Next up was PVO Strany, presented by Martin Rapier and myself. Again, I will devote a future post to this game. I had described this to players as 'A jolly lawn game about defending the Soviet Union from nuclear bombers' which set the less than completely serious tone. The game ran three times - with the Vulcan being shot down on it's final approach in the first, dodging MIGs on the second and then getting a pretty clear run on the third. That's why the city of Knustongrad can no longer be found on maps. The weather held during this session, with the first drops of rain falling as I packed away the last bits of kit.
