All,

Yup, this is the third go on the same table with roughly the same forces. So here's the scoop: my boys (ages 12 and 7) played the game twice using "One Hour Skirmish Wargames,' with slightly different force composition and arrival/placement. Then I hatched a plan to play the game again, but using different rules (more on that at the bottom), and a very interesting occurrence happened this past Saturday evening: we had company over to play a wargame!

Action on the South Spur: the German 3rd Platoon pushes up onto the crest, where small arms fire breaks out between them and the American 3rd Platoon (top left), as Tiger 502 (bottom center, with Tiger 501 off camera to far left, closing in on the North Spur) takes a shot at the US FO but misses (top center right). The American paratroopers stymie the German advance…

So the Germans immediately shift their focus to the North Spur, pushing their 1st and 2nd Platoons up the slopes there. Without their supporting Tiger…

I'm thinking to play another game on this table, but this time it's an American counterattack to re-take Biazza Ridge (don't forget the Americans lost the first two!), using these new rules. Stay tuned!

Jack,
This was great. Good to see you are working to prevent
graying of the hobby! Great AAR and glad the newcomers
had fun. Thanks for sharing as always.

Joe,

Yes, quite a blast, looking forward to when we can do it again but not sure when another weekend will pop up that the three different ball teams all are not playing…

V/R,
Jack

That was great Jack, really enjoyed it. Lots of heroic/suicidal infantry in that one haha! Really love the look of the terrain for this one too.
