Colonial Mars, pt 2

The campaign on Mars continues...

Tony is missing and the French commander Jim is replaced by Dave S.

From Furness Wargamers from Mars

The Americans continue to consolidate on their own little stretch of Canal, trading the town of Tamboo and its powerful British-built gunboat. isolated near the Belgium sphere of influence, to the High Martians. In exchange, they received the town of Uri-Babaat and its defending Fortified Barge, harboured near New Amsterdam.

With new reinforcements and troops ported down the flooded canal from the north, the Americans assaulted and captured New Amsterdam (formerly Po-Poo-Hanna-Kitai) from the French, who were pinned in place by an 'unfortunate' sandstorm.

This was promptly renamed to New New York to avoid confusion with any other renamed New Amsterdams. An attempt to recapture it was launched by the French but amounted to little more than a fly past by a Zeppelin, which retreated after one round of fire.

Both the British and Belgians try and advance down their respective arms of the Canal system. The British with greater success as they capture towns off the French, and effectively forced their capitulation to them. The British advance continues to roll on, swapping towns with the subservient French, and leading to a large confrontation against the massed Japanese forces.

The swiftness of the defeat of the main Japanese force sent shockwaves all the way back to Earth; with no doubt to have repercussions in the future.
