The scenario was excellent, really difficult for both sides, but achievable. Look for it in a future TFL special, I can recommend it, but only if the two players do not know what their opponent has in his force.
Thanks to Ade for all his work in setting the game up, I thoroughly enjoyed it and am now looking at getting the forces needed to put the game on myself.

|Another look at the table.|
In the afternoon I played Tinstar, put on by Geoff. His presence had totally knackered my dice rolling by now and I couldn't hit a barn door. I fired 4 shots with a shotgun, which hits 5 out of 6 times. I hit once. Just once. Nathan didn't do any better as he and Pingu traded misses with their rifles. Unsurprisingly the evil sheriff managed to get his "witness" to the courthouse, but by then 5 out of 6 bandits were dead so it didn't really matter. I enjoyed the game though and the changes to the system have improved it. Keep up the good work Geoff.
And that's it. After an early start, a drive up punctuated by 50mph average speed cameras and some good games with excellent company, we travelled home. I have spent most of today recovering, but it was well worth it. Put me down for next year Ade.
