Just got back from Historicon where I had a chance to play in a Black Powder game. Kind of cool to be able to play instead of ref! It was a refight of the Battle of Eutaw Springs during the American Revolution. I think there were two of us who had played BP before, so I tried to be helpful without being obnoxious about it, I think I pulled that off. It was a very nice game, pretty figures and terrain. The net result was an American victory, so, as one of the American players I was pretty happy. It was an interesting example of what happens when people who no neither the rules nor the period fight a battle.... but I think all had fun. Tip of the hat to the guys who ran it!
