Sorry, old chap.

Cold Wars 2003 Friday Night G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T. pick-up game. Dinosaurs, giant ants, Pygmies, sabertooth cats, a walker machine, Amazons & Germans & Brits. Oh, my! Even a Lord of the Jungle & a Great White Hunter! And, of course, the obligatory lost Egyptian temple in the middle of the table. This is believed to be a photo from the 4th or 5th turn. Maybe. Yes, this is an actual game photo, not some posed after action report picture. 
Well, we DID move a few brown or green bottles out of the way...

The G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T. (or simply "GASLIGHT") skirmish rules are detailed enough to let one field a wide range of forces yet flexible enough to adapt to different cultures & periods. It can even handle (*shudder*) strictly historical games equally well. Sessions with over a dozen people participating have been played and it still worked. 

The GASLIGHT system has been expanded to include BATTLES by G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T. for larger battles & the roleplaying game Adventures and Expeditions by G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T., both of which are based on the original G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T. skirmish system.
All three systems can be played in 15mm, 20mm, 25/28mm, 54mm or any scale desired by simply converting the ranges and movement values.

Fun? You bet! (Who has time to waste on un-fun games?) Difficult? Heck no, and it's really flexible! What sold me on the game was the ability to generate stats on MAD SCIENCE gizmos, vehicles & whatnot with ease. Stats on all units can be randomly generated or assigned. It's also easy to do other periods or genres: Age of Sail, WW1, Pulp, WW2, etc. Highly recommended!
