    Hybrid tournament, FTF and VASL. Any interest in such an event.

    I think the benefits of a hybrid tourney would come from the ability to have everyone at the site, but have some playing FTF in the room and others playing VASL from their rooms. This would allow for more social distancing and overcome capacity constraints. Those that are extremely adverse to...

    During turn six, the Russians ignored the order to be aggressive. They most likely sense the end is near. Also, a nasty 88LL is holding things up in the railway area. The 88 finally succumbs to the Soviet infantry. The Germans fall back. Turn seven is action packed. The Soviet air force...

    Finished turn five. Not a lot to report. Russians push forward on their left through the smoke screen. Germans pull back. One plucky volkstrum squad takes out 1.5 squads (DR 3 and 2) in DFF. A 247 with a shrek had a ISU152 in its sights but wiffed when he decided to "step out". Needed a 7...

    Sorry that I have not had any new updates lately. Been on VASL the last few days. The best way to deal with thread jumpers is to ignore them. Otherwise, the whole thread breaks down into a discussion of hi-jacking/not hi-jacking. Which of course defeats the whole purpose of complaining about...

    The Germans soon regret defending the southern rail station. Two smoke OBA missions blind the defenders in the stations. A CH kills off a 447 and a sniper breaks a 468/mmg that was led by a 10-2. This paves the way for a demo attack on the 10-2 stack in the southern station. The Germans...

    Most of the action centered around the rail stations on turn 3. The Reds gained a foot hold in the Sudlicher Guterbanhof. The Germans had planned on giving ground but orders from the GROFAZ were to stand and fight. German 105mm OBA was called down on the Russians. JagdPz, Infantry guns and...

    Russian turn two complete. The wire and mines are slowing the assault to a crawl. Reds start trying to create gaps in the wire and mines with T34/76s. They can't get a break on the wire bog rolls and one tank is immobilized in the minefield. Losses mount. A German sniper kills a 8-1 leader...

    German turn one complete. Reds lose two HS to booby traps....Some skulking and minor repositioning. Made a beer run and bought some gas..... now back to the front! Rob

    Soviet pre-game bombardment was ineffective. Germans lost some dummies and a wire. The seven 82mm mortars managed to get six smoke rounds down. Three mortars ran out of smoke. Prep fire was limited. Movement saw one human wave. Wire and mines slowed the Soviet hordes. Casualties are...

    Since most, if not all, ASL gatherings are being cancelled, I will be socially distancing myself with a solo endeavor. I am starting KBR1 from Lone Canuck solo. This is the big one. I will try to give updates on my progress. Stay safe, Rob

    AP 100 Coal in Their Stocking

    I played this a few years ago. If I recall correctly the Americans unloaded all the MGs from the transport and forced my Germans back with high ROF stacks of death. Rob
