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.
Attacker: Japanese (117th Infantry Battalion, 3rd Infantry Division and 221st Mechanized Squadron)
