Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The Japanese offensive on the 8th secured the northern and eastern portion of the city but failed to secure a major breakthrough into the rest of the city. Chinese civilians either fled to any Chinese troops they could find or were shot by the Japanese, while buildings all across the city were damaged or destroyed. The Japanese secured their positions and prepared for a second day of battle to take the rest of the city. During the night, Chinese cavalry moved some troops into new positions to aid the rest of their troops to escape westward. The Chinese were now ready to fight.

2015-12-12(D) Christopher Dawson vs Chinese Japanese winFun but seemed too easy for Japanese
2014-05-29(A) Andy Beaton vs Jonathan Kay Japanese winDice were harsh, but I was also careless and left too many people in a position where they could be captured. The Chinese have to take more risks with the civilians than I was willing to take.
