battle began with the two Indian groups dividing
missions, one group would attack the fort, while the
other would attack at the little big horn.
after the third game, the gentleman's agreement broke
down, this was due to an uneven scoring possibility for the
two Indian tribes and desperation amongst a Trespasser team
not familiar with losing.
the fourth round of play it was clear that the Trespasser
team, which was missing many of its core players and manned
mainly by inexperienced recruits, found itself in last place
and having no chance to win. So, under Bill Bone's
leadership the Trespassers decided to attack which ever team
was the current point leader. They were playing
the role of kingmaker in the hope of extracting a cash

Custer out of the Little Big Horn and back into the
Fort so quickly, that the cavalry outer players did
not realize that the fort was under threat until it was too
late. A Green player stormed through the front door of
the fort, eliminated 4 players, and swept up the flag in an
amazing feat of speed and skill.
