Designer: Martin Svärd
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
In July 1937, Beijing was surrounded by Japanese-controlled territory. Only the southern road with the ancient Marco Polo Bridge was still free of the enemy. If this last of the Beijing approaches fell into Japanese hands, the whole city would be lost. Japanese troops were stationed on the eastern side of the bridge and the Chinese on the western side. - - - - In this 5-turn scenario, Japanese infantry and tankettes slug it out with Chinese infantry and a lone armored car. The Japanese try to put themselves in the best situation possible before the inevitable negotiations begin by controlling as large a bridgehead and capturing as many prisoners as possible.

2015-01-21(A) fabrizio da pra vs Paolo Cariolato Japanese winIn the first turn after one chinese broke under a WP smoke round I was able to get into HtH with 4 Chinese squads (2 of wich were Pinned) after two round of fight the dead count was 4 chinese dead squad against 1/2 Jananese but no additional prisoners. The chinese reiforcement came on the east side behind the big 2 lvl stone building. I prepared to meet the HW behind the road and they came on with a 15 squad HW on the second turn, they where met with deadly fire and conceded after 3 dead squads and another 5 broken with no gain and he would be obliged to enter a hex with a 2 residual with already 3 broken squad in it for an overstack penalty that would give me a 2 -5 shot and more fire coming from a still not committed squad.
