While visiting family in Lincoln, NE for Thanksgiving I visited a fine game shop that stocks Flames of War materials, Gauntlet Games. I was able to get in a game with a non-campaign player who agreed to play. There was a lot of action there and good spirits and sports in abundance.
I fielded my tanks and armored infantry again and faced a most unusual force. I’m not certain it was a legal list but as a guest who was I to quibble? We could only get a 4×4′ area with all the other action.
I was facing a combination of self-propelled guns, tank destroyers, 88s, SPAA and heavy artillery with a touch of recon. The Germans had the first move and boldly advanced through the wheat fields.
As much as my dice hated me last game, they loved me this game and hated the Germans. My poor opponent rarely made a save or FP test when he hit. I knew exactly what he was feeling but we're trying to win the war, so...
Within a short time my opponent had lost all his mobil offensive capability and extended his hand in congratulations. My losses were one TD, one half-track and one infantry stand. Thanks for being such a good sport Phil, the dice were most unkind. I totally understand.
