My opportunities to get to the Baron's have been spotty lately, so with an afternoon to kill, I made my way across town for a Black Powder matchup between the blue and the gray. This is the fourth or fifth time we've used BP for our ACW games and I'm beginning to feel they will be the house rules for the period. The mechanics are very clean - subsequently the games are running pretty quickly (when the room isn't distracted by an exciting KC Royals game). I decided to bring a light number of troops, however I wish I'd brought more because the table could have used more regiments and I don't believe the extra units would have slowed things down too much. All in all it was a fun match up.
