Join us for a weekend of WWII gaming set in the Africa theater hosted by Graeme, using a set of custom rules.

As such I'll hand over the Graeme to explain the basics!

The Rules, in a nutshell.
Jack's War is an 'action counter' driven set of rules which breaks up each player's phase into six sub-phases, each of which represents ten seconds of combat time.
Each sub-phase is alternate, and driven by a series of 'permitted action' counters.
They are designed with speed of action in mind, but also aim to represent the chaotic, unpredictable nature of combat.

The Games:
Sat 7th April / 11am - 16:00(ish)
"What's in the box!?"
Axis assault against Allied prepared positions on the Tobruk perimeter.

Sun 8th April / 11am - 15:00(ish)
"Run Ramcke, Run!"
Following the Axis defeat at El Alamein, Ramcke's Fallschirmjäger Brigade are cut off and dispersed. One beleaguered section, having stopped briefly in search of supplies at a remote train halt, find themselves surprised by an Allied platoon and are forced to make a hasty defense!

Participation.
Anyone wishing to take part can simply turn up, as all the models and terrain will be supplied but ideally we'll be looking for one main commander and a subordinate for each side.
