Hm... I wonder if Jay visits this site. oh oh

This game is going to take some time to figure out a win.

Not really a game. But I just ordered this book. I've been doing some play testing and proof reading for VPG and am getting the urge to delve
a little deeper into the hobby.

Here's how it stands now. Half way through turn seven. My Egyptians are making a shift to deal with the Isreali birdgehead. The Israelis have another bridge providing supply. The Sharon div. is about to cross and move in from the left. You can't see them on this picture but my infantry wall should give you an idea.

I am victorious in the first round of an AHIKS Panzer Blitz tournament.

Korsun Pocket Game #1 - Russian Victory
Germans get hung up on the blocks and hills while Russian guns hit them from fortified positions.




Korsun Pocket Game #2 - German Victory
The Germans keep the Russian CP dispersed and unable to spot. They punch a narrow but viable gap in a built up and forested area allowing escape.

No Retreat! by GMT - Campaign Game
Me as Germany losing in March 1943 to a Russian sudden death victory.
I made a mistake and the Soviets are one VP short. So the game continues!

After a disasterous two years (see above) my Germans finally get some significant results in May 1943.

Yom Kippur by MMP/Gamers
The Isrealis currently have a marginal victory.
My Egyptians have ignored a cease fire. They've managed to break out and save some armour near Chinese Farm with the help massive arty support. I'm now attempting a breakout near El Firdan.

Avoid this game at all costs. It gets tedious very quickly.
