2018-04-22(D) Jeff B vs Elmo Menon German winWe did decide to switch sides as my opponent and I were curious if the outcome would be different with the Americans opting for Group B. The mortar only had one round of WP but it is amazing how one blob of smoke can make the approach much safer. The Americans were threatening the building on Turn 2 already. Thankfully for me my tiny misplaced force was able to survive Turn 1 DF and then, more amazingly, Turn 2 PF. Even still the Americans managed to take one building hex on Turn 2. Turn 3 saw them increase that total to 2 and I finally got the much-needed reinforcements. At this point this already dicey scenario became even more so. All but two LMGs made for the fort, these each went to a corner of the map to possibly lay fire lanes and to make routing difficult. This proved to be invaluable as 2 American squads and an 8-0 were NQd to death in the Turn 4 RtPh. This left the Americans only 2 squads in the building with massive firepower in their faces and 2 DCs to be placed on them so they conceded. This time around it was much more enjoyable, but the "my dice are better than your dice" nature of this scenario makes it a dud in my book.
2018-04-20(A) Jeff B vs Elmo Menon German winI made the mistake of thinking more bodies would be worth the trade-off of hard-hitting equipment so I chose Group A. It wasn't, and I got absolutely shredded in the process if trying to storm the fort. I did realize much too late in the game that my initial shot exposed a possibly illegally setup dummy stack in the shellholes, though I think one could make an argument that the setup instructions would allow this. It is a shame the setup instructions were not worded more clearly, but I do think this would not be allowed as it is not explicitly stated that dummies can setup as such. This would've probably put much more weight on shooting rather than moving on my opening turn and materially changed the dynamic of the game. Ah well. My opponent's dice were extremely hot (frequently breaking my fragile Americans on 2 flat shots) so it may not have mattered. I didn't even come close to setting a toe in the building. I do think the Americans need to choose Group B, and I do think that the opening fire turn is extremely important. This one is way too small and dicey for my tastes.
2016-09-21(D) Andy Beaton vs Blake Ball American winDefended on the wrong side of the fort, the Germans were wiped off the board by heavy American firepower before my reinforcements even arrived. Was left attempting an infantry-only assault through the open against fortified Americans. It was a slaughter.
2016-08-05(D) Jeremy Busby vs Gary Bartlett German win
