I ran two games - on Friday night my suddenly again topical 'Out on a Limb' about UN Arms Inspectors which was originally seen in 2003.

|Thought, bluff, cunning and bewilderment. All on the faces of the players!|
|The diabolical plot - uncovered at last!|
I then played in John Curry's 'Target for Tonight' as the navigator (god help us) in a Lancaster which zigzagged it's way across Europe before missing the target with a huge bomb. I still say we must have destroyed something...
On Saturday morning I was lured into playing Tom Mouat's game which had originally been prepared for a certain unit of the British armed forces. The Brits were trying to extract their nationals from an entirely fictional port city while wicked terrorists got in the way. I, of course, was a terrorist...

|the faces of terror - no acting required!|
In the afternoon I ran my Somme game - as seen previously here and here. More on this in a later post.

After dinner I enjoyed John Curry's 'Random tales from professional wargaming'. Somewhat to my surprise, I merited a mention!
This was followed by Jim Roche's singalong session.
Sunday morning saw John Armatys and I running the Ideas Exchange session which as usual threw up several useful ideas.
Then it was off to Bob Cordery's very informative talk on self-publishing before packing the car and chairing the WD AGM.
As has been the case for many years, there were at least six sessions I wanted to attend but couldn't. I blame whatever bungling oaf arranges the timetable....
