Last Played:
2018-05-27(A) Richard Jenulis vs Mike Patrick Japanese winEnfilade 2018: Back to back banzai charges on the same turn finally broke a very tough defensive line. Mike played a hell of a good game.
2018-02-13(A) Christian Knudsen vs Mark Sockwell Japanese winMark took too much strength from his trenches into the low ground, which allowed me to successfully Banzai them in strength in Turn 2. He also failed some key MC's which didn't help. We did play my berserk squad incorrectly (he kept charging broken guys, who kept then dying for FTR, and we forgot that the 'serker should have charged the last location of the brokies and lost berserk status, not just kept rolling. I don't think it made much difference to the end result, though. A really fun scenario against a really fun opponent.
2017-04-28(D) Richard Carter vs Brett British winI happened to guess right in his choice of reinforcement entrance. I actually didn't set up well if he had entered on turn 2. My front line defended well with wire in the woods. His banzai in the village did not end well.
2016-09-02(A) Paolo Cariolato vs Mario Nadalini Japanese win
2014-02-15(D) Andy Beaton vs Jonathan Kay Japanese winCouldn't stop the Japanese smoke and banzai charges, though a few rolls either way would have changed the game completely.
