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. . .

2017-10-06(A) David Garvin vs Alain Chabot Partisan win
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.
2014-11-28(A) Robert Zinselmeyer vs Jan Spoor Bulgarian winThe Bulgarian mortar was the difference maker. Broke several partisans in the central woods and then scored a CH on the 9-1 w/MMG in the foxhole to break it open on the left and the Bulgarians were able to pour through.
2014-06-18(D) Martí Cabré vs Eloi Soler Bulgarian winAll my long distance fire failed with almost no harm to the Bulgarians, who trashed my partisans with mg and mortar fire. Along with that I disabled all my MGs on the first shot of each one. He took two turns to reorganize and then walk along the edge of the board against a position that was wiped out by his fire. My units tried to cross the board to cover it and where KIA'd by his mg fire, so I conceded.
2014-05-25(A) Aaron Sibley vs Randy Strader Bulgarian winGood fun tight learning scenario..
2013-11-26(A) Jeff B vs Ted Wilcox Bulgarian winThe partisans malf'd every gun and just couldn't connect on many shots.
2013-05-22(D) youhei nakano vs Bulgarian winI am paritizan playing. My defence plan is very abnormal.This plan is center forest no forest setun on squad.1st turn paltisan movement phase ,my paltisan 3squad and reader toward back (map last one hex P).
