Long time readers of the blog may recall that Thanksgiving is a time where I get to play Dexterity Games with my family! Normally, we play Total CARnage but this year I came prepared for something different. I brought my plastic Cowboys and Indians for some games of High Noon. Perhaps it wasn't the most appropriate game for the season, but we had tons of fun!
This won't be a battle report per se, as we played about 5+ hours of High Noon of the course of a couple days. I wasn't even involved with all the games that were played as once my relatives had the basic rules, they went on about it on their own. I only got involved in a handful of games myself. Do not worry, we all were wearing masks and socially distanced, a 6 foot table makes that much easier.
However, I will add a few phots and some comments that I can. The lighting isn't always the best because we were in a sun room (with cracked windows for air flow), but it is better than nothing! We played a variety of scenarios from the book, including an Indian Raid on the town, a shoot-out, guarding the Jail, Rootin' Tootin' and more! There were multi-player games and one-on-one match-ups through out the day.
Mean Joe Greene and his Outlaw Band roll into town for a bit of a hijinks. However, Sheriff "Cool Hand" Luke and his Posse are there to to rain on their outlaw parade!
Here, the Dakota lay siege to the town of New Ulm in the Minnesota River Valley. The citizens bravely defend the town. Despite having the edge in technology, the Dakota swarm into the town and past the initial line of defenses. The residents are forced to fall back.
A Dakota with a Long Rifle manages to snipe a resident of New Ulm from a pretty good distance while they were in cover! Not bad shooting/flicking!
