Welcome to my blog. I have upwards of 100 projects in various stages of incompletion or total abandonment, so you may find something interesting. I try to cover everything I do, not just show the end result or what goes according to plan, so it's all about stumbling along in a roughly forward direction. I also write a lot of historical scenarios for Bag The Hun 2, which are developed here on the blog, along with lots of ideas for potential projects that will never see the light of day!

My five year old was pestering me to play a game this afternoon so I disappeared up the loft and found my old copies of Samurai Blades and Cry Havoc, which I'd stored away for a rainy day. He decided that Samurai and Ninjas sounded the more exciting of the two options and, as a result, we played out Scenario 1: Ambush from the scenario booklet. He won too!
I have to say it was great fun and the game has lost none of it's appeal in the twenty five years or so since I last tried it out. I used to play both Cry Havoc and Samurai Blades a lot when I was at school and, while they're very simple systems, they are very enjoyable. If you see a copy of Cry Havoc on Ebay then I'd thoroughly recommend that you put in a bid, although you can now download and print out all the maps, rules and counters for free!
This is the place to download the whole series of Cry Havoc games:
