Our club Wyvern Wargamers held a Saga tournament on Saturday, 22 players and prizes kindly donated by Gripping Beast. Saga had always been a casual game for me, something I could pick up now and again, as a result I hadn't taken the game as seriously as I should.
On the night before when I should have been reading up on the rules, I was looking at my copy of Deluxe General de Brigade I won on eBay. As a result I deserved the second to last place I got.
In truth, looking at the scores afterwards, I was unlucky as I did come close to winning the majority of my games, my dice luck was awful and I didn't have the knowledge of the game I needed. Everyone, including me, had a great time and this is certainly something we will do again - next time I will do better.
I did have some satisfaction in killing a warlord, a wiping out some other units, one of the highlights was one of my carts being charged twice by a warlord and forcing him back each time.
The day has also re-energised my enthusiasm for my many projects, my only problem is to keep focussed.
