2016-08-07(A) Vic Lauterbach vs MA German/Rumanian winBoth players should read Jim Stahler's analysis in Journal #2 because it take balls of iron to play this one with either side! This is old school ASL, lots of squads and lots of turns. The early game was a fight for building 3M2, the middle game a fight for 3R3 and 3R5 and the end game a fight for 3Z1 and 3X3. The Germans have too much time. In this game, the Russian 7-0 got radio contact on GT6 but drew two red chits in a row. Without OBA, the board becamse littered with broken conscript squads and it was over at the end of GT9. Very tense at times, like when the StuG MA broke and a mild breeze sprang up, but both were gone in one GT. Allow 20+ hours to finish this one.
2016-06-25(A) Gordon Jupp vs Ian Pollard Russian winPlayed at D1 2016, great fun, nice to play a large scenario!
