Another great report that blends the core rules of this popular game with the geek's own excellent research into the realities and limitations of this particular conflict. As a history buff, I am smitten by the way this geek is able to intertwine these two aspects together, and I hope the readers are as well. Great work!

A VERY busy session report week for this geek, this is a 4-for-1 deal for you readers! It contains two massive amphibious landing scenarios and two others that have several special rules. All are interesting and well done, with a good blend of gameplay and pictures to support the reports. Well done!

Sometimes it works out that the most-thumbed report of the week is the Mozart Prize winner for that same week, and this is just that type of week! Having never played this nor any "real" wargame before, it wasn't the easiest report for me to follow, but the pictures (complete with arrows indicating which units moved during each turn) were invaluable. In addition, the comment was made following this report that this could be the perfect dry run scenario for someone trying to learn the game on their own...and I couldn't agree more. Great read!
