Last Played:
2019-01-29(D) John Malaska vs Zeb Tingley American winBig moment was when CE'd M18 was hit by HE round, but escaped with a '12' dud effect. This game is a cruel mistress.
2018-02-14(A) Ruben Rigillo vs Francesco Berucci German win
2018-02-10(D) Jonathan Kapleau vs Cann, Al American win
2016-12-22(A) Jon Jaramillo vs Justin American winI tried to slug it out with the American TDs and got annihilated. He rolled two crits, including one to end the game. I probably spent far too much time and effort trying to kill the TDs and lost sight of the victory conditions.
2016-11-13(D) Michael Dorosh vs Colin Emerson German winFast game; my TD brewed up a PzIV and I managed to kill a StuG III. With my positions revealed, the German concentrated on the north side of the board and rushed off the board after breaking my bazookamen and knocking out my TDs. Done in 3 turns.
