Other people's Portable Wargame battle reports: Some more English Civil War battles

Kaptain Kobold has been keeping the PORTABLE WARGAME flag flying high in Australia, and has recently fought two more English Civil War battles.

The first was the 1642 Battle of Southam (PORTABLE SOUTHAM) ...

... and the second was the 1644 Battle of Cheriton (CHERITON 1644 - A PORTABLE WARGAME DEMO).

The latter took place at Wollongong Library as part of a Games Day to celebrate International Games Week, and Kaptain Kobold kindly took along a copy of my PORTABLE WARGAMES book (amongst others) to illustrate his game.

It's thanks to people like Kaptain Kobold that my rules have become so popular, and its one of my regrets that I am very unlikely to ever meet him and thank him personally.

  1. Thanks Bob. You never know, I might make it back to the UK for a visit one day. No idea when ...
