And of course there's the reprint of this....
Which perennially seems to be in the works....

(Even now it might be - but I'm still not holding my breath!)

Next up was the highlight of my convention--My team game and favorite game: Up Front.

Usually I figure a 3-2 record in the prelims is pretty good, but I haven;t lost a prelim game in 3 years now. Maybe I am getting better? It certainly wasn't an easy ride this year!

The first rounds were relatively uneventful. In the third round, my opponent was Jeremy Billones and we played a Japanese American Jungle Meeting Engagement. Jeremy pulled off a nearly perfect Banzai attack, but it only took out my weakest men. I was able to continue whittling away and finally broke his squad with about 20 cards left.

Next up was Ray Stakenas in the Russian/German round of Infantry's Iron Fist. Ray wasn't on his game that day. First, he tried to claim victory when he still needed one more man. There was still about half the time limit left. I was just able to infiltrate (on coulmn 6) and kill in close combat enough men to prevent his winning by VC's. My one man group C was only thing holding him back. I move forward to block and figured he would infiltrate and go into close combat with 3 or 4 men on my 1--but after the game admitted he plain forgot he could do that! So I escaped with a win.

For the final prelim game, Ken Whitesell and I picked a random scenario, since we both knew we were in the playoffs. The deck decided and Italian attacking British in Paratroop Drop. I was the British.

In the quarters, I played Ray again and we played Outpost Line. This time he did not forget to infiltrate, but it was quite as close and broke his squad late the final deck.

In the semis the previous two years, I won 6 straight and then lost to a member of the Greenville Mafia in the semis. It looked poised to happen again when I face Bruce Young! This time a German attacking Russian in Outpost l\Line went the distance. Again I had to hold off my squad breaking for most of a full deck. But I have a nasty habit of surviving (in the opinion of my opponents) and held on for the win.

On to the finals against Ed Kendrick and I was spent. We played Armor Recon Patrol Germans attacking Russians and when I advanced my firebase onto a Hill in firing range. Ed flanked the group with his tank and put me in wire. The Russians have copious movement cards in the deck--but NOW decided to run out and I could draw one! He pinned most of men, I was able to rally most of them back and was going sacrifice one to get rid of the wire, but he was able open fire again--this time terminally.

Congratulations to Ed! It was one of the best tournaments I had ever played in.

Used condition. Box shows some wear. Maybe a slight smokey smell from previous owner; I can't tell anymore. Some cards show wear, missing 1 or 2 cards and counters.

I borrowed a copy of this once and it sat on my shelf for a year. The rules were impenetrable. I was really hoping the kickstarter came through so we'd get a new rule set. Maybe someday I'll find someone to teach this one to me.

Teach? No. I need help and coaching.

Expertise: I'm totally newbie.

I just read the Rule from first to 16.5.
so We can play only Scenario A.
I feel insecure about understanding rules.
Does anyone play with me?

'The Squad Leader Card Game'. It's the second game on my list that I haven't played yet as I recently picked up a copy from the Marketplace. Really looking forward to it.

I mean, I have a copy and the 're-done' cards. I gotta play it. The rules & learning curve are intimidating, however.

The good news is that Wargame Vault's printing the game, with an agreement with Hasbro (?).

Box shows wear, especially along the edges. Some edges are coming apart.

Missing 2 cards and 2 counters. Most cards are in VG condition, but some show wear and age.

(There was a smokey smell when I received it originally. If it's still there, it's very mild or impossible to tell.)

This was a game I found at an SPCA book sale at mall for $2 (along with $3 copy of Acquire with wood tiles and $1 for Gladiator--2 out of 3 ain't bad!)

It is fast paced (especially for a war game)--it can be played in about an hour. Every scenario is infinitely replayable and different every time. Each of different nationalities has different flavor and have to be handled differently.

I have played 1000's of times over the years both live and on line.
