Thanks, Doc. I believe you played as well as you could with the cards you had. You made strategic and tactical choices, but I don't think you made any mistakes or bad choices.

As you know, it takes an average of 12 dice to kill an artillery. You rolled 13 dice and didn't get the second hit. In the first game, I had been fortunate enough to kill it on a Finest Hour with my engineer and tank.

While you had some bad-luck misses, you also had that weak infantry on your far right that survived several dice from me. And when I advanced my artillery to threaten the two 1-figs in your back row on your left, you were fortunate enough to immediately double-flag it with your Finest Hour.

It was a thriller of a match, and the end result easily could have been very different.


You're correct about the organization of the tournament. Lucky and I decided on the format and the rules, and we decided which tournaments would qualify to send contestants (based on the number of players who participated in them). We defined guidelines for the scenarios, but we did not choose the scenarios.

The scenarios were submitted by jdrommel and LooneyLlama. Because Lucky and I were both competing this year, the scenarios were selected by mrmanley31. There was one scenario we rejected, because it gave too few possibilities to one of the players on one flank. The divisions for phase 1 were selected randomly by mrmanley31. The pairings for phase 2 have been based on the players' scores.


Congrats Sam on your win. Hmmm, could this be another WBC winner to follow up with a Champions Trophy win?
