|French & Indian War fun for the whole family!|
I ran two sessions of my French & Indian War skirmish game, Song of Drums and Tomahawks, at Advance the Colors 2016 two weekends ago. Both games were completely full with six players. Everyone seemed to have a good time. Since most people have read earlier blog posts about this game and setup, this entry will be mostly photos.
The event has 3 one-on-one scenarios taking place simultaneously, as the Indians launch a raid into Ohio to drive back the frontier. For some reason, I did not take many pictures of "They Died in the Smoke," but there are plenty of others of the other two.
A small settlement deep on the Ohio frontier is raided by Indians on the warparth
|Frontiersmen take cover and fire as Indians close in for the attack|
|Tribesmen use the cover of the settlers own fields and fences to move closer to the defenders|
|Not knowing where the raiders will appear, the frontiersmen must watch all sides of their settlement|
|A group of Indians use the cover of a log cabin's walls to enter the settlement|
|The settlement leader keeps a wary out for signs of the raiders at the start of the skirmish|
Wagon Train Through Peril
An extended family loads up their wagons with women and children and tries to make it through to local blockhouse
|"Here they come!" As feared, Indian raiders lay in wait along the family's path to the blockhouse|
|As muskets are discharged, combat becomes brutal and bloody with tomahawk and knife|
|After more than two years of running my game, I get more and more repeat players all the time!|
|And for only $15, you too can enjoy fast and bloody skirmishes (available through our website)|
