Designer: Erik Leander
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Operation Barbarossa progressed as planned, but repeated Russian counterattacks by units supported by heavy tanks met occasional success. The heavily armed and armored KV-2s seemed impossible to handle for the unprepared Germans. One of these attacks prompted the hasty retreat of Panzer-Abteilung 65. - - - - "About His Shadowy Sides" pits KV-2s against short-barelled Panzer IVs in a 7.5-turn meeting engagement set on board 17 and 19. Outgunned, the German panzers may still outmaneuver their powerful but ponderous opponents.
Attacker: Russian (2nd Tank Division)
Defender: German (Panzer-Abteilung 65, Panzer-Division 6 and Kampfgruppe Seckendorff and Abteilung II, Panzer-Regiment 11)

2019-02-11(A) Scott Sherer vs D. Bruce Weston German winRussians got smacked around pretty good in this one. I brought the MMG and the MTR on my right flank with the idea to try to interdict the German reinforcements crossing the open ground, but that plan was ineffective. I managed to get a toe-hold in the village, capturing six of the nine buildings, but lost a KV-2 to a CH and malf'ed the other's MA. Repaired it eventually, but by that time, the Russian infantry had been decimated by determined German counter-attacks and I threw in the towel.
2018-12-15(D) Jeff B vs Tom Arnold German winI thought when Tom and I played this it was for the CyberVASL IX Final but, due to some misinformation on my end, it turned out to be a Fake Final. Too bad too, because it would have been sweet revenge after having lost to him in the CyberVASL VI Final. I had dummies on the front line to try and slow his assault (which I did), though he sent a little over his half his force north with the dual intention of harassing my reinforcements and widening the breadth of the attack. Turn 2 he cleaned up the rest of my dummies, while managing to get a tank around to the far side of the village. My reinforcements stayed at arm's length and ran to reinforce my troops (who desperately needed help). My scrubs tried to maintain concealment as long as possible (their only hope to survive). We both came crashing through the trees in the forest north of town, with both of us having two tanks to support our infantry. It looked like this was where the bulk of the battle would take place, but my Germans took fairly firm control of the woods, while his Russians mostly pressed forward to grab six buildings. By Turn 5 he had his eight buildings and I had lost a tank, so the onus was on me to retake some ground. The rest of the game was spent in a whirlwind of battle, but it proved to be too much for his Russians to hold all the spoils they had gained with the dwindling supply of infantry they had. Very fun game.
2017-01-07(A) Tom Kearney vs Walt McWilliams Russian win
2017-01-06(A) Tom Abromaitis vs German win
2015-04-03(D) Andy Beaton vs Oscar Fernandez Russian winGermans wiped off the board by turn 2 in the face of amazing Russian dice, compounded by a clear LOS I just did not see until it was too late.
