2018-05-17(D) Jeff B vs John Malaska German winAmericans were running about a turn behind schedule to stand much of a chance, but Gavin and company scared the Germans out of their fire lane spots of Q7 and R6. Americans used their last turn to lay as much smoke as possible and throw all their eggs in one 8-0/squad basket. When they both broke it was curtains for them.
2018-02-12(D) Scott Sherer vs D. Bruce Weston American winGreat learning scenario to teach someone making the jump from ASLSK to ASL.
2017-11-05(A) Jeff B vs Phil Wentworth American winAmericans pressed hard from both sides and squeezed the Germans in their vice grip. By the end of American Turn 4 the Germans only had two good order squads left so they conceded.
2017-10-02(A) Martí Cabré vs Ted Kim American winWe previously did a first game where some good defensive fire killed a stack. We started again and this time I move cautiously using the buildings to approach and CC the German defenders. At the end I managed to exit enough units and also break all the defenders.
2017-09-21(D) Gordon Jupp vs Simon Church American winFun game, couple of hung CC and good US shooting ensured the German failure!
