Last night saw my first game of Sharp Practice 2, a French and Indian War clash of 50 points. I'm always late to party rules wise but have to mention that I was very impressed with SP2, extremely enjoyable... more of the same please!
Pictures below show the main highlights of the French victory, aided by exceptional dice rolling on the French part and equally exceptionally bad luck with the dice on the British part. Once the Iroquois had killed the leader of the British Highland Light infantry it was only a matter of time before the leaderless remnant were wiped out. The French Regulars performed magnificently and with the support of the Canadien Milice halted the British Regulars advance, and with British Morale collapsing the game was concluded as a French Victory.
