Last Played:
2018-05-06(A) Jason Wert vs Jim Travers German (SS) / Hungarian winNice game with Jim and he eliminated my last turn to prevent reinforcement of the key VP locations.
2017-07-18(A) James Lowry vs Patch Bunny Russian win
2017-04-21(D) Glen Taylor vs Dennis Russian win
2015-01-07(A) Andy Beaton vs Jonathan Kay German (SS) / Hungarian winMy infantry was being stifled in CCs I couldn't win, so I need to take risks with my tanks to break the deadlock and it cost me too many CVPs.
2014-06-09(D) Jeff B vs Chad Cooper Russian winThe most exciting part of this one was the initial blind setup. After that it just felt like a tug-of-war without the mud.
