Flames of War Scenario Play Through
1 Tank Co (17 Shermans)
1 Armored Infantry Platoon
1 Tank Destroyer Section
1 Ranger Platoon (variable entry along the left side of the board
1 Armored Car Platoon
The Scenario is loosely based on the Barkman's Corner scenario that's published in the Cobra campaign book. We were able to get about 10 turns in before calling it a game and I think we didn't mangle the rules too badly other than confusing some of the finer aspects of firepower tests. It was a very fun game which ended up being a draw.
I also learned to fear US bazooka's as they put the hurt on my assault guns.
All-in-all it was a great game and a good chance the re-learn the rules. One drawback of the FOW system is that there are lot's of tables for unit stats. At Ernie's suggestion, I will be making some summary tables for each player that represent his forces to try and reduce the page flipping. Hopefully I'll also have a bit better understanding of the rules next time also. Still it was a fun time
