"Duchess Scenario" & SYWA Convention


As was mentioned today on Der Alte Fritz blog, this next weekend will see an EvE game at the SYWA Convention:
"The annual Seven Years War Association Convention is coming up this next weekend March 20 and March 21 at the Holiday Inn Downtown in South Bend, Indiana. I plan to host a small skirmish game on friday to resolve the predicament of the Duchess of Sachesen-Vindow from the Elector vs Empire group. Then on Saturday afternoon, Bill, Randy and I will be hosting a French versus British SYW game using our BAR rules."
While many of us (myself included) are too far away to attend, I heartily urge all who can attend to do so. After all, Friday night's game will determine the fate of an interesting story line . . . and, with luck, may see some vile Stagonian casualties as the Duchess of Saschen-Vindow attempts to reach Koenig Ludwig and avoid the troops of her estranged husband, Duke Peter, as well as a number of other forces.

But fully aside from that, all that I've heard over the years is what a wonderful gathering this convention is. Attend it if you can.

Ten Thalers says Von Mack makes off with the prize! Say....just how much is a Duchess worth these days?!

I'm anxiously awaiting the play by play (and blow by blow) description, and I hope plenty of pictures are taken and posted.
