Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
In the town of Shklov, the German advance was frustrated by the determined defense of a handful of young Soviets. Skillfully using every advantage, the young officer cadets, known as “Stalin Scholars”, were able to beat back the advance of the regular German forces. In order to break the deadlock the Germans ordered the crack Infantry Regiment “Grossdeutschland” to clear the town.

2020-01-26(D) David Garvin vs Arno Lebenhagen German winCame to the final phase. Great match!
2019-05-03(D) patrick palma vs Fabio Mazzucchelli Russian win
2018-08-11(A) Shane Pask vs German winQuick and Enjoyable. German progress was slow but on turn 5 both the Russian Major and Commissar were killed (one with a KIA, one with a 12 rally) and suddenly it was all over.
2018-05-19(D) Andy Goldin vs Alfred Fantegrossi Russian winGermans made good progress initially but both rushes on my last two buildings were repulsed by HMG rate tears directed by the 10-3. Russians need to avoid the temptation to set up forward and thereby avoid getting chewed up by German prep fires. Definitely play with the Russian balance to keep it a competitive game.
2017-05-26(A) Jason Wert vs Gabe Wert Russian winCrazy scenario with multiple infiltration, 6 down 5 shots in last turn that are shrugged off and CH's with ATRs. Ultimately, a late CC loss cost the Germans 2 squads and a ldr to a Russian HS, resulting in a Russian win to keep the last building.
2017-04-15(A) Stephen dedier vs Hunter, Jim Russian winMy first chance to play in the city and some work with vehicles.
2017-03-12(D) David Garvin vs Logan Stallings German win
2017-01-14(D) Itinerant Hobbyist vs Jim Burris German winKilled 10-3 and 10-0 in first turn. Too forward a defense.
2017-01-08(D) David Garvin vs Randy Shurtz German winI put too much up front to start as the Soviets. I did take out a squad in Close Combat and then one of his StuGs broke his MA and then had to recall. Note to self: put all the forces in the back and let them come to you and try to strip concealment. Maybe leave a half squad up front to force him to shoot.
2016-12-29(D) nathan wegener vs Dan Best Russian winAka "Sniper, Leader Lost". Early German momentum slopped by vicious sniper counter attack. Held P3 as hedgehog building. Used 2-4-8 + ATR for Russian balance.
2016-07-13(D) Jeff B vs Ryan Ellett Russian winGerman StuGs bookended the Russian kill stack, forcing them to go on the offensive. Germans bled infantry almost every turn. Luck could easily make this one go one way or the other.
2016-04-30(D) Jeff Waldon vs Chris Trout Russian winBitter Ender
2016-04-10(D) leo zhu vs Edwin German winGermany concentrate fire and win soon.
2016-04-01(D) David Garvin vs Paul Washington German win
2016-02-22(D) Kevin Duval vs Dwayne Duval German winUsed Russian balance.
2015-11-22(D) Michael Dorosh vs Colin Emerson German win
2015-11-22(A) Colin Emerson vs Michael Dorosh German winStreet Fighting. I focused on destroying the Kommisar, used the tanks to pin units. Seemed very tough but ended destroying everything. Cool Scenario
2014-11-11(D) B-E Karlsson vs Russian winPBEM game. Rookie VS Rookie. Russian Win using smoke to advantage,
2014-05-19(A) Jeff B vs Giorgio Winter German winSome masterful skulking was overcome only by some lucky shots from the StuGs. The Russians ended up with only one half squad holding the fort.
2014-01-01(A) B-E Karlsson vs russian German winGerman victory for me against an very unlucky oponent. He had a dead dice hand mine was on fire. His knowledge on tactics and rules supassed me but luck was on my side.
2013-07-12(A) Richard Carter vs Ryan V. Russian wininteresting game. I played the stug's a little too aggressively. looked good for first few turns and then I just got decimated. A fun quick scenario though.
2013-03-22(A) Richard Agnew vs solo Russian winThe Germans played too cautiously, refusing to be cut down by the Russian HMG and 10-3 leader. For the most part, they remained in the relative safetly of the buildings and refused to advance, consequently losing the game.
2013-02-16(A) Jonathan Davis vs Mike Stachowski German winGermans used smoke, VBM, and encirclement to good effect.
2013-02-12(A) John Van Natta vs Jerry Russian winI made an egregious error by allowing a broken Russian squad to lose DM status and self-rally in my backfield, which allowed him to recapture a building and get the win. Before this I had his 10-3 and a squad cornered in the last building and was preparing to try to root him out. I had multiple HOBs with 2 heroes, 2 fanatic squads, a heroic 10-3 and who later went berserk and took two squads with him. I think I used up my quota of snake eyes for the year.
2012-11-10(A) Raoul Duke vs CB Russian win
2012-07-07(D) Kermit Mullins vs Scott Waites Russian winOur 100th scenario against one another.
2011-12-29(D) Jeff Coleman vs Are Erlandsen German winEasy win for the Germans
2011-10-14(D) Pieter Van Innis vs Geert Van Loo Russian win
2011-03-09(A) Oliver Schumacher vs Michi Russian win
2011-01-18(D) Lars Nordström vs Enrico Catanzaro German win
2010-05-21(D) Patrick Martin vs Chris NL German winLearned that an up-front Russian defense is more dangerous for the Russians than it is for the Germans. Russians should have voluntarily broken their last squad in building Q3 to avoid CC on the last turn, but it was late so we had one climactic final melee!
2009-08-16(D) Luke Sineath vs Mike Weiss Russian win
2009-03-21(D) Andy Beaton vs Russian win
2009-01-31(D) Allen Evenson vs Andy Lewis Russian winRussian managed at last minute dash to deny the German Victory!
2009-01-01(A) Niklas Johansson vs DrawTechnically a win but settled for a draw since both misunderstood a rule (it was down to the final route-phase)
2008-10-11(D) Fred Schwarz vs Dave Wardzala German winA dicey scenario.
2004-04-24(A) Fred Ingram vs Gary Trezza Russian win
