Dude, you are only about an hour and a half from where I am! If it weren't for the plague I would be crashing your party right now.  8)
We're drinking sangria right now in an Italian place in town. Throw on a mask and head on over!

I actually don't really like games.

He's probably well into a refreshment and shouldn't be driving.

Being able to Google shit better than your clients is a legit career skill.

Which isn't a bad state to be in. Also why I'm pleased with the lovely bus system here.

I LOVED Williamsburg Panzerde. Except for all the walking we did there. Also they have damned fine Chicken Wings in the restaurant there, called Gunpowder Wings I believe. Also loved Jamestown and Yorktown too, great places to visit.  :bigthumb:

Speaking of Horse & Musket IV, has anyone heard anything about the release date? It was originally slated for June but that didn't happen. I really, really want to send Hollandspiele some of my hard earned money.  8)

It's either going to be just before or just after CSW Expo (though there may be some copies at the CSW Expo for sale even if the general release date comes after). Just got the proof copies of the new editions of all five games yesterday. New counters, new rulebooks, new player aids -- it's been a tremendous amount of work and it's gonna be nice finally getting it out there. And I'm in love with the new two-inch box for the new edition of the base game.

Sounds great. I played H&M (just the PnP version)  a lot, so this will be very welcome.

Horse and Musket. (H&M)

The very popular game series designed by Sean Chick and published by Hollandspiel.

So far in the series, we have;

Vol I – Dawn of an Era 1683 – 1719
Vol II – Sport of Kings 1722 – 1747
Vol III – Crucible of War 1755 – 1762
Vol IV – Tides of revolution 1768 – 1796

In addition, there are now three scenario books, one covering Vol's I, II and II, and a scecond one with more scenarios for Vol's I, II and IV, whilst the new third one has twenty scenarios from 1639-1796. I also just noticed on BGG a call by the designer asking for submissions for the next scenario book.



For completeness, we'll include 'Horse and Matchlock – Prelude to an Era' 1620 – 1677.
So, lots of gaming scope here, and a system which seems to lend itself quite well to using minatures, especially when used with hex terrain, such as the Kallistra system.

I should also add that the base game and expansions are now in the process of being reissued to incorporate rules revisions and some changes to counter graphics; these games are identified as being the REDUX versions.

As usual, we ask; 'Who has it, who's played it, what do we like/dislike about the system, etc'
