[Congo] En Lørdag i Congo

8 posts in this topic

Today I met up with Dr. The Thorbjørn to play a few games of Congo and eat cake.

 

We managed to play three interlinked games. The story of the lost totem of an unknown tribe in Congo (Or something, I admit this is not very historical correct).

 

Part 1:

 

A white mans expedition and a zanzibarian raiding party rush to steal the lost totem, protected by a mighty gorilla.

The gorilla is awoken by twigs breaking and whispering voices in the bushes.

The white hunters emerge from the jungle lead by their native scouts.

Well trained askari follow close by. Mumbling about the angry gorilla god living in these parts of the jungle.

In another part of the jungle the dastardly zanzibari slavers sneak in to grab the totem for themselves.

 

P1290352_zpsqeizba1v.jpg

The zanzibari have brought their own local scouts to guide them and some hired guns.

The factions are closing in, not noticing eachother in the dense jungle.

The fearless scouts charge out of the jungle and faces the gorilla.

 

P1290358_zpsdrfsnhj4.jpg

Unfortunately the dice god is not with them on this day and they get ripped to shreds.

 

P1290360_zpsdgcblzrb.jpg

The supersticious scouts leading the white mens expedition look on in terror.

 

P1290361_zpsmcqyjtbe.jpg

The wrath of the gorilla is awoken as it charges out towards the zanzibari.

 

P1290362_zps8do5o4ua.jpg

The zanzibari slave master whippes his men into a frenzy as they slaughter a unit of askari.

 

P1290364_zpskvuninyi.jpg

The surviving askari try to run away.

 

P1290365_zpsaskxcple.jpg

But they end up facing the might and force of the gorilla and this is the end for them.

 

P1290367_zps9osqhjit.jpg

A second unit of askari is beaten down by the slavemaster and his men while some white explorers close in to help.

 

P1290368_zpssqfrn56r.jpg

Yikes!

 

P1290370_zpsddm0uwoe.jpg

The zanzibari charge forth to capture the lost totem, but is stopped in their track by the explorers.

 

P1290373_zps9x8exvon.jpg

Too late! The askari leader looks on while the zanzibari steals away the totem.

 

P1290375_zpspfjfeuho.jpg

Oh the humanity.

 

P1290376_zps3dudcbhy.jpg

Even the ancient monument of a long forgotten civilization is horrified.

 

P1290377_zpsg7xupdjc.jpg

The enraged gorilla tries to get the totem back, but too late.

 

P1290378_zpsdqssjyp5.jpg

The zanzibari make away with their prize.

Part 2:

 

The zanzibari sets up camp on their way to sell the totem.

 

P1290380_zps60av9fjy.jpg

At early dawn the camp is awoken by something stirring up the animals in the jungle.

 

P1290382_zpsedffighk.jpg

The hired scouts are the first to see who is round and about.

 

P1290383_zpshaphas9w.jpg

A rare zulu forest tribe has come to claim the totem as their own.

 

P1290384_zpsko4ltecm.jpg

Some zanzibari quickly rushes out into cover.

 

P1290386_zps9ovf24dd.jpg

Others rub their eyes and hope their are still dreaming.

 

P1290387_zpstkx1pv6i.jpg

But no, the forest is suddenly alive with howling tribal warriors.

 

P1290388_zpsyujmjpem.jpg

"Shoot that way! I am sure I saw someone there!"

 

P1290391_zpsj3ivbtf8.jpg

The panicking zanziba360ri decides to flee the camp in favor of bringing the valuable totem to safety.

 

P1290394_zpsdvq6jp3o.jpg

The Emir holds the totem close trying to decide where to go next, while his men are slaughtered one by one.

 

P1290395_zpstawqm3rb.jpg

The camp is simultaniously overrun by the ferocious natives.

 

P1290396_zpsdcuvjw2k.jpg

The camp is lost.

 

P1290399_zpsnm4dhcem.jpg

Not even the skilled zanzibari musketmen can hold their ground.

 

P1290401_zpsdtcgvsbv.jpg

The jugle is running red with zanzibari blood.

 

P1290405_zps4tzh5ivq.jpg

The totem changes hands once more.

Part 3:

 

The zulu ventures to a near by trading station to sell the totem in return for guns. But on their way a bunch of adventurers decide to take the totem and cash in themselves.

 

 

P1290406_zps5datu9oo.jpg

The white explorers set camp in front of the trading post.

 

P1290407_zpsk2wkg0hz.jpg

Soldiers and askari are ready to work for their pay.

 

P1290408_zpseuk9ffaj.jpg

Tribal musketmen sneak up along the river.

 

P1290409_zpseoujrklv.jpg

A mighty canoo is setting good speed up the river.

 

P1290411_zps53bjilhe.jpg

Hey ho, let's go!

 

P1290412_zpsjp9uycza.jpg

Row row row your boat!

 

P1290414_zpswn44mxgr.jpg

Gently down the stream!

 

P1290416_zpsy6v075rj.jpg

Some hired scouts feel the wrath of the zulu musket men.

 

P1290418_zpswwc2a9sl.jpg

They are done dideli done for.

 

P1290420_zpso23czbhr.jpg

Trained askari set up in the denser jungle, to take advantage of the cover.

 

P1290421_zpssrdr00la.jpg

Zulu!

 

P1290424_zpsplphlyos.jpg

The redcoats enter some dense jungle only to get totally lost.

 

P1290425_zpshdtxemwr.jpg

It is a mystery to all, but somehow they end up on the other side of the river.

 

P1290426_zpsizdgzorv.jpg

The zulus are suddenly rushing towards nothing.

 

P1290428_zps95epkssw.jpg

What a fine day for a stroll along the riverbank.

 

P1290430_zpse36ch4fy.jpg

Zulu musket men try crossing the river and the fanatical warriors disemberk their canoo.

 

P1290431_zpsmch4i3vt.jpg

On the far side of the river askari clash with mighty zulu warriors.

 

P1290432_zpsyootqn4t.jpg

Then for some reason the askari join the zulu musketmen in the river.

 

P1290433_zpsnwyfn6qd.jpg

.

 

P1290434_zpsdosnjwmm.jpg

Failing dice!

 

P1290435_zpsonnfwtgg.jpg

The askari managed to cross the river, while the zulu musketmen was eaten by crocodiles.

 

P1290436_zpsf29sgtri.jpg

The zulu king has survived massive crossfire, lost his men and is now running towards the trade station.

 

P1290437_zps43jjv0xg.jpg

There is still some obstacles to cross before he is there.

 

P1290438_zps1fpgvhjk.jpg

Meanwhile the adventurers and the zulus are exchanging shots across the river.

 

P1290439_zpsuxgji5pm.jpg

.

 

P1290440_zpsbkyohc9g.jpg

Then deciding to face the zulu king.

 

P1290443_zpslggayijd.jpg

Wounded, but alive, the zulu king manage to get to the trading post.

 

Here the trader cheats the zulu king out of the totem and trades him for some worthless tinbits.

 

The end.

Det må vi snart gøre igen!

 

Jeg vil se om jeg kan nå at samle min hjuldamper i weekenden.

 

Skal desværre på arbejde i kbh næste uge så der sker i hvert fald ikke noget.

Vores stue er også pakket væk de næste 2-4 uger. Men tænker da helt klart, at vi skal have gang i noget igen snart.
