Easter gaming at Diavivastis!

With friends organised via the Diavivastis Facebook page, we got together for an evening of war-games at the hospitable Kaissa Peristeriou. We played a game of Kiss me Hardy, and I introduced them to To the Last Man, a Theater level war-game for the Western front in World War 1.

In Kiss me Hardy Yiannis and Panagiotis were given command of  two British 74 guns ships, the HMS Thunderer, and the HMS Revenge. Against them I took command of the 130 gun Spanish ship Santissima Trinidad. So a classical game of British pluck vs.  Spanish power.

The Spanish had the goal of escaping from the British, while the British had the usual; "sink-capture-drive from the seas" the enemy ship.

The opening scene. The Santissima is close to you, the two british ships further back.
