…because I have some really bad luck. Take this past weekend for example. South Africa is having a drought and the province of Gauteng is in the middle of a heatwave so I’ve not been sleeping well. For some reason, last Saturday, I was up early. I don’t know why but I can get up early on a Saturday but never on a weekday. I head to the bathroom to wash up. There’s no water. Not just my place but the entire neighbourhood, during a heatwave! On top of that, everyone in the house has exams coming up except me so whatever I do to entertain myself but I must not make a racket.
Memoir ’44 is a 2 player wargame, set during WWII. It’s very popular due to it’s easy to learn but very rewarding gameplay. I really wish I could get to play it more often but I’m a few hundred Km away from the nearest club that I know of.
So I was up at around 2am, on a Sunday morning deciding on a fleet list to field at a local, casual, Star wars Armada tournament. After going to and fro for a long time I re-read the rules WRT to initiative and objective cards and after it clicked, I cobbled something together.
