Nick in Launceston -- more Crescent and Cross

For the first time in a long time, there were more Historical games than fantasy / Sci-Fi at the club!

Nick vs Rod in Crescent and Cross.

Nick was Saracens.  Rod was a military order.  The Saracens played a maneuver game, and were slowly picking off units of the military order.  Rod charged into the center of the Saracen line with a unit of sergeants, and they beat up a poor unit of Saracen infantry.  But, more importantly, the Saracen infantry were supporting the Saracen warlord.  The Warlord suddenly found himself in range of the Crusader warlord, and he had to charge, but had no support.  The end was predictable.

Doug and co were playing a WWII skirmish game. They got in about 6 games in the time it took us to finish one SAGA game -- and SAGA is quick!!!

Meanwhile, somehow Dennis's Russians got to Normandy, where they walked over Ben's 21st Panzer force. Both forces were works of art
