Raiders of the Lost Mask

The next game we played was a first play of the new Studio Tomahawk rules, Congo.  This was a great opportunity for Lenin to break out his extensive Darkest Africa collection and his brand new copy of the rules.

My "column" consisted of an Explorer with his reckless Adventurer chums along with a Retired Officer turned archaeologist supported by some soldiers and askaris.  We had discovered a relic, in this case a tribal mask and needed to get it to safety (it belongs in a museum!).  Whilst Lenin played the opposition - slavers and Baluchi with a few natives - who were sneaking up on our camp.

Here are a few photos from the game:








The Congo rules were very easy to pick up and gave a fun game - with plenty of opportunities for gratuitous film quotes!  They are beautifully produced and I suspect I'll be picking up a copy for myself.
