Huzzah! Book 3 updated

The latest version of Book 3: Diagrams and FAQs for Huzzah! is now available on the Huzzah! page of the Oozlum Games website.

The diagrams have been updated to eliminate red-green combinations to make them easier to see for gamers who suffer from the commonest form of colour-blindness.

An extra page details formations for the Huzzah! universal basing system (square bases), which allows the same basing to be used for tactical and grand tactical versions of the rules. Book 1 will be updated with the complementary details as soon as possible.

Broadband connection KO’d at Fighting 15s

Gales knocked out the local wireless broadband connection we use to access the internet this weekend, and we have therefore been unable to access shop orders. Although the connection is now up and running again, further bad weather is due over the next few days and this may again knock out our connection.

Our broadband connection is essential to process shop orders and all card payments (even if made by phone), so therefore the next few days of gales may result in some delays to orders.

Update 5 December: Broadband access is still intermittent as gales batter the Isle of Wight, and we are running a few days behind on the processing of orders.
