The Anglo-Russian War: Skirmish at the Border, The Conclusion
"Sahib. There are Russian forces in Chaimbellistan."
Continuing with our game of The Men Who Would be Kings: Bandits/Smugglers/Criminals are attempting to smuggle weapons, gold and other materials through the nebulous border area separating Asian Russian with the Princely State of Chaimbellistan. Captain Agorov of the 21st Frontier Guard Company has been ordered to stop them but his map is quite unclear where Russian territory ends and Chaimbellistan begins.
One bandit group has been destroyed but the criminals have not be caught yet and the British are concerned that Russian troops have violated the territory of Chaimbellistan . . .
Well that was a fun and fast paced game. The Russians did a superb job choosing two choke points and then holding them. The bandits could not decide which way to go and I think if they would have stuck with their original plan, they would have overwhelmed or at least pushed Sergeant Zaytsev's section out of the way. Now what happens?
