).
