With the “Mother of All Battles” taking place this weekend in Sylvania, New South Wales, our very own swagman Ben Fiene will be camped by a billabong running a game of Chain of Command on Sunday from around 0900 to 1500.
Ben told Lard Island News “Our game will transport the players back to the claustrophobic hedgerows and fields of Normandy in the hot and dusty summer of 1944. Players will get the chance to command British Infantry or Parachute platoons, and German infantry or Panzergrenadiers in a variety of scenarios and with a large choice of support options.” Sounds like a great day of gaming lined up!
