a challenge to the graybeards from
the rugrats ...
Apologies to Dan's World for stealing that headline. The younger
set used to enjoy taking it to the old folks in crokinole but
now that has gone away so Juniors GM Jim Doughan has decided
to stir up trouble in another way. It's not enough he embarrasses
grognards in Breakout Normandy ... he's determined to
humiliate them further by challenging them to send forth a champion
to do battle with his junior champ.
The kids have been playing this Reiner Kneizia Classic at
WBC for years. Now it's your chance to see if you can outwit
them! We'll play one round to get us to an an even field and
then its Single Elimination from then on. If both players agree
before hand they can play with Deluxe rules. Adult winner plays
the children's champ for all the marbles! No sore losers!
The game is a quick playing (30-minute) two-player Stratego-type
game based on characters from Middle Earth whose identities are
hidden at start. The play of special cards resolves combat.
Jim will also GM the Juniors version of the game in Heritage
for those 12 and under on Friday at 2 PM to crown his little
champ with the honor of taking down the graybeard champ.
