Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The Soviet 139th Rifle Division 20,000 troops supported by 147 artillery pieces and 45 tanks crossed the border on all available roads leading to Tolvajarvi, a key road junction defended by 4,200 scattered Finnish reservists. Cavalry Reserve Lt. Toivianen was celebrating his forty-fifth birthday that grim morning in Artahuhta, near the border post of Myllyjarvi. His men had gathered to congratulate him and present him with a new fountain pen. He had just made his acceptance speech when the sound of heavy artillery echoed from the direction of the border. Mounting immediately, Toivianen and his squadron galloped to join the fifteen border guards defending the post.

2019-06-05(D) Jeff B vs Shaun Andrews Finnish winA big old school scenario that didn't even see contact with the enemy until the end of Turn 2. Unfortunately for the Russians this contact involved a 3KIA shot, wiping out their commissar and two squads. Turn 3 was almost as deadly, as they lost another 2.5 squads to my remaining HIP units around the roadblock and the ones making a stand behind the hedgerow. I lost a couple HS trying to recover my abandoned HMG the next Turn, but this proved worth the cost as those units held him at bay for the next few turns. I withdrew to the safety of the woods once his ACs and heavy weapons got within range. By this time it was almost mathematically impossible for him to get to the village in time, let alone wrest me out as I had maximally deployed.
2019-03-30(D) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best Finnish winDan Best, Dave Mareske and I played this one as a 3-Player game. Dan and Dave were the Russians and I took the Finns. We completed 10 turns before the Russians conceded once their losses had become too heavy to carry on the attack. Great scenario.
2016-10-15(D) Tom Abromaitis vs Russian winProbably botched the HMG usage...
2016-02-27(D) Michal Bonaventura vs In progress
2012-07-15(D) Jeff Waldon vs Will Willow Finnish winVASL-Good game, good scenario.
