The game ended after turn 6. Both sides destroyed/lost 5 units, so - draw. This game was interesting because after turn 2, it looked REALLLY bad for the US. After turn 4 it looked REALLLY bad for the Russians. And then a draw at turn 6. It had a lot many moments of glory, and many moments of despair. Lots of fun. Afterwards while enjoying a pint, I learned that the Russian commander is a bit of a geological celebrity. Had I known this during either of our fights, I would have been much more intimidated and probably wouldn't have been able to perform.

Soviets want more
Last night I played another game of Bolt Action against John's Soviets. We laid out the table and chose to play the Maximum Attrition scenario because the Red hordes were itching for revenge following their heroic defeat two weeks ago. This game was played at the newly remodeled Crusader's Retreat. When I first walked in, I thought I had gone in the wrong place because it looks so different than it did the last time I was there - a whole 6 days ago for the ACW game. Anyway, this time the Soviets traded in their 2 T-34s and brought out quite the literal big gun - the KV2.
