Good scenario for Solo play. Paul Weir might be nearby for a FtF play.Played "The Guards Counterattack" solo with the Basic Infantry Rules from Jim Stahler's Programmed Instruction guide to ASL (e.g. no building levels, area fire, HOB, etc). The screenshot shows the situation at the end. Real knife-edge stuff, just as I remember it from many years ago. The Russians took the F5 building easily enough, but were broken by fire from I7, and then chased out by good order infantry, who in there turn were broken by rallied SMG squads. In the end, the Russians didn't manage the win and the Germans were ahead in good-order squad count.
The biggest mistakes I made (apart from tactical howlers all over the place) were forgetting to apply the DM penalty for rallying and, ironically, forgetting to remove DM markers at the end of the RPh.

You missed that the dice match the tablecloth...his wife insisted.
To compound things, my opponent uses red and black dice.
Used my new found baby HTML skills and did an index for myself so I can pull out any ASL play aid file and every single SpilkyChart quickly!!
