Last Played:
2016-12-20(D) Zeke Crater vs American (USMC) winAs with others, luck played too large a role in the outcome. Several KIA results left the Marines unable to take the pillboxes. What the Marine player remembered that I did not, was that a captured ART is worth 4 CVP. The Marines captured the 70 ART and with that achieved victory via CVP.
2016-02-18(D) Jason Wert vs Michael Daschbach Japanese winGreat Scenario, but Mike was harshly treated by the dice with 2 squads dying to Booby Traps or Fate. Still a blast to play and we laughed the whole time.

2014-07-21(A) Aaron Sibley vs Jeff Coleman American (USMC) winThe dice can be cruel in this game, but this scenario was ruined by them. Mine were hot, and Jeff's were Alaskan...shame as his setup as the japan was clever.
2013-01-19(A) Richard Carter vs Steve Cummings American (USMC) winWe switched sides and I was able to come up behind his units. I won w/ CVP's. I had a lot of luck on my side I will say. Seems that the Japanese set up needs to be good. Need to have pillboxes able to support each other from all sides given USMC able to set up anywhere around the Japanese set up area
2012-12-20(D) Richard Carter vs Steve Cummings American (USMC) winThe hard thing about this one is that the pillboxes can't set up HIP. I think I should have used a Bombproof, but used a Fortified building instead. He decimated me. I did malf my AT gun as well as the HMG in the process though
2009-06-25(A) Fred Schwarz vs Eli Schwarz American (USMC) win
2005-04-13(D) Jason Wert vs Roy Connelly American (USMC) win
