I have decided that I'm going to make another change to my Six By Six Challenge choices, even at this late stage, with less than five months to go.
My original selection included Black Powder, which I quickly abandoned; a good job, since our club seems to have mostly abandoned it these days as well. I swapped it for the new Nordic Weasel 'Scum of the Earth' rules. These had potential for the kind of small-scale game I like to play, as well as being versatile enough to cover a range of periods.
However, you will know from reading this blog that I have recently become entranced by the Lion/Dragon Rampant system. These are similar in scope and style to Scum of the Earth and, I confess, I prefer the way they do things. So I have decided to drop Scum of the Earth (and the two games I've already played as part of the challenge), and replace it with The Rampant System. However, to be fair, I have decided not to retrospectively count any games I've already played as part towards the challenge. In fact, doing so would actually conclude that particular entry straight away, which is hardly the done thing.
So: out goes Scum of the Earth. In comes Lion Rampant, Dragon Rampant and Pikeman's Lament.
The loss of those two games I'd already played now means I have to fit in at least two games of something else this month in order to maintain my pace in the challenge.
