Limey Yank Games

July 2014

Well, June was fun. A week in Tempe for CSW Expo, meeting old friends and making new. Got to play COA's Battles from the Age of Reason series and Toulon 1793 got its last pre-publication public playtest (expect to see it published later this year). This was then followed by the wedding of Natasha (my daugther and your webmaster).
 
We're now into July and 199 years after Napoleon was exiled to St Helena, you can see evidence of his continued impact through the very Napoleonic theme of this month's featured games. We have the first two expansions from GMT's acclaimed 'Command & Colors: Napoleonics' series, my own Toulon 1793 (note the new cover design) and the current issue of War Diary magazine which this month features articles on the 1812 campain and godd old Toulon - almost bookends to the great man's career.
 
Things have been rather slow on the submissions front for this month but I suspect this is a temporary lull.
 
Those that know me will be stunned to hear I'm selling part of my collection; a bit of an MMP clearout.

Registrations have seen a new lease of life which is very welcome; if you've not done so yet then please use the 'Register' feature at the top of the screen to do so - and remember to include a brief gaming bio so we know you're real.

I need just 27 more pre-orders Toulon. This will be the first game designed by LYG and will be published by Legion Wargames.  The game is also featured on BGG and, as of June, there is a review of the game available.
