Andean Abyss solo. The cards were stacked against me and I lost to the Cartels in the second Propaganda round, just 17 cards into the game.

Napoleon's Last Battles, specifically the La Belle Alliance scenario; Hitler's War; Blitzkrieg Undone: The Battle of Hannut. Old and new stuff. Good Game Day.

Sadly, I didn't get to complete any games in September, but I did get to start a game of Panzer Grenadier: Eastern Front, which I completed today.

Played the fourth scenario entitled, 'Ride to Mediocrity'. This has elements of the German 1st Cavalry Division attempting to exit forces off the east side of the board, while preventing the Soviets from interdicting the east-west road. The Soviet forces were comprised of elements from the 75th Rifle Division, who had to inflict heavy casualties (eight step losses) on the German forces to gain a win.

This scenario went right down to the wire. The Soviets never looked like reaching their casualty target, but the Germans only just exited enough units on the last turn and only just prevented the Soviets from interdicting the road. A German win, but only by the slimmest of margins.

Despite low firepower, the German advantage in morale and leadership proved decisive.

Not sure what to move onto next. Might try out Heights of Courage and Yom Kippur from the Standard Combat Series.

I am now one of the few living humans to have completed a full session of Belleau Wood. A solid game, though the power of the machine guns can be overwhelming.



The Germans won big, and I attribute that to two things: the Americans coming out with too much swagger, and not realizing until too late that they needed to get out of those damn woods and start claiming nearby towns and hills.

Shifting Sands. Very tight finish. Egyptian Uprising pushed my opponent into an auto victory. Only card that could have won him the game but he played it just at the right time. Despite losing I enjoyed this game a lot and look forward to playing it again.

Langley, my interest in the battle of Belleau is strong enough that I suspect I'm being kinder to the game than most would be. That said, I enjoyed it, particularly the ebb of the French followed by the flow of the Americans. I even like the map, which I know others have called bad names.

Next up for me is Trenchfoot, the only other game I've found that has a Belleau Wood scenario.

My weekly f-t-f opponent and I got in two games of Salamanca from FADING GLORY this evening. I won game 1 as the French and pulled a draw as the British in game 2. On to Wagram 20 next week.

That wraps up 7 evenings and about 16 scenarios of Fading Glory. Borodino and Waterloo were our favorites.

I finished the Warriors of God solo game that I started about two weeks ago. I played the Lion in Winter scenario. It was very close until about turn 7. The English had a turn where they took over about 5 unclaimed areas and quickly spurted out to what became an insurmountable lead. They won decisively in turn 10.

I enjoyed the game very much. I am anxiously looking forward to the opportunity to play it ftf.

Amazing. Only 2 days in October have gone by and someone has completed 5 war games already.

A friend and I completed Afrika Korps today. He beat me as the Germans.

Two games of Hearts and Minds: Vietnam 1965-1975 FTF with players swapping sides.

Both games started in 1966, Red (Communist) won both with auto victories.
Red won the first one by 1971 helped by no less than 3 South Vietnamese coups. The second one was over by 1967 due to a streak of good cards on the Red side.

The game is really tight, with no scope for any mistakes by the Blue player. In fact it reflects well the somewhat hopeless nature of the conflict for the Blue player, particularly once the US starts withdrawing, the feeling of grimly hanging on by a thread is palpable.

When it is your turn to send a VASSAL move, the wait is excruciating. When it's my turn, well, I've been busy.

Played 1775: Rebellion last night with a friend. Had a rollicking good time. The bad guys (the rebels) were up 8:1 in victory points at one point and the Brits only had Delaware left as a reinforcement location. But the tables turned and I ended up winning 6:4. A very fun game even if the history is only a backdrop.
