Brian and I begin playing the Campaign Book #1 (after talking about it for 2 years). Brian will play the Allies, I will play the Axis.

Campaign #1 is NORMANDY: FLANKING CAEN
Scenario #1 is SECURING THE FLANK

After the Normandy Invasion, British Expeditionary Forces, led by general Montgomery, launched Operation Epsom. Epsom was the Brit's attempt to stifle the German retaliation and centered around the city of Caen, France. Caen's porition on the Orne River (and a major crossroads) made it critical that the Allies advance there before the Germans could lock down the river as a holding line.

My Big Mistake was, when sensing a weakness central (a weakened Bri infantry unit right next to his only advanced armor unit), I advanced my Panzer squad, hoping for a kill on the weakened infantry, then an Armor Overrun to smack his armor. But the dice thought it would be funny if I scored no kills, only multiple retreat flags, on BOTH attacks. Praying he didn't have an appropriate Center Command Card, I was let down yet again, as he launched a full-on assault, demolishing my best armor unit... And it was downhill from there.


5 - British
2 - Germans

This was Memoir's milestone 50th play at an NWIBGA event!

The right honorable Sir Terry Pratchett, author of the fantasy/comedy serieses Discworld, finally met Death last week after a long battle with Alzheimer's. We felt we would honor his life and work by playing this game based on his famous books and their characters.

Always silly, quick, and fun. This one was a rarity! Steven H caught us all TOTALLY off-guard and snuck a win in on us. Still not sure what legerdemain or cunning misdirection he used to slip this one past us...
Bruce's 1st play.

W - STEVEN H (Lord Selachii) Control of 4 Districts
L - Bruce (Lord Rust)
L - Jesse (Lord Vetinari)
L - Scott (Chrysoprase)
