Tonight the club played a game of 15mm Romans against Vikings using Harv's home brewed DBM variant "Pointy Stick". The game utilized a unique mechanic- both of the Generals were sequestered upstairs away from the gaming action.
Throughout the game, various Commanders would report the action from their point of view using a map of the scenario. After receiving orders, they would return and do their best to implement the tactics assigned.
