Back to the Back of Beyond
After the Battle of Five Armies game the other day we were having a chat about what to do next week and one of the chaps suggested a game in the Back of Beyond using the Contemptible Little Armies rules. We haven't played this for ages, so there are some new players at the club who haven't had a go with the rules.
I'll be bringing along both my Bolshevik Third Workers and Peasants Shock Brigade and my Trans Asia Texan oil prospectors expedition team, so that there is a choice of forces to use. I suspect that we'll end up with a couple of parallel games but, if not, we'll run a multiplayer encounter battle with muggins as umpire.
It should be good fun either way and may well lead on to a bit of a revival of Back of Beyond at the club. I've always wanted to do at least one more army and have a half completed Japanese army that I'm thinking of selling on, so that I can concentrate on a British or Turkish force instead , so it would be good to encourage some of the new chaps to have a go!
