A roll of the Dice

Out of the Blue last night I had a game. I have been slightly obsessed with AK47 recently and am planning a campaign set round the French Union in the 1950's so the Balkans are really on the back burner. Sean my main gaming oppo suggested we have a Balkan wars game.
It was a strange sort of game as running late I accidentally left a box of Greeks and some terrain at home. So my Greek force was made up of odds and ends that just happened to be in the box I had picked up. Two field guns and 5 Battalions of inf, no machine guns or anything. I did have one big battalion of Evzone though which turned out to be worth their weight in Gold.They just refused to fail morale tests! Sean had a balanced force of 6 Battalions of Bulgarian inf, including 1 of Guards. A field gun and MG plus a small section of cavalry. The game was a head to head collision in a small Thracian town. The rules were Rapid Fire lite. We had a real fun time with very little input. Just the way it should be. The results are that I have dug out all my Greeks to try and get all the outstanding basing done and Sean is talking about Turks. Oh by the way the Greeks won.



  1. Sounds a great game Mike.What rules did you use? Any chance of piccies?
    Interesting campaign re French Union do tell us more...

  2. Hi Alan, Rules were a simplified version of Rapid Fire. Which I think work quite well for the WW1 era. Sorry no pics as phone had a flat battery.
    As for the French union games. The idea is to play linked AK47 campaigns based on the French army of the 50's. So Suez, Algeria and Vietnam.
    By the way I sent you a small parcel today.
    Cheers Mike

      Interesting period to do the French army .I am awaiting developments with interest...
