- Securing the Flank (#1): Axis 6 - Allies 1 (an ugly blowout involving a huge tank attack on my part)
- Capturing the Crossing (#2): Axis 6 - Allies 5 (a slugfest that finally came down to a last ditch surge)
- Withdrawal from Hill 112 (#3): Axis 6 - Allies 3 (another tank-led blitz pushed him back)
If all goes well, we'll be fighting Hill 112 (#4) tonight. While he can't make up the points for this section of the campaign, every medal counts for the Grand Campaign.
Days of Wonder has just announced that they'll be releasing another Battle Map set for the Overlord (multi-player) version of the game that will feature a Russian/German tank battle on one side & an Operation: Market Garden scenario on the other. It'll also have 6 Tiger tank figs & 2 extra "regular" scenarios.
Yep, they know how to pick my pocket. (Seriously... after playing Hedgerow Hell back in January, I'm sold on the battle maps & the Overlord expansion box. It was easy to set up & easy to bring new players into the game.)
Speaking of new recruits, my best friend from college (and best man at my wedding!), Tim Formby & his son, Nathan, have recently been drafted into the Memoir '44 forces.
Nathan - don't let your dad play his silly waiting/defensive game - go out there & attack him with wild & crazy near-suicide attacks. You won't always win, but you're guaranteed to make him crazy - it certainly worked when I did it to him in Conquest of the Empire all those years ago!
