Starter kit scenario?: Deluxe scenario?:
Overview:The Swedish Volunteer Corps Anti-Tank Gun Company had taken up position along the road leading from Kemijärvi to Märkäjärvi. On the afternoon of the 27th a "Ten-Ton Tank" showed up besides the road at the edge of the woods opposite the Swedish Position. The Swedes carefully took their aim, awaiting its next move. Suddenly the tank stopped, seemingly stuck in the snow. Instead of revealing the location of the anti-tank gun, indirect artillery fire was called in. But the shells fell with no effect. At that moment the stalled tank freed itself, and started moving.

Got to push AT guns for first time ( in deep snow) to get them in position for a last turn tank kill for the win as well.

My Swedish setup was a bit far back, and I think that contributed to my loss.
As such, I didn't have much to do in my turn but stay in trenches and fire.
The Swedes have four squads to cover a board width. I don't think they can
have a forward setup and be successful. Sadly, I don't think they can be successful
if they set up too far back. I simply don't see anything they can do.
I would play this again, as I think there must be something that can be done.
I rated this a 7. Rob would give it a 6.
Give this a try...it plays quickly and has the Swedes!

|This a a fantastic fast playing game with limited resources of each side.|
In our game we ran through the entire gamut of the rulebook practically.
Bog, Mire, Shock, Harassing Fire, Fire land, Leader creation , Hero creation, BH, FIRE Spreading in EC-3DRM, Attacking friendlies in OBA. End game fun.
Plays kinda like Dead of Winter but more fun!!!

|2021-02-22||(A) Jason Nichols||vs||Eric Topp||Swedish win||A good, fast-playing game that presents both sides with a number of options. As the Russians I decided to try to move my tanks along the top edge of the board but managed to get one bogged. This was then abandoned by its crew when the German 'door knocker' started pinging it. Eric made good use of his OBA and this caused a number of Russian casualties. In the end a good roll for his FFE placement resulted in my Russkies having to run through a hail of artillery to win. Sadly they didn't make it. An enjoyable game, I didn't even think of the possibility of using a human wave until Eric mentioned it afterwards.|
