The 'Post' With No Name

 (It's Thursday - 00.59 GMT)

Saturday 5th November 2016 - WDW - Fubar Modern (didn't go).

Sunday 6th November 2016 - finished another book - "Return of Dr Fu-Manchu" by Sax Rohmer

The second of the series (of 14).  I have already read number one - "Mystery of Fu-Manchu" and am currently on book four - "Daughter of Fu-Manchu".  Will have to request book three from Royston library.

You have to make allowances for the language and attitudes of the time.  I can remember Christopher Lee playing Fu-Manchu in an old film.  His 'daughter' was a well-known oriental-looking actress of the time (and one that a teenage boy really fancied).

A good source of material for a pulp era skirmish or another dimension to gangster encounters.

Monday 7th November 2016 - WDW

ACW ("Grand Skedaddle") - I was playing on the Confederate side (and we won).
WW1 - "Flames of War" - Brits v Germans (practice game - Andrew & Chris)
DBM - 100 Years War English v Siamese - Al v Andy

Yes I am taking a rest from 'ancients'.  Rather enjoyed being a 'reb' for a change.  Another game in 2 weeks time so maybe DBM next week?
