The action was hotting up as the Republican Militia moved to engage the enemy threatening the mine.
The workers beat of all attacks on the Convent and only take a few casualties due to it's stout walls.
Then the game comes to an end - I usually play till 6 jokers have been drawn and the last two appeared in quick succession and night falls !
'and as the suns sinks slowly in the west' - things were looking a bit bleak anyway for the Nuevo Riccan forces, the Police had suffered heavy casualties trying to take the convent and on the last move the Regulars tried to attack the workers in the Mine and failed their moral test and fled ! - so a victory for the Republican Workers ! . The Neuvo Riccan forces had bad luck and never really got going and the game ending rather abruptly was maybe a blessing for them preventing further embarrassment . An interesting game and it was good to get the figures on the tabletop again .
