2014-09-10(A) Aaron Sibley vs Jeff Coleman American (USMC) winWe used the balance as suggested in the BRT players guide. On reflection it might have given me too much of an edge.
2014-06-06(A) Richard Carter vs Steve Cummings American (USMC) winswitched sides and still w/ BRT players guide balance. It came down to the end. The Japanese had 1 broken crew, 1 crew manning a gun South of hexrow O. 1 crew and 1 HS on hexrow O. I managed to KIA the crew in advancing fire of last 1/2 turn and the HS was in the Ocean. I was actually ready to enter into CC and tie him up but we realized two things 1) No CC while wading but 2) to win the Japanese MMC had to be on hinterland or beach. So it was not the most glorious win but it pays to reread the VC's ... I had fun with it though.
