Battle report : "It ain't over till the fat lady sings …"

In the first game daylight came very early and allowed Jeronimon to target my commando's whilst swimming … I started on my left and was able to clear the bunker in two turns, but in the meantime my horonable opponent was able to bring his armour to the beach and wipe out a full strength infantry unit in a single roll. Payback was sweet and came in a 4 hits out of 4 dice rolled and 3 hits out of 3 dice rolled. In both cases this meant a medal more for me and a unit less for Jeronimon. But on the other flank, Jeronimon managed to destroy my flank even before my "grand attack" had started.

All in all, this was a very quick game (less than 15 minutes!!!) were we both rolled about 62/63% hits.

After battle 1 = VCX1302 -Jeronimon ==> 5-7

In the second game, sunlight arrived as promptly as before. Jeroen started to attack my center and shifted to my left flank. My troops stood their ground and even destroyed some units. (Too bad that second engineer unit survived …)

Instead of trying to hold back Jeroen on my left flank, I decided to "rush" towards medals on my right. I could pin Jeroen's forces on the beaches and made really good use of flags Wink

At the end of this battle, I had to face a tough dilemma : I needed one more medal, but which was the best choice to continue??? Should roll 7 dice against a 2 fig inf unit in the sea? Or should I try to eliminate one of Jeroen's units on the medal positions? A tough choice … I went for the "easy" medal and finished the game with a lead of 1 medal. (Instead of trying to deprive Jeroen one more medal.

After battle 2 = VCX1302 -Jeronimon ==> 12-11

The third game … I started foolishly and after a couple of rounds I had only 1 tank fig left. All the rest had gone … I pressed the attack in the center, but failed to destroy the units. Jeronimon's troops had a better aim and claimed medal after medal.

I lost this battle with a three medal difference …

After battle 3 = VCX1302 -Jeronimon ==> 15-17

In the fourth and final game, my artillery managed to weaken the opponents units, but failed to detroy the units. And Jeroen managed to drag his 1 fig infantry to safety. At the end of the game, Jeroen had 4 single fig infantry units on the board. Too bad they were not linked … That's why I had to save my "air attack" to be played as my very last card.

I this fourth game, luck favoured me! Jeroen's armour unit had to roll 3 times to destroy my single fig arty on my left flank. 4 misses, 3 misses and finally three hits in a single roll!

After 4 games the dust settled and the fog of war lifted. And I came out victorious with the smallest of margins : 1 medal!

After battle 4 = VCX1302 -Jeronimon ==> 21-20

Sorry Jeroen, it's a pity only one of us can move on to the finals! But you really made it a tough competition and yes, I've learned for these two games! Thanks for these tense battles!

I'm looking forward to facing you once more for a game IRL after the corona lockdown has finished.

Don't be like your plastic soldiers … but stay healhty! Very Happy

Allright! So far, so good … One more opponent to face … Sam1812! Yes, that's the same guy that eliminated me from the World Boardgame Championships this very year! Will I get my payback? Or will Sam continue his (lucky) streak with another scalp …
