Thanks for the game Bob, well played!Nate and I completed our game of FE 28 "Fidgety Bridget". My Japanese were victorious after getting off to a fast start. The Japanese got the random selection to move first, quickly getting up on the north side and center of the ridge and then inflicting casualties when Nate's Americans pushed up onto the center of the ridge in Turn 2. Twice the American squad with the .50 cal looked to be set to be dispatched in H-t-H CC, but managed to escape both times. In the second CC my Japanese rolled boxcars, the only DR possible to save the Americans. However, the .50 cal was pushed down off the high ground and as a result was not as effective as it could have been. I don't think either of us had particularly good dice, but Nate's IFT DRs were woeful and he was unable to effectively force the Japanese from the center of the ridge.
Nate is a skilled player and an entertaining and friendly opponent. I appreciate his patience with this night newbie and look forward to playing him again in the future and wish him better luck in the remainder of the VASL Night Tournament.
You had the Germans Jim?Kevin and I completed our playing of DB 68 Exit Pole. I can honestly say I diced the living hell out of Kevin to win. Night seems pretty easy when everything is lit up like it's day turn after turn. I think I got >75% of my Starshell checks and once the Cloaking was off, it is slow going. Still a lot to learn. Thanks for the game Kevin. -- jim
