Like many I caught the Africa Bug from the figures produced by
Foundry, I bought a few and then talked Dick Leeding into
investing in Ruga Ruga
and Arabs and bought more myself. I got Pete Hunt going with the
French and bought more myself, and then Adrian Esland with Brits
and Masai and bought more myself. So it went on with John Jenkins
as Portuguese, Andrzej as Italians and Neil Bennett as
Belgians. Dieter is still hovering on the fringes with some odds and sods,
which started with a group of left over Sikhs from Adrian. I was
going to write a set of rules but in the end used Heart of
which were available on the Internet. To these we played with the factors,
made a good quick reference sheet and added Hazard Cards. In a game
each player gets a Hazard Card or two and these generally are the
cause of great mirth. We also produced Ronga cards for a campaign
but have yet to introduce them.
Toying with a campaign we instead starting writing letters and
these led to numerous situations, which could be fought out on the
table as a wealth of interesting characters came to life.
