With the new house and the holidays I have not been able to schedule a Bloody Broadsides game in December. January is a different matter. I will get with Mike Stover and pick out a good Sunday afternoon for Bloody Broadsides.

AAR Bloody Broadsides from Jan 12, 2020.
Location: Generation X game store in Bedford TX.
Forces: Balanced fleets; 100 Gun Britannia, 80 Gun Canopus, 74 Gun Ajax, 74 Gun Revenge, 74 Gun Jutland (Danish) and 74 Gun Skjold (Danish) (Danish ships provided by Grant Johnson).
Versus
100 Gun Imperial, 80 Gun Bucentaure, 74 Gun Achille, 74 Gun Mont-Blanc, 74 Gun Swiftsure, 74 Gun Monarca

Core result-British and Danes kicked our butts. The game was interestingly odd in there was just one critical hit which was the loss of one mast to the up to that point undamaged Ajax. Thus did not have any immediate effect on the game.

The British and Danes rolled much better wind randomization at the start of the game so they took the wind gauge. After turning under our French Spanish fleet was unable to cut out any of the enemy ships, they were not able to do this either.

We had just two collisions and no ships becoming fouled...in a way it was an oddly "Calm" battle.

Here is a pic of the players and one of the battle fully engaged.

I am cancelling Bloody Broadsides on March 22nd at Generation X. Another casualty of the Coronavirus.

Better safe than sick. 🙂
