This was a great game, albeit a little one sided. In an unreal series of events, my dice throws were better than anyone could hope for, much less expect. My Science Dice were finally repaying those many, many 1s, 2s, and 3s. The main thing is that I met a very decent fellow who I am sure I will game with again, and that we had a great time. I think we probably spent as much time talking history and current events (and perusing the shop) as playing.

Batrep - 03 April 2015 - Eastern Europe - U.S. forces defend against Soviet Aggression
I had a nice treat tonight. I got in a very fun and friendly game with John. This was the first time we'd met and Crusader's Retreat was home to a 1946ish Cold War skirmish. The Americans were tasked with holding a supply depot - Hold Until Relieved were the orders. The Soviets apparently thought the supply drop was fresh underwear, or possibly rifles, because they wanted it badly. Turns 1 and 2 saw both forces establishing their positions. Squads of infantry faced off from behind hedges flanking a roadway with the objective in the center. The Americans concentrated fire and were able to do considerable damage - a couple of Soviet units were pinned down and shot up pretty badly.
