We had nine players tonight for a nostalgic trip in the way-back machine to the bad old days of the big red bear. Bill brought an appropriate beer for the evening's theme.

Tonight's brew

Scott and I crawled through another year of No Retreat - we are playing at a very slow pace due to distractions and a pretty close, intense game. As the Soviets I was looking like a long shot to hit the Axis high water mark in time, but a lucky card allowed me to rail a couple units to a weak point in Scott's front, and suddenly I was in Germany and Scott was scrambling to rescue some pocketed panzers. The Germans are very thin on the ground but this remains anyone's game as we enter '45.

Hitler plots the escape of his minions

Campoverdi and Dave played the 2nd edition of Twilight Struggle - Campo had an early lead but a forced play of the Europe scoring card sent Dave's Soviets into the lead to stay around turn seven.

A bad night for the Free World

Dr. Rob, Bill, John, Jim, and Natus tackled Kremlin, in a battle of weak-armed party chiefs. Six consecutive turns passed without a wave through the mid game. As a result, it came down to end-game position, and Bill was able to maneuver for a win.

The Politburo


Finally, Bill, Dave, and John played a nightcap of Small World. Dave's flying Gypsies looked unbeatable but John rode the Ratmen to glory, supplemented by a nice score with the Sorcerers on the final turn.

Flying Gypsy Domination

Good to be back and gaming!
