A year of living dangerously - Montrose’s Scottish Campaign of 1644-1645

I picked this up recently following an always dangerous recommendation from a friend (thanks Matthew!). It’s a campaign I’ve long been interested in, not least because a fair bit of the action is ‘local’ to where I grew up. 

It costs about £15 and the first (solo) play took just over an hour.

Lovely map and counters. 

Montrose nearly did it!
The game set up to play. 
Detail of the map. My part of the world!

I’ll no doubt have more to say when I’ve played it more.  In this first outing, Montrose came close to victory but basically ran out of troops. He did, however, manage the all-important sack of Dundee!

Sack of Dundee! An outrage.

£1.50 worth of damage?

Looks a most interesting game. A fascinating subject too.

Has there ever been a sack of Wigan?

Well worth the £15!

It says much that despite my biased solo play I still managed to have Montrose lose!

Well worth a look if the campaign is of interest.
