2015-11-07(D) Michael Rodgers vs David Wolfe Norwegian winThis was my only repeat scenario of the weekend. My opponent was Dave Wolfe of Seattle, WA (new opponent to me). We both bid ten building hexes, so we needed to dice for sides; I received the Norwegians. I put the 10-2 with a HS and HMG in the central two hex building. There was also a squad and LMG in the same building. I had a HS and some ?? pretending to be an MG in the steeple. The two roadblocks were on the right side. I had a bit of early luck in breaking the 81 MTR crew before they assembled the mortar. Dave played a careful assault, forcing my troops to constrict in a smaller circle and yet keeping a lot of guys concealed. OTOH, I was not taking a lot of losses. I had my 8-0 with a DC destroy a HT that was BU and in motion mid-game, always a high point when one can do that. Near the end game, a HT used VBM to tie up a HMG squad, but spent a lot of MP in the hex. The HMG tried to kill the HT in order to remove the freeze. It shot ELEVEN times and finally killed the HT, BUT THE CREW SURVIVED to still lock the fire of the hex. In the end, the Germans did not take enough building hexes.
2015-06-21(D) mark watson vs Jeff Wasserman German winLost miserably on setup to Jeff. Promising looking scenario.
2015-05-16(D) Andy Beaton vs Mark Kraatz Norwegian winGermans bid 8 buildings, took 6 CASLO 2015
2014-02-24(D) Lee Hyde vs Santiago Lopez Barba Norwegian winSuper little scenario, with a German force attacking a small Norwegian village with the intention of controlling a few buildings on B17. Prior to play both players 'bet' on how many buildings they can control as Germans, whom soever bets the larger number gets the Germans. German HT's, Mortars and numbers make one think it will be a roll over but Ground Snow slows, and only 5 1/2 Turns gives little time for delay.
2014-02-08(D) Eric Ortega vs Rich Spilky German win
