Ready for the off!

Been busy on the site lately, added a bridge to be battled over.
We’ve walked through the game plan and think we have enough on the cards to keep both sides busy for the day. I’ve had to bring on a few of the locals so kit lending and look alike are on board but this event was never about having the correct kit or even period guns, it’s the gameplay that I’m hoping will make this event memorable.
Please note that toilet facilities on site are basic to say the least, but there is a resteraunt of the Golden Arches five mins drive away, should you need to go for a McPoo :shock:

Can I ask all those attending to bring a bandage for themselves. Usual hit rules, first hit is declared, fall to the ground screaming for medic or Sani, any member of your team can apply your bandage to your arm and you can declare back in. Second hit and it’s off to respawn you go.
Other than that it’s the usual rules for a skirmish, no ammo limits for the bolties, one mag per life for the smg, and although the mg will start with unlimited ammo, we may restrict that, on both sides, as the game goes on and ammo supplies run low.

Is the 1 SMG per side (officer) rule being adhered to?

Only asking as I'm happy to play with my rifle as long as I'm not cannon fodder because the opp side has turned up with 10 SMGs :)

Yes it is, that’s the point of a rifles game. One lmg per side one smg, the rest rifles. It may not be the officer with the smg, I may go out with just a pistol.

Brilliant stuff. I suppose 'rifles only game' vs 'as many rifles as possible' explains it :)

I'll be honest with you I was hoping for slightly more numbers and have been let down by some friends who for one reason or another can't make the event, but onward and upwards. I'm hoping you guys have a good enough time to build up a player base big enough to run another game in the future.
As part of AGS we can run big games, loads of bums on seats at big sites but I wanted to try to instil an atmosphere of tension and frustration with possibly a bit of fear thrown in. If it all goes tits up, then at least I tried.
:wink:
