Keith was playing the Hollandspiele edition.

A nice, balanced review of a play-through of Scheldt Campaign at Keith Mageau’s website:

Scheldt Campaign: long AAR

Dav was playing the Microgame Design Group edition.

Over at Web-Grognards, a very long (44 pages! and well tricked-out with good photos) After Action Report of The Scheldt Campaign, by long-time wargamer Dav Vandenbroucke.

Short answer, he liked what he played, and I’m very glad!

Also, at the end of the document Dav gives two simple formulae for an Excel spreadsheet so you don’t have to roll an actual bucket of dice to determine the number of hits therefrom.

Thanks Dav!

Over at The Players Aid blog, some friendly direction on what to get for Christmas:

The Scheldt Campaign is #9 on the list, so yeah, you should get one of those. Or more.

Others on the list are Liberty or Death and Fire in the Lake, and a new one on me that looks interesting, TheĀ Fog of War by Geoff Engelstein.

The First Minnesota Historical Wargaming Society, a board gaming group that has regular events, had its meetup on Friday, and The Scheldt Campaign got a good going over!
