2019-08-05(A) Jonathan Kapleau vs Sidhu, Paul German win
2019-01-20(A) Louis Langdeau vs Andrew S Russian winI called this one ahead of time. I told Andy that any time I have a flamethrower, it goes dead on the very first shot of the game. Lo and behold, I rolled my tank up to his front line unit and immediately rolled boxcars. I still tried to make a play of it, but Andy had good positioning on his ATR and AT gun. I managed to get a couple very good shots with my PzIV, but after it got double tapped by his AT, I was needing a big run of luck to save the day and did not get it. Not my favorite scenario in the world. There's too many small rolls that can have a huge effect on the game, and if any of them line up against one side, the game is pretty much over. I think there are better small scenarios to play if you only have a few hours.
2018-12-09(D) Scott Fischbein vs Mark Pandori Russian winDice were decidedly on the Russian side for this one. Mark malfed his VFT on his first attack with it, and I was rolling low the whole game (including a "1" so that my KV entered on the first turn). Called it during turn 4.
2018-12-09(D) Scott Fischbein vs Mark Pandori Russian winPlayed a second game after the first one was a blowout due mostly to hot rolls on my part (and poor rolls on Mark's part!) Second game was a lot closer. My AT gun took out the German PZIV on the first turn, but was in turn killed by the FT. After that one useful attack, the FT X-d on the very next roll. Mark continued to make good use of it with some useful VBM freezes of my victory building MMG/9-1 stack. After malfing the MA on my KV-1, it still got MVP with a crucial snake eyes against a big German stack in the middle of the street. Without that extra manpower, Mark didn't have enough to take the final building, and the Russians prevailed again. A fun, quick playing scenario, which can be quite dicey due to the length and the combination of AFV-based luck (x-ing the FT, rolling for entry of the KV, etc.)
2018-11-03(D) David Garvin vs Jack Daniels Russian win
2018-10-07(A) Vic Lauterbach vs RC German winThe attack looked hopeless after the first two turns. The HIP 45LL killed the PzIV, then the KV killed the FlammPz, but persistence paid off. Fire from the 9-2 directed stack broke the key defenders. Very exciting and tense right to the end.
2018-02-09(D) Allen Evenson vs Richard King German winRound 1 at Game-On. Russians had some tough luck but Germans played well.
2017-05-07(A) Paolo Cariolato vs Massimiliano Colosimo Russian win
2016-07-20(D) B-E Karlsson vs German German win
2016-04-02(D) nathan wegener vs Dave Mareske German winquick and exciting back and forth- FT tank took out 9-1+Sqd+lmg on first shot and X'd second shot. Lost the ATG without a shot to CC. ATR nailed the other Pz. His 9-2 raked me over and left all my guys broke. Conceded Kraut T4 - never got the KV1
2015-03-12(D) Paolo Cariolato vs Luca Martini Russian win
2014-11-07(A) Pablo Barreiro vs Russian win
2014-10-12(A) Dave Mareske vs Paul Works Russian win
2014-01-08(A) Jeff T vs Jerry German winJerry setup strong on his right flank (the long road) so I pushed in along the Russian left into the village. He immobilized the Panzer in the street, but I quickly dispatched his exposed gun crew and my flame tank went to work. Jerry couldn't seem to roll better than 8 or 9 on his morale checks. By the time his KV came in on turn 4, I had his entire force broken and I was in all the victory buildings. German win. Fun little scenario for a weeknight.
2013-03-23(D) Michael Rodgers vs Mike Allexenberg Russian winQuick playing scenario.
2012-08-30(D) John Van Natta vs Jeff T. Russian winThis is fun little scenario that we both had played before. My KV entered on turn one and immediately flamed his Panzer IV with a bounding fire shot after a failed motion attempt by the Panzer. The German attack never really got going as I got good attack rolls and he couldn't seem to pass a morale check. The flame tank was effective early, but ran out of fuel late and was destroyed by a critical hit while attempting to bypass freeze my 9-1 and his boys.
2012-08-30(A) Jeff T vs John Russian winLooked good through the first half turn. John rolled the KV to enter on Turn 1 and he promptly burned my PzIV with a bounding fire shot that seriously turned the advantage to the Russians. The flame tank helped break the front line of the Russians, but it was one step forward and *break* two steps back all scenario long for the Germans. Russian defensive fire wounded two German leaders and kept the attacking Germans at about half strength with squads failing morale checks and pinning. Rock solid defense in layers by John and time turning against the Germans led to some overly bold and unwise decisions. The Russians held on easily to repulse the Krauts. Good win for John.
2012-08-04(D) Jeff T vs Lyle Russian win1st play. Lyle got a bit aggressive and ran his PzIII into my AT Gun which took it out. The KV entered on turn 2 and got 2 KIA results against running infantry, resulting in loss of 2 squads and an 8-1 leader. My HIP unit surprised him and broke another squad and just like that the German attack was halted. Lyle conceded on Turn 3.
2012-08-04(D) Jeff T vs Lyle Russian win2nd playing. This one was much closer and up in the air. The Russian HIP unit had two -2 shots at moving infantry and couldn't pin or break anyone. He was taken out in close combat. The KV again entered on Turn 2, moved adjacent to the flame panzer and fired...a dud. He was killed by the Pz on an intensive fire shot. The Germans moved into town and found the AT Gun, eventually killing the crew in CC after they broke the gun. The flame tank took out a squad in victory building three, starting a flame, however they also created a Russian hero which would prove to be the difference. The Germans swept through the middle of the town and by the final turn, it came down to two close combats. A 12 on 4 (3-1 with a 9-2 leader) went to the Germans. A 5-2 (2-1) with an 8-1 leader and squad up against the Russian 9-1 and Hero went for no effect and they remained locked in Melee to give the Russians the victory by the narrowest of margins. Fun scenario.
2012-06-22(D) Paul Messina vs Chris Kubic Russian win
2012-05-10(A) Steffen Knippel vs Steve Cummings German win
2012-03-16(A) Martí Cabré vs Jesús Pareja Russian winA real close game with opportunities for both players. My FT Pz started a fire that eventually left my attack without LOS to the targets. I got a lucky APCR shot against the Russian KV and I took 2 of the 3 buildings, with last building empty of enemies, my tank in bypass in its Location and two pinned squads adjacent to it, but I could not grasp Control.
2011-03-12(A) Paul Jones vs Craig Benn Russian winDecided by last CC phase

2010-07-08(A) Paul Jones vs Damian Maher German winGood tourny size scenario
2010-03-08(D) John Van Natta vs Brandon M. Russian winThe Russians won two crucial close combats in the middle of the game that stalled an otherwise overwhelming German performance. Russian KV badly misplayed. The German finally conceded when his FT tank ran out of fuel in the last turn.
2010-02-28(D) Andy Beaton vs BruceC Russian winLucky rolls took out the German armour
