A small group of allied agents have been carefully tracking their way across the North African desert to one of the more remote settlements looking for the Relic of Artemis. Unknown to the Allies, a reconnaissance group from an Axis force have also been tipped of about the presence of the Relic in the area. Both groups enter the village at the same time ...
As this was our first game we decided to each have a warband of “Archaeologists”, but without a henchmen group. Each side comprised a Leader, Sponsor, Professor and three guards. The objective of the game was to retrieve the relic located in the centre of the board and escape to the board edge. A 3’ x 3’ board was used, with each group setting up in opposite corners. The terrain comprised a central ruined area with surrounding intact buildings.
The first few turns found both groups cautiously moving forward through the outskirts of the village.
A few opening pot shots were exchanged at maximum range whilst the Allied guards made their way into the ruined area.
The Axis troops had managed to enter one of the buildings and tried to take advantage of their elevated position.
With a mad scramble across the ruins of a past age, one of the Allied guards managed to grab the artefact, whilst one of his colleague managed to KO an Axis guard.
Conceding the game, the Axis group moved out of the area.
An interesting first game - looking forward to the next one - maybe some mummies or other nasties ...
