    Nice AAR, thanks for including how BBB could work within such a small setting! When I first read your topic title I thought perhaps you had gotten into the liquor cabinet a bit early.

    Nice write up. I must admit I had never heard of this battle (or the war for that matter) so it made for an interesting read.  Good-looking game as well, though I am not sure about the smilies.  Makes it look like a rave rather than a battle.

    Sad faces might have been a bit more appropriate.

    Nice looking game, thanks for sharing it. 🙂

    I thought that was a very clever way to handle a battle that is pretty small by BBB standards.

    That is a beautiful looking game. Very well done!

    Smiley Faces? Yes I do enjoy the odd rave now and again although it’s taking me longer and longer to recover from an all-nighter

    And there’s me worrying about a man on a horse on the roof of the stable

    Hopefully it’s given you some food for thought – a good rules engine should open up a world (or worlds) of possibilities

    General Slade – my parents disapproved of the Beano, the Dandy and the Victor – I was brought up on Look and Lean and Ron Embleton’s amazing illustrations within those pages. That’s where my fascination with Mexican history began.

    His Pioneers and Heroes of the Wild West was one of my favourite books when I was young. 🙂
