Far From Home SCW (id:#60815)
(ASL Action Pack # 6 A Decade of War ID:AP53)
Designer: Gary Fortenberry
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The Nationalists' offensive started with a heavy artillery bombardment on the 14 December and Franco's troops occupied the town of Boadilla del Monte. As a countermeasure, the Republicans sent a detachment of Russian tanks led by General Pavlov and two International Brigades (XII and XIV) at Boadilla and re-occupied it. Yet they finally became cut-off in the town by Nationalist counterattacks, and took a defensive stance.

Last Played:
2018-08-24(A) Gordon Jupp vs Derek Cox Nationalist winAn absolutely cracking game! I played this in 2012 and always wanted to play it glad I did, burning tin cans, CC galore and DC'S going off, fantastic :)
2018-08-05(A) Juan Garrido vs Solo Nationalist winThe game lasted until the last CCPh, where 3 different CCs took place in victory building locations.
2017-04-08(A) Jeff B vs Pierce Mason Nationalist winNationalists bum rushed the east, VBM freezing the token force left to guard the two victory buildings there, and securing both by Turn 2. The west was a different story, as most of the invading force broke in their onslaught. So this was where the meat of the reinforcements headed Turn 2. Turn 3 saw the central building change hands and the Republicans in desperate need of reinforcements. By the time they entered the fray however the Nationalists had the south bank pretty well in hand, having taken the bridge on Turn 4, and the western buildings Turn 5. The tank battles were fairly even, but WA played a huge part in Nationalist survival. By game end they were down to one tank however, having lost two to enemy fire and three to malf'd guns. The Republicans ended with two mobile tanks and one immobilized. They did end up taking the bridge back, and this hex provided for a very exciting last turn, but that was as far as they got, and the Nationalists ended the game with a decided victory, both in building VPs and CVP (which have no bearing on the end). Great early war scenario.
2015-07-12(D) Richard Carter vs Mark Moore Nationalist winI lost the Bridge Hex to his nice move down the gully. I did take the crossroads, but w/ the loss of the Bridge hex I lost by 4 points. I do think this takes a couple of playings to get it for the Republican player. I'd like to try it again
2014-09-03(D) Aaron Sibley vs Randy Strader Republican winTough win for the Republicans. Needed to take the crossroads for 5vp with a t26 tank, which had a squad in a foxhole with a DC. Thrown DC broke the user and t26 enters hex in Glory...
