2019-04-27(A) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best Japanese winGreat night scenario with a lot of movement and tough tactical decisions to make. Close combats brutal as my Japanese collided with HIP US forces. Straying took one of my stacks right into the a US MMG and then at the end Dan's 9-1 stack would stray and this would allow me to exit the required 10 VP off the north edge. Wild game that came down to that last straying roll.
