"By the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe."
Visited my mom yesterday from college, and Rachel joined us for dinner and a night of gaming. Still havent completely finished a short game but this one was close!
Since it was last night I dont remember turn for turn details so I'll give you the run down of it.
Rachel and my mom were the Axis and I played the Allies. Right off I started to try and take West Russia, bam I got it, Mom with the Germans took it right back from me! Then Britain took over Libya and the country beside it in the next two turns. Japan was a solid hitter and took China from me. I built up my U.S. bombing forces as well as Britains and Russias and I started to bomb Germany every turn, seriously crippling their income. However Japan was on a roll and took Calcutta from me, I took their Shanghai only to get ousted again. With relief on the way from Libya I tried to take back calcutta, no use, just too much support.
Overall it was a close game, I wish I could remember more turn for turn details but the girls won again as when we had to go the Axis was only one Victory City away from winning and I was scrambling to build up my forces.
As the dice tended to make every battle a hard fought one, no real walk aways last night. Even when I attacked with 7 tanks and a few infantry the defender always had enough to either make it I didnt win or if I did I only had a few left.
More reports to come in the future! As Memoir '44 is on its way in the mail! All the best, Jon
