well, this afternoon Niek van Diepen and Mathieu de Hingh were here and we started to play When Lions Sailed. THIS IS A GAME BY Joe Miranda for Strategy &Tactics magazine
it is a four plyer game about Europen Expansion inthe 17 th Century.The first thing we noted "it's all about the money!" Everything costs money, which is scarcw, so collect those Treasury Fleets and get them to the home ports, guys! as an example it not only costs money to outfit your ships and raise and maintain your regiments, but also to mmove them.The Dutch player has an advantage here as he begins with a full treasury. as I played the SPaniard I hsd a great deal of work and did not get very far..
this is aninteressting game that I muust play more often.
greetings from gaming Frank
Thousend times thanks!
To all the followers of the blog, to anyone who has been supportive of Frank or us in the last months and especially after his untimely death we want to say thanks from the bottom of our hearts. In the week after his passing we received so much warmth, stories, care and love, hardly describable. To us it was a very precious and valuable week and it was so good to have Frank at home where so many of his friends could visit him. And all the help, stories and info shared in that week led to a beautiful goodbye ceremony on a beautiful sunny autumn day. For those of you who could not attend, or those of you who wish to reread the funeral speeches, we publice them here (in dutch and english) with some pictures in grateful memory of, and tributed to Frank.We will miss him dearly, thanks for being with him and with us, one way or another,
On behalf of my family and his closest friends, Esther
