Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
At about 4:00 A.M., the 35th Panzer Regiment moved out of laager at Tongres and meeting no significant opposition, progressed until running headlong into French armor and infantry outside the village of Hannut. The survivors of the initial ambush deployed and attacked the French strongpoint. The fighting soon intensified, with French tanks mounting a counter-attack against the Germans. The battle rapidly grew confused as both sides brought up reserves in an effort to gain the upperhand.

2019-02-08(D) Tom Kearney vs Nelson Harris French winWhew, this was a close one. The Germans made great initial progress and quickly neutralized five French tanks. However, the French took four German tanks with them. On around turn 6 my personal moral was near the breaking point. All my troops fell back to the village and prepared for a last stand. The Germans surged in to the village a captured the required amount of buildings. A last gasp French counterattack with what little was left managed to recapture some buildings for the win. Great game!
