Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The Soviet 139th Rifle Division 20,000 troops supported by 147 artillery pieces and 45 tanks crossed the border on all available roads leading to Tolvajarvi, a key road junction defended by 4,200 scattered Finnish reservists. Cavalry Reserve Lt. Toivianen was celebrating his forty-fifth birthday that grim morning in Artahuhta, near the border post of Myllyjarvi. His men had gathered to congratulate him and present him with a new fountain pen. He had just made his acceptance speech when the sound of heavy artillery echoed from the direction of the border. Mounting immediately, Toivianen and his squadron galloped to join the fifteen border guards defending the post.

2019-03-30(D) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best Finnish winDan Best, Dave Mareske and I played this one as a 3-Player game. Dan and Dave were the Russians and I took the Finns. We completed 10 turns before the Russians conceded once their losses had become too heavy to carry on the attack. Great scenario.
2016-10-15(D) Tom Abromaitis vs Russian winProbably botched the HMG usage...
2016-02-27(D) Michal Bonaventura vs In progress
2012-07-15(D) Jeff Waldon vs Will Willow Finnish winVASL-Good game, good scenario.
2010-10-22(A) Michael Rodgers vs Bruno L'Archeveque Finnish winI think the Russians need the balance, especially if the up fronts Finns run back early.
