So we thought it was going to be a small game.

Ever had one of those game events were you thought it was just going to be a small 6 player gamer but turned into an 10 player event? Well that was out Saturday Martian Empires game.  The first line up was 2 Red Martian City States and Lizardmen vs 2 columns of British and an Italian Force. More players arrived.
The second force pull had 2 Red Martian city states, Green Martians and Lizardmen vs 3 columns of Brits and the Italians . Then more players arrived. Final pull, Red Martian, Green Martian, Lizardmen, Germans and the Italians vs 5 columns of British. Actually, we had 12 players but Troy and I sat out the first game and played referees.

Game objectives: 2 Canal Bridges , east and west road. Started at 1:30 would play till 4:30
First Game a tie, Germans/Green tribes broke the British center but lost the road ends.

Second Game, Yes another player showed up and those that didn't play got into the second game.
Republican Mexicans, Red and Green Martians vs 2 British forces and a German player
Same map and same objectives.
Second game a tie. Mexicans broke the British center securing the bridges but both ends were lost.
