    Obviously I am biased as I ran the game, but I assure you no money changed hands … I had the pleasure of introducing my Hungarian friend Péter Bayer to his first ever miniatures wargame. He’s written a very witty and entertaining report here.

    It’s well worth a read, regardless of whether you’ve any interest in the historical battle itself (Pákozd, from the Hungarian War of Independence of 1848-1849) or the ruleset we used (BBB).

    Not a period or a rule system I currently have any interest in so I very nearly didn’t read the AAR. Would have been a big mistake!

    An excellent read, a fascinating and tightly fought game and some interesting thoughts on wargaming in general and this game in particular.

    Thanks for posting

    Lovely AAR – my favourite sentence must be, “He is a proven commander who honed his skills in hundreds of – simulated – battles.”

    Arm chair general a man after my own heart. Thanks for sharing this as I didn’t know too much about BBB, looks like an interesting set of rules.

    Thanks, guys, glad you appreciated being pointed towards Peter’s work. He is a very talented chap!

    A sort of tangential update to this: the scenario I ran for Peter was not only his first, but also the first in the newly published book of scenarios for the 16 largest and most important battles of the Hungarian War of Independence:

    “Bloody Big Hungary ’48 Battles!”

    I hope this is of interest to some fellow TWWers.
