    Played J119 Sovkhoz Haystacks as the attacking Germans. Bad dice was the rule for this game. Because of the way my friend set up, I tried a combo up the gut move on board 43 and a flanking move on board 4 with slightly more infantry and armor. By the end of turn 2 (of 6) my men were shot up bad...

    Played WO30 As Luck Would Have It as the attacking Germans. My friend botched the setup thinking I had to take the buildings to win and set up accordingly. That decided my course of action and I marched my men up the eastern side for the exit victory condition. Other than the setup error, a...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    I read good things about it so I was disappointed the dice decided the game. I liked how both sides had a chance to attack and defend. I'll never revisit it because of all the scenarios I have yet to play, but if I ever did go back, this is one I'd try again.

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    T16 Strayer’s Strays. Not knowing where the Americans would come on, I spread my guys out down the length of board 6. The Americans massed on the eastern side of the board and marched through all the blind hex orchards. I tried to force march my men that were on the western side but there was no...

    Played T5 The Pouppeville Exit as the defending Germans. Another scenario I played a million years ago. I kinda liked it because I didn’t have to worry about where to set up! I think my friend got cocky after our last scenario, Gavin Take, where the 10-2 and 10-3 had their way with my guys. He...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    32 Subterranean Quarry. I remember this one from when I bought Partisan! when it first came out. I thought it was the coolest idea. I played it, but I don’t remember the outcome. Flash forward 30 plus later and I still thought the scenario looked cool. After playing it again, not so much now. I...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    HG-11 Skill in Khilki. Should be called Drilled in Khilki! My defending Germans got destroyed by the attacking Russians. With no long range AT capability to speak of, the Russian armor decimated my guys. Not sure what can be done to save those sledges and conscripts. Weird that the original...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Played U3 The Factory as the defending Germans. Nothing too exciting. The heavy rain never let up. It sorta helped out both sides; the Americans initially and then my guys later. OBA and the 6 ML troops did in the Americans. Though only two batteries fell, it was enough to put the southern US...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Yep. I read your write up. I put the halftrack with the 9-2 on the level 2 hill with an AT Gun. Both halftracks didn't do much but I think they got one tank each. The AT Guns, on the other hand, lit things up. If I were to play as the Russians, I'd mass everything on one of the sides with the...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    FrF40 Sporck’s Eleven. Played as the defending Germans. Better than I thought it’d be. I figured the halftracks would be crushed quickly and then rate from the PaK 40s would decide my fate. I forgot about the Achilles heel for the Russians, red To Hit numbers. They may as well not shoot at...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Played ITR-17 The Devil’s Factory as the defending Germans. The Americans, split up into two (or three) groups must take two of three building by game’s end. The northern American group was absolutely pounded by the 80mm OBA. So much so, that it basically decided the game. The southwestern group...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Played J120 Ishun Tank Traps as the Germans. I misread the set up and thought all the tank traps had to go on board 43. I left two spots open to funnel the Russian tanks towards my AT Gun. I got one tank with a trap but by sheer luck on his part, my friend drove all the rest of his tanks through...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Did you try to mount up or armor assault in your attempts? I used the StuGs as deterrents for the Russians coming onboard and left some squads behind to delay the onboard Russians. Once I saw where they were going, two StuGs went to escort the infantry while the other two harassed the side I was...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Since it is a very old scenario, I know I played this before. I just can't remember what happened. I agree with you about the mobile firepower. Plus not prep firing much and using half squads more definitely affected the game (which, in my younger days, I usually prep fired and rarely used half...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Playing some short and long scenarios since my friend and I have some time. Almost finished with our foray into Italy 1944 and started the Eastern Front 1944 for a bit. I played as the Germans in all three. OA6 Mounted Extraction. Germans have to exit 28 VP of units off the board. All four...
