2018-06-21(D) Scott Sherer vs Jeff Buser Japanese winAt least I think the Japanese won. A scenario this large and it came down to the final CC in a single hex. Japanese were attacking and we forgot to do the CC HtH which would make the difference between who won. After, we counted up the CVP and came to 101, just over the 100 CVP cap for the Americans. Amazing that such a huge scenario came down to such a close finish. Something for my bucket list...spawned a THH, picked up an American DC laying on the ground and used it to kill an American AFV on the north ridge on my last turn. Overall a great scenario, but very slow going and after some of the VASL sessions, my head was pounding!
2018-06-20(A) Jeff B vs Scott Sherer Japanese winYes, Scott, the Japanese won. By a couple different ways - maintaining control of the western hill, and by the USMC hitting 101 CVP. As Scott said, it was truly amazing that a game of this magnitude would come down to the very last CC phase. By the end of the game both of our forces were truly decimated. This was a great experience, but I know we were both happy to get this one behind us (having taken over 3 months of playing to complete). I think we both have had our fill of PTO for the moment!
