Yesterday evening we played another Indian vs Successors game. No pictures this time, because I had to re-pack everything in a rush to get to the club, so I didn't take the camera. Suffice it to say that the Indians are on a roll, crushing another Bactrian Greek army and taking Parthia.

A major victory for Simon, with Graham and I on the losing side.

We rolled for that one instead of playing it on the tabletop, since its rebellion left it as a minor state with no friends. The Parthians have kept their first point towards rebelling, rather than trying immediately with only a 1 in 6 chance of success. Next week's game will be an aggressive Ptolemaic incursion into Macedonian-controlled Asia Minor. After that, we have a two-week break for holiday time. If I'm lucky, I might have some Spanish completed in time for the big battle that is looming between Rome and Carthage.
