We met at Tea + Victory on August 2nd where we tried out the What a Tanker! rules from Too Fat Lardies. William offered to host, originally using his 28mm tanks, but the sheer number of attendees (11, one of our highest turnouts in years) overwhelmed his ability to use his 28mm toys. In best Houston Beer and Pretzel Wargaming tradition, Rob volunteered the use of his available 15mm Western Desert themed tanks and we were off to the proverbial races.
On July 12th we witnessed a major crisis in the South China Sea. Using a variety of ship models and the Bulldogs Away rules, we had escalation of tensions from collisions, fire hoses, failed morale, then gun fire, and finally missile shots. End result, Vietnam and China each lost a missile boat, almost every other craft was damaged. Hostilities ceased under the watchful eye of the USN setting up a potential sequel game. The important Chinese supplies were burned up in a fire on the Da Qing.
Thanks for running this game, Rob.
