AAR Flying Lead

1/26/15. Flying Lead from Ganesha Games. Two games played with my son. I have had this game for a while, but have not played it before. My son was new to it, too.

My team moving forward using cover to best effect.

My son came right over the bridge, Took a big chance there. I mowed a few of them down with Combined Fire.

He had grenades, and I did not. I suffered accordingly.

Second game. I skirted the perimeter hoping to get into position before him.

Went at it hammers and tongs on the river's edge. I was in the open and he was in the buildings.

I was never able to get into a good position. He kept pounding the snot out of me.

I made good use of motivating the troops.

My son took to fighting from cover very well, much to my misfortune.

On their way into the building. Set up on the top floor and sniped and dropped grenades on me.

My sargent snuck into the first floor and set the building on fire. There was some hand to hand as the greenies bugged out.

More shots from above. I couldn't activate for nothin.

These guys just milled about and got shot. Not much help at all.

This is about the end of it. Sarge was able to slink around to the other side of the board. The private to his left kept everyone busy trying without success to kill him. Eventually, someone got a lucky shot.

I really like the Flying Lead ruleset and will probably bring it to the next con, which will probably be Havoc in Worcester Massachusetts in March/April. You can buy the ruleset at Amazon or at Ganesha Games. Use your Google Fu. Support Andrea Sfiligoi and other small press authors. You won't be disappointed.

AAR A Fistful of King Fu

1/25/15. Two Games of A Fistful of Kung Fu with my son at home. It was his first time.

We packed the board with terrain, Not too many straight lines. One protagonist and five mooks each. I took a Martial Arts Master, he took a Drunken Monkey Master.

The Drunken Monkey Master beat the snot out of the the Martial Arts Master. MAM got bounced into almost every piece of terrain he wound up next to.

Second game. I changed to Mr. Green, a Dim Mak Master. My son kept the Drunken Monkey Master.A few of  my mooks took their sweet time getting around the shrine and in a position to help me.

Once again, the Drunken Monkey Master beat the snot out of me, bouncing me off the building and the blade of the bulldozer.

Once Mr. Green went down, my mooks failed the morale roll to varying degrees. They tried to rally, but my son's mooks made short work of them.

All and all, good games, My son played pretty conservatively with his activations. Good use of his mook motivations. My dice just sucked that day.

Give A Fistful of Kung Fu a try! Support small press games like Andrea's, either from Amazon, Ganesha Games, or Osprey Games. You won't be disappointed.
