An Update To Rorke’s Drift

Gerry has joined us in the studio this week to provide some historical accuracy since Ben’s left us to our own devices. Although that’s not the only thing Gerry’s been working on, he’s been tinkering away at an update to an old Rorke’s Drift game that Justin, and Lloyd were also involved in. Cleaning up some rules, reducing British fire and improving Zulu’s is only a small portion of what’s to come.
