Falklands Game at Game Night

   At the last NC Game Night I put on my Falklands Scenario.  This was the third time I have hosted this game in the past month.  By far this was the best game with the most playability and the closest outcome.  The modifications we made to the rules really are working making the game much more competitive and more enjoyable to play.

   The spotting changes with the addition of the automatic spotting for units that stay in place and fire more than twice force players to make choices between maneuver and massing fire.  I think this really helped limit the power of the British Light Tanks and gave the Argentinians much more of a chance.  I think the British were also a bit intimidated by the addition of a 105mm Recoiless Rifle team to the Argie Order of Battle.

   Here are some photos of the game:

The very confident Argentinian team awaits the start of the British attack:

This was an overall good game.  I do want to make further changes to the fire combat system to simplify the game.  We only got through four turns during this game and it kind of leaves players unfulfilled to actually finish a game.  I really want to speed up play.
