Historicon 2006 Boxer Rebellion Game

Founds some pretty cool photos from a pick-up game I ran at Historicon about 5 years ago.

We were using Din of Battle (Piquet supplement) for the rules and had a lot of my Historicon "regulars" playing in the game. Since the game happened so long ago I can't remember all the details, but Jim Mauro won  "Best Player" award and received a Boxer Rebellion medal (replica of the US Army medal for China).

Definitely good times!
