Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
By 16 February, the encirclement of Breslau was complete. Acting on Marshal Konev’s orders to secure the Silesian city, General Gluzdovsky ordered an attack against the crucial Gandau airfield, one of the city’s last links with the west. Facing grim German Volkssturm and Hitler Youth battalions, the Russians were initially thrown back with heavy losses, and were unable to capture the field until 23 February. The 25th saw battle-hardened troops of Fallschirmjager Regiment 26 arrive on a makeshift runway. The Russians were shocked to be facing these tough veterans instead of old men and boys. Still, the vice-like grip inexorably squeezed tighter on festung Breslau. With massive artillery support, the Russians blasted their way into the older, canal-lined sections of the city. One such attack overran a Volksstrurm-held position, crossed a canal, and became a tiny toehold in the German perimeter. With typical reaction, a parachute company and ad hoc infantry units quickly counterattacked the new Soviet threat.

2018-05-05(D) Paolo Cariolato vs Enrico Granata Russian winI played AoD last time in 2006 wished I hadn't wait so long to put it on the table again. Great scenario against a great opponent. The russian advantage was somewhat mitigated in our game since OBA put down a single SMOKE mission. Play it you won't regret.
2018-02-17(D) Jonathan Kapleau vs Duenskie, Ronald German win
2017-10-07(A) Jason Wert vs Ron Duenskie Russian winGreat match against Ron at the ASLOK Purple Rain finale. Ron used his artillery to great effect and stuffed the assault of the engineers. The main attack bogged in the first building complex, got rained on with 120mm and the Germans fell apart. Well played match for Ron for the win.
2017-07-20(A) Jeff B vs Ryan Ellett German winTwo of the three Russian AFVs got knocked out turn 1, while Goliath #1 went off without results. Turn 2 saw the second Goliath blow up nothing but dust, so Pionere Companie would have to hold both bridges the hard way. The remaining Russian AFV was flamed allowing the German AFVs to close in unmolested. Meanwhile the Russian radio broke, was fixed, broke again, and was fixed, just in time for the main German assault to kick off against the large central building. Two rubbled hexes cut it in half though, which would prove to make for difficult hiding for the defenders. Russian OBA finally came alive and did some serious damage after an optimal placement, but the Germans had amassed quite an assault force and it was only temporarily slowed. The southern reinforcements were slowly being whittled away and had a rough time even getting across until late. By the middle of Turn 5 the last Russian holdouts in the north were eliminated, as was any realistic hope of success. A very fun scenario that, in our case, was hampered a bit some very lopsided dice. The Russians must have rolled 5-6 boxcars just in the last couple turns alone, in one case rolling three in a row, while the Germans had a fair amount of snakes.
2017-06-27(A) Martí Cabré vs Juanjo Martinez Russian winA good scenario but quite tough for the Germans. If the Russians manage to get the reinforcements in, it's almost impossible to move them away. In my case I blew a bridge with a Goliath but then my leader and squad guarding the second bridge got themselves killed by turning berzerk. This opened the way for the Russians. Meanwhile a lone Russian tank managed to fend off many German attacks of all kind (TD, PF, CC, PzSchreck) and that severly limited my attacks elsewhere. Finally, with only half the space controlled I conceded.
