GASLIGHT: The Staff of Osiris

When a newly discovered pyramid yields a strange new artifact, it can change the balance of power. It's up to legendary explorer Percival Armstrong and a band of stalwart British soldiers to get the artifact to the approaching Royal Navy skiffs before the Hun attacks.
 The Navy chugs up the Nile

French reinforcements arrive while the redcoats man the walls (poor guys haven't even been issued tropical gear!)

The Unicycle Uhlans wipe out most of a British unit and charge through to face Sir Percival and faithful man servant Mpopo.
 
 Colonel Francois Framauge takes on the Killenkanner alone!
 Some tricky French Marines take a rowboat from the dock to meet the awaiting artifact.
And they escape. It was a great game full of triumph and hilarious mistakes. Both the Rokkitruppen and the Uhlans shook off their history of terrible performance and almost turned the tide. If not for the direct intervention of the heroic Col. Framauge, things might have gone the other way. He was awarded the Legion of Honor Posthumously.

Thanks, fellas. I've been working on my VSF collection for 20 years, inspired by the venerable Major General Tredmorton Rederring's old Colonial site. GASLIGHT has been an old standby for years. I'm blessed by a great gaming group and a house big enough to have a large gaming table.
This was a celebratory game for new guy Brett who just had his first child.
