Donna and I are exploring the south Pacific, and yesterday played what was possibly the first game of Combat Commander on the island of Efate, Vanuatu.

RSG game on map 55 narrow in which Donna's German Rifle Company attacked and badly abused my American Line company. Her startlingly accurate and effective 12FP artillery did NOT give me any slack, apparently those Germans had been stockpiling ammunition for weeks.

But due to quick time triggers, the game ended at TT9 with my boys, leaderless and weaponless, still clinging grimly on to the major objective, giving me a narrow win on points.

How do you pronounce "Efate"?

(If you don't know, Efate is also a significant planet in the Spinward Marches region of the Third Imperium setting of the Traveller RPG.)

Did you first play the RVG? (Random Vacation Generator). laugh

Next you need to hit up this strange land I call "Northern Illinois..."

And, hey, grimly hanging on is still hanging on. Good win!

Startling for the targets more than the shooters.

Thanks for the latest in the 'Why I Wish I was Chick" series.

Would'nt the Tarawa scenario in "Combat Commander: Pacific" had been more appropriate?
