    One of the games played at the DWG this month was a Muskets & Tomahawks game set in the AWI as the Crown troops desperately assaulted a strongly held Rebel position.

    The new version of Muskets & Tomahawks gave a very interesting game with lots of decision points for the players and seemed to me to be an improved set of rules over the former incarnation.

    Very nice battle report.  Glad to hear some positive reviews of these rules, as like so many others, I picked them up during lockdown, but still haven’t tried them out yet.  They looked very promising after a read or two.

    I do have a long list of similar bought but not played rules that we are slowly making our way through.  So far we’ve tried Shadows of the Eagles and LaSalle 2, and enjoyed both immensely.

    M&T is further down the queue, but I have no doubt we’ll get them sooner or later.  Admittedly, as we are locked down again at the moment, probably more later than sooner

    I enjoyed the report and agree completely about the second iteration being an improvement. We play mostly F&IW and I really appreciate the natives having a balanced representation. In the heavily wooded areas of North America, they can be devastating.

    Hi Chaps,

    Thanks for your comments, and my impression of M&T2 after just one game is very positive, with a vast improvement on the previous incarnation by its ability to force lots of decision points on players in a game, which only ratchet up as the action increases and choices are forced to be made with the limited activation options available, not to mention the concern about allowing the opposition to take advantage of cards you are forced to play.

    I think the rules are a definite contender among the competitors for this level of horse & musket game and in the end ‘you pays your money and takes your choice’ as the saying goes, to decide which work for you.

    Cheers

    Cheers JJ, most helpful I was asking for a chap on the Loose Association of Wargamers who has the first edition but has miss placed the cards.
