I think I played the game 5 or possibly 6 times during the day, with a full range of results. As far as I could tell everybody enjoyed it. Masses of positive comments, so thank you for those. I only took a couple of shots for the record, and sadly didn’t have time to really look at any of the other games. Slightly frustrating as some lovely ACW on show.
The game in situ
The game itself really only takes place beyond the barbed wire the rest is ‘eye candy’
The german Fallschirmjager have landed early morning with the residents of Wear Bay Road going about their business
There is a Martello tower used during the war as an observation post
One of the few new additions for the show a Mk1 Bofor anti aircraft gun there were several on the actual site
The game in action
The scores were roughly equal although as I play to ensure the participant enjoys it the Germans had the upper hand except when I can’t help rolling sixes all the time. ........thanks to my helper Steve I also picked up a good selection of loot from the bring and buy plus a couple of bits I grabbed towards the end.
