When the rubber hit the road, I selected the scenario "Along Way To Go" based primarily on the fact that it is all-infantry with very few support weapons - exactly what a we were looking for. David opted for the Germans.
The Germans began a cautious advance but one squad was caught very early by my 6-6-6 platoon in the location circled below:
By the end of turn 4, the writing was on the wall for the Germans and David settled in to attempt some kills. He did manage a few kills on the airborne troops, but had very little chance of exiting units from the far table edge. Final score was 8-4 in favor of the Americans. Flag, Rock and Eagle!
David and I used the same two dice for the entire game and I'm here to tell you, his rolls, particularly morale, were consistently higher than mine. ASL favors low rolls. He did have his moments, such as rolling snake-eyes on a "2" column shot against my mortar, but overall I think fortune favored my hands yesterday. We both really enjoyed the game and we'll certainly be playing more.
Oh, and I finished up 20 more French infantry during the week.
That's 48 down!
