ASL 132 Jungle InfiltrationPre-Game –
In this scenario, the Japanese attack (again) a Marine supply dump in front of ‘Suicide Creek’; the attackers only need 11 VP to win, with CVP earned plus each Hidden Initially Placed supply dump destroyed is worth 5 VP. I can’t see the advantage of setting up the U.S. force near the southeast corner (supply dumps must be set in or adjacent to a kunai hex), so all the hidden caches go as far north as possible. The Japanese force is not large, so they will have to form a schwerpunkt to overwhelm a sector of the Marine force & drive north to search for the supply points; although the Japanese off board set up looks strung out, the intention is to converge to the right & punch upward to join some random reinforcements. The U.S. units start dispersed to limit initial Japanese movement, but the pickets will fall back to join the main line of resistance in front of the dumps, relying on raw firepower & mutual support to throw back the assault.
