Last night Jamie, George and I ran a game for the kids at Bradfield Dungworth School's Christmas Fair. Having done mostly fantasy previously (we did do some Roman Gladiator stuff once) it was interesting to see their response to a historical game. In short, enthusiastic!
In a smidgen over two hours we played about ten game turns and completely burned through my collection of T-34s. In fact the couple of dozen suitable models that I brought ran out and we had to switch from marking "kills" with brown hamster bedding to removing them so the models could be recycled.
Having charged the kids to "buy" the toys they used in the game (from a £1 T-34 to a £2.50 Ferdinand) I was very pleased that we raised over £30 for PFA funds.
No photos of the game in action, I'm afraid - we were too busy keeping the game running with as many a seven young players at one time.
The rules used were a cut down version of Arc of Fire. I converted all distances into cm and categorised all guns as Big (88mm, 85mm, long 75mm), Medium (76mm, 75mm L/48), Small (57mm, 50mm), and Tiny (anti-tank rifle). No Modes were used, and morale rolls and TAC rolls were replaced by a simple roll-an-odd-number-to-pass system.
In the end the Soviets had made more progress across the board (albeit by sending unsupported tanks through a wood) so I gave them the victory.
