Thoughts & Observations:
  • Once again, I used my crappy phone camera.  I only remembered today I have a regular camera in my bag.
  • This was a pretty interesting game.
  • I fell victim to bringing a squad I was infatuated with instead of one that was ready for battle.
  • I didn't even have a plan for the game.
  • The end of the game basically became a giant scrum in the middle of the battlefield.
