For the first game in our 'let's have a look at the latest edition of some tried and tested rules' segment, we had a look at 'Rapid Fire'. Now, back in the day (the 90s), the original version of these rules had a distinct appeal - since they were so damned simple, and featured some lesser known battles.
Rumford and Marsh's latest edition dates from 2005. So we began with the 'in-book' introductory scenario, in Lingevres, Normandy, 1944.
We used the set-up as book, so that we could avoid any more advanced rules re. hidden movement. Though, that would have made things more interesting of course.
The verdict? Gobin is less jaded and enthused once more. Falconer's opinion...awesome! Rapid Fire continues next time...
