This is the only look at me you will get. The first hint the bad guy gets that I am nearby will be the sound of the torpedo coming out of his baffles with high up-doppler.

Scott and I are winding up Scenario 4, where my Germans ran into Soviet defenders entrenched on the heights outside a village.

Note to self. Using infantry to cross open ground in front of HMGs and MMGs in pillboxes on high ground behind a line of mines and other fortifications: BAD.

Waiting for the reinforcing armor just minutes behind: SMARTER.

My brother Scott and I continue our run through some of the scenarios. Starting scenario 4, “Operation Max and Moritz." We chose it primarily based on the Goldilocks rule: not too big and not too small -- just right for what we want out of the game right now. [As an unsolicited editorial side note, the FFGD expansion currently on P500 is very welcome as it has quite a number of the more bite-sized scenarios.]

I am also nearing completion of a solo run-through of Scenario 3. Against a stiff Russian defense on the outskirts of the town, the Germans were making steady progress, aided in large part to the arrival of 2 Stug platoons.

It seemed like the jig was up for the Soviets when a fresh Battalion of German infantry arrived on the other side of town. And yet, some questionable decisions by German leadership in rushing the attack, combined with some stout defense and good shooting by the hard-pressed Soviet infantry dug in to the south of town, has suddenly put the issue once again in doubt.

Ah, the ebb and flow of combat!

I picked this up a couple years ago and had been itching to try it. Jon agreed to sit down with me and learn the system. We had one restart as I totally botched my first action selection, but nevermind that.

There are some interesting and unique bits here with the order selection system, but we found the ability to break down companies into squads was problematic and resulted in huge amounts of die rolling once you got close. Plus the overall playing time was just too long for us.

So, I'm sticking with Conflict of Heroes for now.

Scott and I kicked off learning scenario 0 to brush up on the game since we haven't played it for a while. Quite the change of pace to dip into tactical level chaos after months of Unconditional Surrender! World War 2 in Europe at the 30000 ft level.

Got this in a trade recently, soloed the first scen to check it out and loved it. So me and a buddy are taking it out for a test run via VASSAL PBEM. Tactical games aren't always the best bet for PBEM due to opp fire, but we're patient and both really enthusiastic about the game so we'll see.

Playing Scenario 9 as the Russians. In this game, that often means sitting tight while Germans shoot at you over and over, and that's precisely what's happening now.

A Departure.

I picked this up several years ago in a trade and, despite the interesting mechanics, was never too interested in getting this to the table.
