Usually Christmas is a time to get a few games played and have some festive nibbles. Sadly this year anything in-person was impossible so we had to switch to online.
Firstly we did some Star Saga remotely - its a classic scifi dungeon crawler game with 2 players vs the umpire. In this scenario we infiltrated a secret lab and uncovered experiments that created psychotic super soldiers.
The second was an online replacement for the usual all-day game we'd fight over the holidays. For this one we went to the Sudan and used a DBA variant called Hordes of the Dervishes. We fought on a double-sized table so had to use two cameras to capture the action.

We fought through four real battles from the Mahdist wars - Shaykan, Tami, El Teb, and Omdurman. It was 2 games a side and the Mahdists reversed history by winning Omdurman.

For those who may wish to refight them, here are the scenarios we used.
