We started out through the woods. We made it to an overlook of the river. We spotted a stone bridge and wooden train bridge to our right. We decided to take the bridge instead of getting wet.

Meyers was on point. Wet spotted a wooden building do Meyers went to investigate. Poor bastard didn't even know what happened. Sniper killed him.

Chavez rushes to check on Meyers, even though he knew what he'd find once he got there. Chavez spotted a rifle barrel sticking out of the building. Without thinking, he rushes to the building, kicks own the door and sprays the room with bullets. The Kraut protected himself somehow. It doesn't matter. Hensley rushes up and pops a grenade in the incapacitating the sniper.

We noticed a 2 story building to the east. We redistributed Meyers equipment and took off for the building.

Chavez is on point add we made our way to the east building. Chavez noticed a boobytrap. The building was empty otherwise. Horvath checked upstairs. As he looked out the window, he spotted a disabled Panzer IV tank.

After checking the building, we decided to checkout the 3 buildings to the north. A Kraut was spotted in the building to the right of the disabled tank. Horvath's weapon jammed. Hensley took a shot, but the Nazi ran away. We never found him.

We checked all buildings and the train station, but found nothing. Horvath remembered something that just didn't sit right with him. So we went back and rechecked one of the north east buildings. Good thing! Wet found a French boy who told us of some soldiers near the first building we checked. So we went back there.

The building with the sniper, there was a dirt road leading from the main road. At the end of the road in the woods we found the soldiers the French boy told us.

It was a machinegun nest. Hensley threw a grenade, but it just made them freeze. Horvath and Jebersole both charge assaulted the nest. Horvath incapacitated the gunner, but Jebersole killed the assistant gunner.

With the commotion, we managed to surprise an officer and his driver who surrender to us. They were packing personal belongings in the kübelwagen. Payday! Upon searching the vehicle, we found secret documents of German troop movement. HQ is gonna love this intel!

I love the game, but there's really no such thing as a quick game of Ambush!

"Hey, Joe! Got any live ones!?", (but Joe had no grenades). The tank rumbled nearer. Johnny stuffed explosives into his gloves, burrowed deep in the muck and waited; then deftly slapped them into a greasy tread axle and spun for cover; snap-firing...

You are so right. This session took a little over 2 hours. Just set time side like you're going to watch a GOOD movie!

Funny, with this play through there was some weird stuff that happened. I read others play through and noticed some major differences. I kept failing checks. Near the eve, I was 1 point away from winning and nothing was on the map. So I took one guy and started moving him down a column. That's how we found the French boy. Funny also that we passed the gunners nest early in the game. They must have been sleeping in. LOL
