This game actually took place on Labor Day in San Francisco but I wanted to get an AAR in for this game. I Ain't Been Shot Mum! We had two
players with a dedicated card turner, our own Vanna White while I
did my best to umpire. The Japanese moved unmolested from their start
positions to occupy the hill before the Commonwealth got a chance to
move or deploy. Once the Japanese deployed it was an uphill struggle for
the Commonwealth to assault the seven sections plus MMG. The Brits
used what little cover there was to close before one section mistaken
rushed the hilltop and closed with the Japaneses. The Brits lost the combat
and retreated back down the hill. The Aussies sent two sections on a
flank march to try and get behind the MMG's while the other two
sections got into a fire fight with the 1st Japanese platoon after
retreating from a charge up the hill. A Japanese Banzai charge rushed
into the weakened Aussie's and after multiple rounds of combat one
Banzai charge had just a Japanese big man and a lone rifleman left. The
fire fights were taking a toll on both sides as sections from both
sides dissolved. One last desperate Aussie charge against the MMG on
the flank took casualties and retreated back into the light cover to
regroup. At this point the Commonwealth realized that they didn't have
the strength to keep the Japanese from controlling the hill and
decided to fall back to Singapore. This was the first time playing IABSM for all involved. Having an umpire allowed the players to concentrate on tactics and rolling dice. It was great fun, both the gaming
and meeting a few fellow Lardies. IABSM is a well needed historical alternative to the tournament army build style of FOW.
