1938. The tiny island of Hendrinskaga off the Danish Coast is occupied one night by well armed Nazi sympathisers, led by one Hans Gruber.
The Police Chief on the larger neighbouring island, Sven Svensonson, arms the crew of the Danish trawler Mermaid, and leads them on a mission to place the Nazis under arrest.
Thought up on the train home tonight , the game was a rough and ready playtest of our new homebrew 'Pulp' rules. The rules themselves thought up and expanded via text whilst commuting on the train over the past week.
The game was a roaring success and at the end of the night, despite the poor crew of the Mermaid being handed the Herring end of the stick, we had honed our draft rules into a workable and fun little system. Fast play, bloody, with a heroic twist and strong Pulp feel.
That's it! My eyes refuse to stay open for much longer. Back to the Britain of 1979 in a week or two, where there's a bit of a Punk revolution going on.
