Second slot games will start around 300 pm. There is room for one more game in the second slot, so call out if you want it.


1) Game Title:  The Last Extremity,  February 8th 1884, Sudan  PETER HUME

Scale / Rules  28MM / the Race for Gordon. Number of Players 6 Description:  Tawfrik Pasha, the gallant Egyptian commander of the besieged city of Sinktat, has no more than three days supplies of food and only enough rounds for 20 bullets per man.  Having heard of General Bakers defeat days before at Trinkitat, Tawfrik decides he will make a break for it, as no one was coming to him he must go to them.  It’s a mere 20 miles to the safe city of Suakim.  Can he make it?


2)  Grotto of St. Michael   DAVID BONK
On December 19, 1944 forward elements of Team Cherry, deployed west of Longvilly, protected the retreating column of American trucks, tanks and men headed for the safety of Bastogne. Lt.

SECOND SLOT


3) Low Level Hell – BRUCE SCHAPER
Hot LZ.  Vietnam. Players will pilot one chopper over the jungles of Vietnam.  Their mission is to fly ammo and water to a beleaguered platoon and fly out the wounded. Cooperative game in that all players will fly the helicopters and the judge will play the Viet Cong.  20mm scale.  Up to 7 players can play.


4) Rules: Osprey’s; On The Seven Seas – Scale: 28-35mm
The fabled treasure of Captain Flint has long been talked about, but the talk now includes a rumor of where (no it isn’t Treasure Island).
Many years ago a ship was wrecked off an unnamed island. The ship’s name was never known, just one of many lost during a storm.
But the rats survived and are remembered, the island is now widely known as Rat Island.
Those that have landed on Rat Island, and survived, talk of giant rats, natives equally vicious and other horrors.

I have added a new Game Submission form which will make creating preliminary listings a lot simpler for the game scheduler. I’ve re-linked that form on the main Southern Front page (just click on Southern Front 2017 tab at the top of the website). I’ve additionally re-opened the pre-registration page. If you all find any errors on either page, let me know via email murdockpeter AT gmail DOT com.

You can get to the Pre-Registration and Game Submission forms via the main Southern Front page.

 

Chain Of Command Event at Hangar 18 this weekend.

Just an event reminder from the Yahoo mailing list from Bob E. – “I just want to remind everyone that Neal Smith and I are running a Chain of Command game this Saturday February 18 at Hangar 18 Hobbies in Cary, starting at 1 PM.

The scenario will be a Russian attack on the German outpost line in February 1945. Lots of infantry, not too many tanks.”
