    FT168 By Dawn's Early Light - AAR

    FT168 By Dawn's Early Light - AAR Note one Error in the below picture: The German 8-1 Leader should be a 8-0 Leader. Played this little scenario today. Having only 4 turns and a dr decides which side moves first, it seems to invite being dicey. In our playing with me playing the defending...

    Leatherneck 2 #1 Airfield Fracas - AAR

    Leatherneck 2 #1 Airfield Fracas - AAR Almost 4 a.m. when I finished this scecario totally exhausted as the Marines. Our playing was rife with absurdities leading to utter frustration as well as amazement and disbelief. Our playing went until the last APh of Japanese Turn 7. Now after a...

    SP246 Triggerline Zoebel - AAR

    SP246 Triggerline Zoebel - AAR Just finished this one tonight playing the Russians. The Russians have to assault across two Foot Bridges places as part of the setup. Russian AFVs can only cross over a Pontoon Bridge in U4 which is only completed (i.e. placed on board) at the start of Russian...

    ASL192 / G29 Shoot-N-Scoot - AAR

    ASL192 / G29 Shoot-N-Scoot - AAR Scenario Overview: I picked this scenario as I felt like playing something bigger than the usual tournament fare. With 8.5 Turns and roughly 15 squad equivalents and a dozen AFV per side, this one seemed to fit the bill. The defending Americans also have a...

    AP4 / ASL186 L'Abbaye Blanche - AAR

    AP4 / ASL186 L'Abbaye Blanche - AAR Somehow, I have never played this old classic before which has been republished in Yanks 2 as ASL186. Now I took it out as a small scenario to teach VASL. Set in August 1944 in France, this scenario is special in that the entire US order of battle sets up...

    DB106 Defending The Twin Villages - AAR

    DB106 Defending The Twin Villages - AAR I have just completed this scenario playing the attacking Germans. For sure, you will have some careful thinking to do when setting up a defence for this one. The Germans as well a well advised to ponder well what they want to achieve when. Quite some...

    J44 / ASL238 Audacity - AAR

    J44 / ASL238 Audacity - AAR Just finished playing this old classic which happened to be featuring recently in a tournament and has thus seen a number of playings on VASL. When I came across this scenario a while ago, I wondered why I have not played it before as it has a nice little size...

    FrF87 Mormal Forest - AAR

    FrF87 Mormal Forest - AAR My opponent and I agreed to play this scenario just three years ago and he sent me his defensive setup. Yesterday, after mere three years of contemplation about my offensive setup, updating the original VASL file, some changes of the defensive setup and some to mine...

    J102 The Yelnya Bridge - AAR

    J102 The Yelnya Bridge - AAR This little scenario I have skipped over several times because for some reason I always believed I had played it before. It turned out that I had not. As I had just finished reading most of the quite monumental (in size) divisional history of "Das Reich", I took...

    SP195 Retreat From Hannut - AAR

    SP195 Retreat From Hannut - AAR A while ago I came across this early war Westfront scenario, which looked quite interesting. So I gave it a go as the defending French. By the way: If you wonder why I always initially merely post the beginnings of AAR's, here is the reason.The games are looged...

    BoF16 Saluting A General - AAR

    BoF16 Saluting A General - AAR A while ago I came into contact with a nice guy in this forum who offered me to play a game of the BoF16 version of 'Saluting A General'. I dimly remembered having played that scenario seven years ago in its original FrF56 version, so I searched my stuff and...

    J154 Cradle To Grave - AAR

    J154 Cradle To Grave - AAR This scenario looks very promising as the attacking Germans have an interesting mix of vehicles and an Infantry force with a punch to obtain its objectives. The Allies are a mix of Americans and Partisans that do receive some further reinforcements by US troops with...

    J152 Messenger Boys - AAR

    J152 Messenger Boys - AAR Set in August 1944, this scenario has some 'Bocage' feeling to it, but it is nevertheless not one of the 'full-scale' Bocage scenarios. Basically, an Elite British force supported by tanks and halftracks has to push back and root out a smaller German SS force to and...

    FrF68 A Hasty Farewell - AAR

    FrF68 A Hasty Farewell - AAR When leafing through my Friendly Fire scenario collection, I came across this one which looked quite appealing. Neither board 53 nor board q were too familiar to me. Set in the last days of the war - 28. April 1945 - it pits the Yugoslav army (represented by...

    J188 Grab And Go - AAR

    J188 Grab And Go - AAR I selected this scenario because I thought it would be just a big all-infantry slugfest with not much to think about and with mistakes made being able to compensated due to the number of units involved on both sides. With hindsight I have to admit that I underestimated...

    SP204 Yankee Pride - AAR

    SP204 Yankee Pride - AAR This scenario looked quite interesting with regard to the terrain, the tactical situation, and the units at hand on both sides. As per December 2020, ROAR had it with 42 American wins against 44 German wins at an Excitement Rating of 6.64, which is pretty good. I...

    FrF88 Panzer Shield - AAR

    FrF88 Panzer Shield - AAR This scenario is set on 13. July 1941 in Belarus, shortly after the beginning of Operation Barbarossa. It represents a situation, where the forward German leading Panzer elements, their supporting infantry trailing far behind, are checked by the Russians. In this...

    FrF97 Wrecking The Rentals - AAR

    FrF97 Wrecking The Rentals - AAR When I was browsing through the Friendly Fire scenarios, I came across this one which looked quite interesting featuring a motorized Russian infantry force supported by no less than eight Lend&Lease Shermans and Valentines. The action is set on boards v and x...

    FT230 Italian Behemoth - AAR

    FT230 Italian Behemoth - AAR This scenario was in the offering of GRENADIER 2019, but then I did not have the chance to play it. As I had created a VASL file for it back then and now VASL allows the easy updating of counters to the current version, I did this to v6.6.1 and gave it a shot. What...

    FrF12 The Fields of Black Gold - AAR

    FrF12 The Fields of Black Gold - AAR I wanted to play this scenario for a long time because it looks quite interesting and ROAR gives it an excellent Excitement Rating of 7.25 (out of 9) based on 73 playings. On the other hand, ROAR also lists 47 Russian wins vs. only 26 Germans. As this seemed...
