Last Sunday Craig, Garry, Bern, Gary and I met down at the Vikings Club in Lanyon to play two games. In the morning we played a quick game of L'Arte de La Guerre (ADLG) - see photos at the end of the post. In the afternoon we played a Black Powder ACW game using the scenario of the Battle of Newmarket 1864 from the Glory Hallelujah! supplement (pp. 164 - 169). Most of the lovely Perry figures belong to Craig and Gary. Above and below are photos of this game which the Confederates ending up winning fairly easily.

Here are a few photos of the quick 100 point L'Arte de la Guerre (ADLG) game we played in the morning with Etruscans versus Samnites. The Etruscans won again! Thanks to Craig, Garry, Bern and Gary for the fun games.
