Designer: Unknown
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
After the swift and total Axis victory over Greece, Bulgaria laid claim to Thrace and Macedonia. Throughout the winter of 1941-42, small bandit groups began to emerge as the nucleus of a fledgling resistance movement. On March 29th, two such bands looking to augment their meager armory raided a Bulgarian encampment in the Rhodopes Mountains. They made off with a number of weapons including light and tripod-mounted machineguns. A Bulgarian infantry company, after sorting itself out, set off in pursuit of the bandits. . .

2016-11-12(A) Michael Dorosh vs Colin Emerson Partisan winCame down to last turn. Lots of 12s in this one, but Partisan hung on to two MGs to force 9 squads over the finish line. Just couldn't get my Bulgarians going fast enough, particularly my mortar.
2016-11-12(D) Colin Emerson vs Michael Dorosh Partisan winBarely won by holding 2 mgs. One remained hidden until the second last turn, kind of sneaky but a good tactic to make it tougher on the Bulgarians. Definitely didn't think of that tactic at the time. This is a fall back and hold on for dear life type scenarios. Looking at the battlefield it's a loss for the Partisans. Bulgarians steam rolled me.
2015-04-16(A) Shane Pask vs Bulgarian winI started well with 1 partisan MMG breaking and the other losing all its manning infantry (1 went berserk and 1 was shot by sniper). The MMG was recovered by Janis who was still manning it (alone and wounded) at game end. It still took 7 turns to win.
