Napoleonic Naval Game Report

The Napoleonic naval game at the club this evening was good fun. The rules we used were the excellent A+A Game Engineering fast play set Fleet Actions in the Ages of Sail and the ships were from the Navwar 1:3000th scale range.

The two fleets, one Anglo-Russian and one Franco-Spanish, consisted of three squadrons each. In the ensuing battle, one French and one Spanish squadron successfully engaged a single British squadron in close boarding action, whilst the other French Squadron distracted the remainder of the Anglo-Russian fleet.

The end result was a close run thing but probably went the way of the French and Spanish, although with a little more time the Royal Navy would have evened things out a bit. It was a fast paced and interesting game nonetheless. It certainly got me thinking again about the 1:2400th scale Tumbling Dice ironclads that I have lurking in the leadpile.

Unfortunately, I forgot to take my camera along, so there are no photos at the moment, unless some get posted to the club yahoo group that I can copy over to the blog.
