Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The push northward to Buka Island and its airfield was taken up by the largely untried Australian 11th Brigade soon after its arrival on Bouganville. The advance ground to a halt as the Japanese dug in. The Allies had grossly underestimated the size of the Japanese force on the island. To get things going again, a militia company was sent on a flanking movement across the Genga River with orders to interdict Japanese reinforcements. With no retreat path, the Aussies had to dig in and resist a series of bruising counterattacks.

2018-06-09(D) nathan wegener vs Peter Wegener Australian winJaps maneuvered carefully to set up banzai in turn 4. Success achieved in AdvPh when Aussie MMG broke. Down to the last turn with 3 banzais. Aussie 9-1 and Squad got a KIA yahtzee on a squad and leader to keep them out of their hex and save the game.
2016-03-18(A) Dave Mareske vs Coleman Quill Japanese win
2014-12-21(D) Bill Brodie vs Steven Bond Japanese winVery desperate defence saw massive Japanese losses but aggressive attacks won the day for the Sons of Nippon in the last CC phase, great game.
2010-05-07(D) Allen Evenson vs Richard Jenulis Japanese winLost in final CC - Good PTO intro for me.
2009-05-05(D) David Ramsey vs Martin Barker Australian winPretty straight forward PTO - made simpler with no bamboo. Fairly static (and desperate!) defence for the Aussies.
