The FrF scenario played as GROFAZ final is called "Red Tears Shed on Gray", which is a line from the Killing Joke song "Love like Blood". Oh how young we all were when that played on the radio.In an odd occurrence the Grofaz finale was Saturday night.
That setup a final of Steve Pleva versus Randy Shurtz and they picked a playtest version of a new Friendly Fire scenario from Peter Struijf & Chris Mazzei with lots of colors in the name involving Romanians attacking Russian factories in 1941 on a terra-formed board 1. Looks like an interesting scenario that was getting good reviews already. Randy had a great turn 1, but Steve's Russians stemmed the tide and his mostly conscript force held on long enough for the Russian reinforcements to arrive and stem the tide for a Russian win.
Steve wins his 10th Grofaz title in 31 years which is a rather amazing accomplishment and Randy finishes 2nd in his first return to ASLOK in 14 years.
I have to congratulate Steve on an incredible run......7 GROFAZ wins out of the last 10 years......
