Donnybrook at Dumfries

Post by obriendavid » Sun Mar 09, 2014 12:13 pm

It was good to meet a number of members from the forum at the LOA Donnybrook display at 'Albanach' the Dumfries annual show yesterday.
The game and rules generated a lot of interest and we managed to get quite a few people to try out the game plus Barry seemed to sell quite a number of sets of rules. The highlight was how 'Toggy' seemed to disappear when any youngsters showed any interest in trying out the game :lol:

Yes Dave

I'd installed height sensors around the table, anybody under 5' triggered an alarm & I scarpered.

How did YOU get on playing the 2 young chaps?

My dice rolling has never been great but I'm sure those little guys jinxed my dice even more, my unit of Indian troops led by a character failed to score a single hit unlike their drilled musketeers who managed to wipe out everyone, even my character died on his first hit. :roll:

Did your Scots actually manage to rescue the 'flying' damsel Bob?

I didn't, I was too busy running the game with Gerry and Toggy was busy hiding from kids and Barry was just chatting. :wink: But plenty of other people were taking pics so perhaps they'll post some.

I hope to see them as my mate was one of the organiser and I sadly missed going this year.
