Episode 66 - Peter Sidaway with Ten Thunders

So Rudy pinch hits again as the host and I am nowhere to be found on this podcast. I have no clue as to the content or anything that is said on this episode. Kind of exciting, and scary. But I am sure it is great as Rudy discusses lists with one Mr. Midtable Obscurity himself Peter Sidaway. Peter and I in our vassal history against each other have gone 1-1 and this will be the deciding game 3 between us. What it will determine I have no idea, but I greatly look forward to playing the game. I have not listened to this at all so that our game against each other will be played as normally as possible. So with that I do not have his lists at this time but after we play the game I will make them available. So without further ado, here are the details I do have at this point:

Vassal Map : Quiet Town

Deployment : Standard

Strategy : Extraction

Schemes : Convict Labor, Exhaust Their Forces, Hunting Party, Covert Breakthrough, Detonate The Charges
