    This was the SP2 game I ran at our GigaHistorical May Day event. It was based on the battle on the island of Guadaloupe in the 1759 campaign between the British and French in the Sugar Islands. I used Stuart Insch’s wargaming guide as inspiration. It was designed to be a 6 player game of Sharp Practice 2. As the French forces retreated into the interior, a Madame Ducharmey took it upon herself to defend her plantation. The skirmish took place on Feb 4th, 1759 on Basse Terre, Guadaloupe.

    Gorgeous game. I really miss the Atlanta historical scene and it is wonderful to see Gigabytes flourishing.

    Never wrestle with a pig. You both get muddy and the pig just likes it.
