    AP172 Hickory Lickin' - AAR

    AP172 Hickory Lickin' - AAR NOTE: In the above picture, the German Setup area (black dotted line) is incorrect. The onboard German units must set up SOUTH/EAST-of Hex Grains 46GG9-T2-53N0, i.e. NOT INCLUSIVE of the hexes of the dotted 'triangle'. This would make the setup area a bit smaller...

    A25 Cold Crocodiles - AAR

    A25 Cold Crocodiles - AAR Scenario Overview: Well, 'Cold Crocs' is one of the classics of the classics I suppose. As of May 2021, ROAR has it at 188 British wins vs. 162 German ones, so it has seen a lot of play. The Excitement Rating is an incredible 7.61, which ranks it at no less than 4th...

    AP163 Dingoes At Damour - AAR

    AP163 Dingoes At Damour - AAR Scenario Overview: From the latest Action Pack #16, being tournament-sized and somewhat unusual in pitting Vichy French vs. Australian with tankettes and Carriers in Syria 1941, probably this scenario will see numerous playings. At least it has recently. My...

    J150 The Sangshak Redemption - AAR

    J150 The Sangshak Redemption - AAR Scenario Overview: This is a fine small PTO action which I can readily recommend to play. The the Japanese basically overrun a village and be done with it when Gurkha reinforcements appear on the scene who have to take it back. So both sides will have to...

    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. Scenario Overview: This is a small 4 Turn scenario that can easily be played in one session. Setup is simultaneous, a dr decides which side moves first. These two factors...

    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 Scenario Overview: This scenario features an interesting and unusual tactical situation which is why I selected it for play. The Russians have to assault across two Foot Bridges placed as part of the setup. Russian AFVs can solely cross over a Pontoon Bridge in...

    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...
