Its been a while since I have had a game and this is partly because I only have access to a kitchen table which for some reason my wife wants to use for eating meals.
So in the last few weeks I have been looking at alternatives for quick set up and play games that can be played in a small space.
I have been looking at Neil Thomas One Hour Wargame rules and DBN. I have decided to first give DBN a go and this has been influenced by what Lee has been doing on his blog http://napoleonictherapy.blogspot.com/?m=1
So I dug out my old Napoleonic 15/18mm armies and picked enough figures for two 12 point armies. I spent sometime refurbishing the figures which included new flags, rebasing and a two coats of gloss varnish.
For terrain I kept it simple using one of my old mdf boards with some hills made by cutting up another board. I dug around in the shed to find some trees and a building. The roads were made in the mid 70s out of plasticard.
This morning I had a first game of DBN with my son Max. I am sure I got a lot of things wrong but the game was fast paced and completed in just about an hour. Max won.
