Steve Miller from Lone Star Historical Miniatures (LSHM) club of Texas and the Rat Palace Redux Wargaming Paradise submitted the following WWIII report.


We played a super game of Seven Days to the River Rhine today.


Situation: Stop a regiment sized (estimated) push through the town of Bad Braunsweiger. It is a transportation node on the route to the Weser River. Facing the Soviets were a reinforced British mech company and a strong West German armored mechanized company.


The aging Chieftains stood tall while the German Leopard 2s pressed the flank of the Soviets.


Losses were nominal for both sides, but the Soviets withdrew after NATO pressure forced either a last push or a regrouping. As a result of the failure, the Soviet commander received a warning from Stavka and will repeat the attempt when regrouping is complete.

Seven Days is a fast paced, reaction-based system that forces a player to make decisions from the first to the last turn of the game. It doesn't have a huge miniature footprint nor a Battlefront command distance that causes most Team Yankee games I have seen to look like armor parking lots.
If you like your games fast and furiious with a very decisive outcome, Seven Days is just your "cuppa tea".

Thanks to David L Lee and Jamie Mott for playing on Father's Day. It was time well spent. Good Day, Good game, Good friends
