Had a good game of Triumph & Tragedy set in the NWF, loosely based on the TSATF scenario "the Patrol" and inspired by this Last Stand Dan post. The idea is that a British patrol must repair a sabotaged telegraph cable within a small village while the dastardly Pathans come down from the hills and cause them havoc. Unfortunately I had to guess on the exact numbers of Pathans compared to British and rightly ballsed it up! The Brits made short work of the Pathans and were never truly threatened. To add injury to insult the Bengal cavalry reinforcements arrived on turn 1, the ancient Pathan cannon exploded on the first shot and when a furious mob of tribesmen finally did swarm the British screw gun, the wily Lieutenant chose to detonate the explosives he had hidden there, denying them the satisfaction. All in all a fun game with need of some tweaks to make it playable.
