Five of us met last Saturday to play The Napoleonic Wars. It was fun watching Nick (as France) storming through Austria and getting to Moscow in 1807. I got Wellington into Madrid but disappointingly the Spaniards refused to submit. Then general stinginess about cards among the rest of us left Nick getting a lucky game-end at that point for a crashing victory.

But there was an argumentative atmosphere around the table, for some reason. Perhaps it was me, but I think I'll be taking a rest from multi-player games for a while. A few quiet 2-player wargames with a civilized opponent might restore my faith in the Way of Nimrod.....
