So to wet the appetite, as they say, I can report that I managed to run my game and play in Steve's which made for a highly entertaining afternoon.
My offering was to run HMS Shannon vs USS Chesapeake in their 1st of June 1813 showdown during the War of 1812. This being the 200th anniversary year of this famous action where the Shannon captured the Chesapeake in just 15 minutes of bloody action.
You'll have to wait for the game report to find out what happened, but fun was had by all and the "Eight Bells" rules app performed very well.
