Probably the first Combat Commander game at Rangiroa

Chad’s quasi-Random Vacation Generator next led us here to Rangiroa, a famous scuba-diving destination.


Edge of the world’s 2nd largest atoll, Rangiroa

Last night we had a CC game which was no fun for poor Donna. I again rolled low for Elite Germans, and she high for green 1943 Americans. My SS company faced her Rear Echelon company, plus two 50 caliber machine guns, dug in to a bunker complex, on map 55 wide. To make sure that the Americans had NO advantages, her leaders (-2 on the RSG leader table) were a 6-1, a 7-1, and an 8-1. Mine (+2 on the RSG leader table) were a 9-2, a 9-1, and an 8-2. Then for the final insult, I rolled for artillery and was allowed to purchase a 12 fp radio !!

The result: Donna's 4-game winning streak ended!


The pendulum swings back – Green Americans dominated by SS

Tally from 8 games this holiday now is:

5 wins by Donna
5 wins by the Americans
6 wins by the defenders

Losing at CC is not a proper way to decompress...

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

I googled Rangiroa, saw the "airport" you must have landed at: dayyam.

Looks like a beautiful place to spend a few days.

Johnny hastily dug a foxhole, careful not to damage the sticky bomb detonator. The tank rumbled nearer. Fear of being crushed or spotted consumed him; yet seconds later, he deftly slapped the bomb onto a greasy gear and spun for cover, snap-firing...

While not CC, I feel like a game of "Conquest of Paradise" is in order when you get home.

Mark, tell us about 'conquest of paradise', if you would.

Does it include shark-tooth-edged swords?

Conquest of Paradise

It's not a heavy game by any means but it's fun and has a bunch of islands I've never heard of, like your posts...

Cool, I just ordered the cheapest copy in Geekmart. It should be waiting for us when we get home in early October.

Sounds good, Paul !! We may need two air mattresses, depending upon size. What might Donna discover feeling around blindly in the underwater muck?

thumbsup Own this game. Great recommendation. The invasion strength bluff aspect of play is especially satisfying.
