Saturday 29/02/20: QMG and Libertalia   Leave a comment

Phil, Darryl and Alex played as the allies versus Bruce, and Two Mikes as the Axis.

Prelude caused the British to start in West Europe and Germans adjacent to Russia in East Europe.  Japan had the sea of Japan.  Over the game Italy and Germany held their own whilst Japan sailed triumphant unopposed in the Pacific.  Kamikaze pilots put paid to Pearl Harbour and USA moved west.

Eventually Russia and the allies wore Italy and Germany down and begun to take keys and force VP losses in Europe with bombing.  So by the late war they began to take an unassailable lead.

Next  Libertalia.  Phil took an early lead but made himself a target.  Bruce was close behind.  In the final turn Phil left himself exposed to a monkey shifting curses by playing his captain and Bruce did just that causing him to lose 18VP!  This left the way open for Darryl  to grab a victory!

So Darryl was the winner over both the games indeed!
