I finally get to meet Tuco in person

Last Friday, I finally got to play a game of What a Cowboy in person and I got to meet my legend Tuco. The Canadian authorities finally lifted the restriction on fully vaccinated Canadians going to Canada without a two week quarantine. I had been waiting for 6 months for this to happen, I got the Covid myself last December and have been fully vaccinated since early February. I felt my chance of transmitting the covid was infinitesimal, so I welcomed this change. I had also not visited my daughter Jane for 18 months, so the minute the change in travel was introduced, I had my plane ticket. Much to my wife's chagrin, she could not visit as well as she has the wrong passport!

Anyway enough of that, I touched down at Trudeau last Thursday, was subjected to yet another covid test, the 2nd in 48 hours (I am getting yet another test today as I am travelling back to the United States). I am Ok with the tests but I hope the authorities appreciate that the likelihood of a false positive increases with the number of tests done as recently demonstrated in the case of Joel Armia, the Canadien's forward. I was released from quarantine Friday morning and made my way to Lachine to see my friend P-Y. 

P-Y had a table set up as he was going a game of WaC the next day for VL6. We decided to go with our usual characters, but have a one-off game, playing the Rescue scenario. It was a lot of fun as we have been playing CoC recently, but the rules were still pretty clear. 

I will not go into the ins and outs of the game but suffice to say P-Y got Maybeline off the table and won the game. It was a lot of fun, and I finally got to see P-Y's cowboys and terrain in person, they looked even better in person than in their photos.

The Rescue


  1. What a fabulous way to celebrate a trip back home to Canada. What lovely figures and terrain. I hope you're having a great visit with your daughter, John.

  2. Great game, great figures and a great set-up!
