Fat Lipki Solo. After a break away from CC, I returned and decided to revisit Fat Lipki and forego the traditional German opening of trading the initiative card to get the first move.

The Russian opening put Cpl. Krylov far enough down the road with a MMG that he was able to murder Cpl. Winkler and his squad before they could move off of the road. The Germans were paralyzed at first by a lack of Move cards, and the Russians got a squad into the pond house first.

Lt. VanKarsties didn't give up, however, and inched himself and two squads up to the pond house, then took the house in close combat. The second squad took the Objective 1 house, and the third remained behind at Objective Three.

The Russian right shifted and poured fire into the two houses, killing the squad in the second house, but not being able to budge VanKarsties. On the Russian left, Cpl. Krylov began inching his men toward the edge of the board, but the German squad at Objective 3 crossed the road and jumped one of the squads in close combat, eliminating it. Then Krylov and a squad jumped the Germans, killing them, with a German ambush leaving Krylov in a broken state that would last until the final moments of the scenario, in spite of many Recover cards being thrown at him.

VonK and the remaining Axis unit kept pouring LMG fire at the Russians until the gun malfunctioned. About this time, Russian Walking Wounded - apparently survivors of the Melee for the pond house - turned up in the Objective 1 house. The Germans made short work of them and pegged the VP's at zero - but the Russians still had the initiative.

The battle continued with the Russians slowly closing in and the Germans trying to keep them pinned down with fire. The Sudden Death crept from 7 to 10, consistently rolling 11's. The Germans turned over an event card, and the draw reinforcements triggered the time check at turn 10. A draw of 5 ended the game, score tied, with Russians winning for holding the Initiative card.

From 10/5/10:

Germans suffered from Inferior Unit Syndrome, combined with a lack of fire cards to keep the intruding Americans at bay. Germans retreated back along the main road bisecting the board, but couldn't stand up to advancing Americans with smoke and large fire groups. Americans took 4 of 5 objectives. Germans held up in Objective 4 to be surrounded by paratroopers, who got them in a cross fire for a surrender victory (with 17 points to the Allies on the board).

From 3/4/10:

Randomly Generated Scenario played on Map 11. A German platoon defends against a company of American Rangers intent on exiting the far side of the board. Germans dug into Bunkers and trenches, wire down the length of Row F to form a killing field. Rangers flanked fire teams on each side to pin down the Axis fire. Air support and snipers broke the German left as the Allied center slowly advanced and moved through the wire. American fire slowly wiped out the German left and a Melee with four Ambush cards (!) threw the German casualties over the surrender limit.

From 2/26/10:

Randomly Generated Scenario played on Map 8. Instead of choosing which OB to play, nationalities were determined than randomly drawn from the chits. German Elite Platoon v. U.S. Elite Platoon. Game ended in U.S. Victory after a German advance into Melee killed everyone in the hex, putting the Germans at their Surrender Level.
