    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Magnus Rimvall and I played DB135 THE KRINKERTELWALD. I had the defending Americans. This was either the first or second time I have used Prepared Fire Zones. I used most of them on the right and in the middle and set up the MMG to take advantage of them. My middle gave way first, but I was able...

    G1.6121 and A23.7

    A23.7 states "A Set DC may be detonated using the 36+ IFT column during any friendly fire phase in a subsequent Player Turn by that Good Order unit (or one of its derivative HS, if a squad which has been Reduced or Deployed), provided it is within six hexes and LOS of the DC (but at least two...

    Are you sick of Korea already?

    In the thread announcing the Korean scenario pack, that question came up. Evan answered that the OB is correct; the SSR should state 10-2.

    DTF-3 True Grit or DTF-6 Magnificent Beasts of Prey?

    I played DTF-3 as the Dutch with a fall-back defence, so it did not feel static to me for about half of my OB. Guns, of course, do not fall back.

    My matches at the 2018 NY State ASL Championship

    First match was with Joe Leoce. The scenario was J159 TROPIC LIGHTNING. I bid J0; Joe bid J2, so I received the Americans and Joe lost a 347 squad. Two highlights of this game for me: for the first time, I lost a tank to a Japanese set A-T DC. Cool. The second highlight was a Sherman firing WP...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Bruno L'Archeveque and I had a VASL session of YASL07 MAKING A BREAK FOR IT. I had the defending Germans. I chose an up front defence with a plan to self-break back to leaders to avoid CC with the British 648 units. I covered the forest side and the town side about equally with the MMG and the...

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    I finished a PBEM match of BFP50 Alligator Tanks with Jeff Sewell. I had the Americans with a nice selection of toys: several DC, a FT, two LVT with bow mounted FT, and three LVT with turreted 37LL guns. The Japanese have a 50 cal, a regular HMG, a MMG, an ATR and a 12.7 AA gun with trenches...

    Netflix has a series about several Medal Of Honor receipients from various wars. One episode is about Vitto Bertoldo in Hatten. The episodes are decently done, although the footage used doesn't always match the story. They are using good re-enactments, however.

    Filed the scenarios from AoO second edition, making a reference note on my original scenarios that have been replaced (from the annuals, action packs and journals).
