Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Rommel’s 7th Panzer Division had established a small bridgehead across the Somme, but the construction of a pontoon bridge was prevented by interdicting fire from the nearby town of Hangest. . . Self-propelled howitzers were brought forward to bombard the defenders, and an assault by motorcycle infantry was launched. The attackers slowly fought their way into Hangest, but the colonial infantry resisted fiercely even in the face of point-blank fire from the SP guns. . .

2020-02-13(A) Jeff B vs Magnus Rimvall German winI remembered this scenario being extremely exciting; in fact I would've put it in my Top 15 of all time (if not my Top 10). Boy was I ever wrong. This time around it was a completely different story. Boring as all get-out (and I was even attacking). I chose a Schwerpunkt from the north, leaving a moderate force in the middle to prevent unopposed French adjustments and to threaten later game movement. First turn's plan of attack went perfectly, as all three Grandfathers had smoke (though one ran out). I swarmed the sole Froggy on that side of the board, not even allowing any other French units shots due to smoke cover. The next turn he was a prisoner, and this allowed my swarm of HS to begin their foray into the back building line, while my main force moved on the big central building. More smoke, more movement. The French did very little except skulk and try to retain concealment. And this was the way it would go; rinse and repeat; round after round. My overconfidence could've cost me in the end, as I broke two MA on my SP guns and spent perhaps too much time wrapping up the central building (which turned out to be fortified), but once that building fell there was nothing the French could do to stop me. Snore.
2019-09-08(A) Andy Beaton vs Bruce Stevenson German winCame down to the wire.. I was ready for a brutal last ditch struggle for the 11th building when he rolled a 2 attacking one of my attack groups. The sniper proceeded to kill his best leader in the fortified location, followed by a broken squad and an inability to stop me from taking that hitherto impregnable building. It's a crazy game.
2017-08-12(A) Michael Rodgers vs Brian Wiersma French winIn round three of Tussle, I played against Brian Wiersma in Le Herrison. By dice, I had the attacking Germans. I attacked exclusively on the German left, thinking that at some point I would be able to send some people to the right. I tried to be aggressive with lots of half squads and my 10-2 leading the way. My SPA made smoke in the first two turns, but that was all they were able to do. Each one disabled the MA in turns two, four and five. Brian took lots of shots at them using the HMG as ordnance, but without a kill. He eventually broke and X'd out. I remembered to mop up looking for the HIP units; I found one HS that lived longer than it should have afterwards. Around turn six, I had taken five buildings and had units ready to push to the other side, where Brian did not have much left. On my last turn, however, a broken French squad self-rallied and generated a leader. With the other remnants, it was obvious that I could not win. In post game discussion, Brian suggested that the Germans need to deploy even more than I did and send forces up both sides.
