Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The Finns, seeking restitution for the Winter War of 1939, had erupted across the borders and breached the Soviet Karelian front even as the crisis to the south of Leningrad came. In a desperate attempt to salvage something and form a new defense line along the Sestra River, orders went out to break off and retreat southward. One such unit was the 131st Border Battalion, which was to serve as a rearguard. At 1530, orders arrived releasing them to save themselves. . .if they could. Behind them a bakery was on fire, the town hall was ablaze, and ammunition was dwindling. Nevertheless, their young officers organized a fighting withdrawal towards the hills in an attempt to reach newly established lines.

2019-03-23(D) John Malaska vs Zeb Tingley Russian winEarly on, my sniper took out the Finn's, so I had free rein with cheap DF shots. Managed to keep my withdrawal orderly, although lost several MMCs to CC/capture. Finns were pressed for time by T4, and just about KIA'd/CR'd/broke to every DF attack. Finns conceded at start of T5, with little hope of exiting the map edge. Two oddities ... my first real playing of ASL1. Second, Finn HS broke on T1, and never rallied (Russian vodka to blame.)
2019-03-15(A) David Garvin vs David Alexander Finnish win
2018-12-30(A) Dan Best vs Rex Loewen Russian win
2018-12-28(A) David Garvin vs Verick Ready Russian winRussians held out! In spite of some pretty good shots on my part.
2018-12-09(A) Jeff B vs Ben Stacey Finnish winFinns hit the east side hard, pounding the Russians into submission as they swept forward en masse. Turn 2 was mop up time for them as the Russians scrambled to reposition to the rowhouses in the center of the board. Turn 3 saw the Finns control the S row, blasting the remaining Russian stragglers as they tried to dash across. Turn 4 saw them charge and surround the last remaining Russian bastion and batter them into surrender by the end of the turn. The only unit left to deal with was the as-yet still hidden MMG squad. He was discovered and surrounded on Turn 5 and locked up in melee, allowing the Finns free rein to charge toward the exit.
