One Log Bridge tops my short list of PTO tourney size scenarios I'd recommend to anyone to try. It is always a real go-getter of a scen and illustrates well the capabilities of the Japanese in ASL. +1 there, highly recommended moldy oldy of a scenario.Was able to play two short scenarios, J116 Brigade Hill and ASLUG12 One-Log Bridge.
As the Japanese in Brigade Hill, I elected to defend only the two southern hills. The large center hill looked like it could be easily overrun. The Australians made good progress but their attack petered out at the base of the two smaller hills mostly due from failing easy, i.e. NMCs, with 8ML squads. By the end of turn 5 (of 6 1/2) my friend realized he didn't have enough left to make one more push up either hill and called it.
One-Log Bridge was fun. It went to the last turn with my Japanese holding onto one of the three victory locations. Lots of casualties. At game end I only had a 9-1 leader, a striped squad, a striped crew, and a half squad of my original seven squads. Poor CC rolls by the marines help my cause allowing me survive and then declare H-to-H on my half of the turn. My guys usually died, but they took squads with them. Oh yeah, crossing a deep stream also was tough for the marines. Recommended.
