Age of Sail - Brit v French 1800's at Steve's

  • Steve Robinson's House

    8226 Clifton Farm Court, Alexandria, VA (map)

    38.733827 -77.077162

  • It has been awhile since I have but on a sailing type naval game.   So here it is.  The Republic of France has directed the admiral of Toulon to sortie out of the base and engage the British blockade.  Can the Republic's fleet crush the Anglo-Spanish fleet? 

    We will be using 1/900 scale ships.  The number of ships and types will be scaled depending on the interest. 

     

    The rules can be found at

    Sincerely,
    Steve R.

    So DC is as unprepared to deal with snow on the roads as Central Virginia? I'm going to stay close to home; I don't like driving I-95 in clear weather; both my wife and I need to work Saturday morning, and I may need to shovel the drive. So, I'm not going to make it--as much as I enjoy sailing model ships around on the tabletop.

      Okay, so FCPS has now announced a two-hour early closing due to expected weather. If it is expected to be that bad, then as much as I hate to miss two in a row, and as much as I REALLY hate to miss good nautical action, I'm afraid discretion must be the better part of valor tonight.

      Guys, just canceled the game. I will try to put on an Age of Sail type game for March. Take care. Sincerely, Steve R.

    Steve, what's the inclement weather plan? There's a 90% forecast for snow, and if this morning is any indication, it'll be chaos and mayhem as usual for the metropolitan DC area.

    Also, the link to the rules does not seem to work.

    Steve, I have a good buddy who is very interested in attending. He shares my interest in Nelson's navy, and perked right up when I mentioned this game. I've told him to join the meetup and RSVP before slots run out. His name is Dan, so keep an eye open.

    What rules are you planning to use? Whatever the rules, I haven't played a historical age-of-sail game for years, and I really want to attend this particular event.
