2018-07-12(D) Ilyas Jalisi vs Anonymous German (SS) winThis was a rematch. He was more cautious with his tanks this time and carved a path through my flank, rushing through for the win.
2018-07-10(D) Ilyas Jalisi vs Anonymous British winPlayed against housemate; I was the Paras and he played the Germans. Lit up two of his three Stugs on the second turn (thank you ROF), and then the third on following turn. He conceded after that.
2018-06-29(D) Scott Sherer vs D. Bruce Weston British winSwitched sides and moved up to full ASL vehicle rules. Added a Sherman for the Brits and a Panther (I think) for the Germans. Still didn't matter as I won pretty handily as the Brits. My opponent has picked up the basics of vehicles pretty quickly so on to bigger and better scenarios.
2018-06-28(A) Scott Sherer vs D. Bruce Weston British winFirst game for my opponent using AFVs and he thoroughly trounced me! Did not exit a single VP off the board. Good learning scenario for AFVs, but seems to be fairly pro-British.
2018-06-22(A) Kermit Mullins vs Scott Waites British win
2017-11-12(D) Seumas Hoskins vs Dean German (SS) winGame ended very quickly due to British using a more forward placement and on the opening shot for the firelane that would protect the guns a boxcar roll followed by a SFF boxcar roll, then yet another on FPF. The Germans very quickly overran the remaining British due to the reliance on the opening firelane.
2016-09-11(A) Tom Abromaitis vs British win
2016-05-01(D) davide galloni vs hanzo British win
2015-09-12(A) leo zhu vs A German (SS) winThe second time to play this scenario.British leader made mistakes to place all units in front of the frontline and soon melee with germany. All three tanks quickly run to the west.
2015-06-01(A) David Garvin vs Alain Chabot British win
2015-01-28(A) fabrizio da pra vs Ugo Bartolucci German (SS) win
2014-12-14(D) Michael Focht vs David Garber British win
2014-07-21(D) leo zhu vs Erwin Lau British winAAR, please visit
2014-07-18(A) Lee Hyde vs Steve Ambruzs German (SS) winTough with HIP British and 2 high Rate AT Guns, but flank rush busted through AT cover with a lucky shot breaking crew and Leader at first time of asking. Lost one tank, but revealed the AT Gun for infantry to neutralise. Only managed to get everyone off in last Axis turn.
2014-05-07(A) Merric Blackman vs Michael Elshaug British win
2013-05-03(A) O Ramaille vs British winA very difficult walk for the germans in Oosterbeek. The british slowed them and destroyed one StugIII. Only on reached the west side. A complete British victory.
2013-04-01(A) Dmitry Klyuykov vs Anna German (SS) winTanks cleared buildings one-by-one when infantry aggroed some britishes.
2013-02-18(A) Mark Purkeypile vs L.H. British winPlaying the Germans, made a flanking rush to exit the board on around one hill. An extremely lucky shot in the AFPh by a 6 pdr brought down my StuH 42. Altogether, a poorly designed scenario. All units must be stacked with leaders using full road movement for three full rounds directly through the middle of the town to exit anything. Not really doable.
2012-02-08(D) Kermit Mullins vs Scott Waites British winGerman player really has it rough. HIP guns and infantry pretty much hold the line until the end.
2012-02-01(D) Scott Muldoon vs Jim Campagna British winGave Jim the balance, in part because of ROAR results but also because of our inexperience with vehicles. It didn't help :-/
2010-04-09(A) Thierry Mathy vs Marc Morice British win
2010-03-15(D) John Shingara vs Cliff Smith British winFirst time playing AFV...enjoyed this one!
2009-07-20(A) Paul Jaschke vs Dave British winGot slaughtered trying to get off the board by a nicely placed gun.
2009-03-22(A) Jonathan Davis vs Marvin Baker British winGermans have it tough, exiting VP against a HIP OoB.
2009-02-22(A) Niklas Johansson vs German (SS) win
2008-11-10(A) Rami Saarinen vs JR German (SS) winNice one.
2008-03-29(A) William Raynovich vs Ted Torgerson German (SS) winGreat experience. Love the HIP brits
2008-02-22(A) Scott Fischbein vs Brandon Liesenmeyer British winFun scenario - HIP Brits make for an interesting game
