6mm 10mm pinboard project - final update

The quest to get a figure game into a small playing space (a pinboard) and keep game storage low, has continued, but at last has taken a direction that leaves me happy to conclude these project posts. The past month has been busy with three quite different gameboards being assessed, a working set of home grown WWII rules tested, the painting and basing of two forces gaining ground and some terrain bits added.

Readers who want to see the three previous posts to get some context of how this project has evolved can use the following links.

Hold Fast - Eastern front 1941 - 42

Hold Fast from Worthington Games is a strategic level look at the German / Russian conflict between June 1941 and January 1943. It is a 2 player game using blocks, but it can also be played solitaire. A low complexity design with monthly turns, the game is the first of a series of WWII campaign games from Worthington Games.

This post will take a close look at the system and highlight some game aspects by way of an AAR.
