    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Good idea. I still like that old board. The only thing I hated was the woods in W4 and to a lesser extent W8, U7, and U8. A great hill location marred by some awful blind spots. Perhaps in your scenario you could make those locations brush...

    Strong Memories or Reaction to a Certain Board?

    Board 5 screams COI to me every time I see it. A gamette that totally revised the entire German and Soviet OB and it only included one board. But man did my friend and I salivate over its inclusion! Board 24 was one I didn't like. I could understand hills just fine, but for some reason, the...

    Strong Memories or Reaction to a Certain Board?

    Having played a few scenarios lately using some early boards, it made me curious if any boards out there invoke a strong memory for any of you as soon as you see it. This could be anything from a scenario that instantly comes into mind when you see it, a love or loathing of a particular board...

    Sad that I could quote that building without even looking at the coordinates! Back in the SL days, there weren't that many boards to choose from. My friend and I still call the building on board 6 "The Chateau".

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Played two more and last two Shingle’s List scenarios (free download from VFTT) since the rest fall just outside our campaign dates. I was the Germans and my friend the British. You can tell the dated feel (1998) because of the boards they use. Not a complaint. I happen to miss those old boards...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    J32 Panzer Graveyard. Crept my German infantry up before the tanks to make sure the way was clear. Twenty buildings in six turns pretty much means no Prep Fire. The big break came in Turn 4 when one of the Mk. IVs recovered from a UK PIAT shot and promptly rolled a critical hit on the 9-1 and...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Played two scenarios both as the Germans. J190 Trial Run. I thought it was boring. A bunch of concealments and a few squads make a "fighting" withdrawal to stop the Canadians from exiting. Not enough Germans to do anything but fall back. The few times I did stand my ground, my guys were swarmed...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Was able to get three more scenarios in over a couple of days, this time in Italy. As usual, I was the Axis and my friend the Allies. G25 The T-Patchers (updated). I have no opinion on it because my dice were so hot that we called it on mid turn 3. The 50L AT Gun in the fortified level two...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    It seemed really scripted for the Japanese. Three elite squads, six MTRs. An on board animal pack, a convenient trail right at the meeting of the boards. Group one starts on board, CX, normal, CX and the route to the hill is effectively cut. The turn 2 reinforcements have to enter board 35 (and...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    With the covid quarantine loosened and both my friend and I working from home (no exposure), we finally got a chance to make up some time we missed. In all scenarios I was the Japanese and my friend the Allies. First up was J189 Buckley’s Block. I used several Banzais to cover ground. Got shot...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Played a scenario that is on many Must Play lists and from what I've read online, considered by many as a classic, A60 Totsugeki! It didn't disappoint. However, let me say that I feel if the Japanese player isn't experienced with the unique qualities that they possess, they probably will have a...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Played my last scenario featuring the BRT map, BFP-49 Just a Drive Along the Beach. The game was won at set up. To win, all the Japanese have to do is have three good order MMC south of the runway in a very large area. My friend set his on board forces stretched along the south side of the map...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Played J136 Muddy Mayhem as the defending Japanese. This scenario is the last and largest of the Suicide Creek scenarios. Pretty good game. My friend pushed mostly up the middle and got bogged down in the stream. Some men would make it across, only to be pushed back and forced to try again. The...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Yeah, that's pretty much what happened. I wish I could say that I planned it, but I was as surprised as my friend was when his men died like that. We aren't going to play the CG, but we are going play Muddy Mayhem next. I think my friend will send more HS next time to search the other side.

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Played two more Suicide Creek scenarios as the defending Japanese. The first was J134 Kerry's Crossing. To win, the US needs to get one tank across the stream. Turned out to be exactly as I told my friend it would be - dicey. The US marines came ready to fight and my friend blitzed me with a...
