Today was our third and last session of ACW Black Powder. My two novice players got to the crisis point, and when a Confederate brigade routed, they realized that Price's army was in an untenable position. For kicks, they fought until bitter end, even after the Tyler, the Confederate commander, said he would pack it in to save the lives of his remaining troops.
|The Confederate left found itself flanked, and the shaky soldiers turned and bolted for safety. Here is the situation at the end of the game, before the remaining two Confederate regiments got picked up and put away.|
The kids had a good time. They have told me that their gaming sessions are a high point in their week. Next, we are going to do some Napoleonics, again with Black Powder. I'm looking forward to it.
