(Special thanks to Jans understanding wife !!!) also a big thank you to Roy for helt with the transport and Henning to carying our heavy boards, appreciated.

Most of all a great Tanks to all that visited our game during the Salute 2017 day and gave good feedback on The Pikeman´s Lament rules in general and our Fort Mosquito game in particular. appreciated !!!

below some of my pictures from Salute 2017, first from our game and last from some other nice looking games I passed by during the day, unfortunate the camera on my phone seems to be giving up as many of my pictures was poor or I was to stressed taking them... any way here they are.

  11. Such a beautiful game with plenty of great details!
    Love the inclusion of Rambo! :-) I guess it was the prime motivator to the John Rambo character of First Blood that his 17th century ancestor couldn't stop the New Sweden colony from eventually being lost to the Dutch. :-D
    Its a facinating story though and really nice that you brought him to the table https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Gunnarsson_Rambo
