Battle Game 6 consists of Scenarios 33 through 41.
The situation along the southern approaches to the Naktong River was very chaotic in early September with the North Koreans crossing the Naktong River in several points along the southern front. They had crossed at the Kihang ferry and captured Agok. They had also used underwater bridges to cross at night in many areas along the Naktong River. Nearing the end of their strength, the NKPA attacked with desperate fury. This is the time when U.S., United Nations and ROK forces would fight off some of the toughest North Korean attacks of the war.
As in the previous battle game most of the United Nations high command had left Walker to his nasty, brutal battle along the Pusan Perimeter while they planned the Inchon invasion. There were some positive aspects to this arrangement. Walker was able to do pretty much anything he wanted as long as he didn't want anything from the amphibious force. In addition, during the first couple weeks in September he had all the air support that could be flown. This was just enough to hold against the NKPA final offensive.
To the NKPA the campaign was nearly over. They had made Americans run and had bottled up the UN forces into the Pusan Perimeter. Any breakthrough of any significance could well be fatal to the ROK and their UN allies. The attacks during this period were not only constant but pressed home with all the drive that a supremely confident force could muster.

|1 Errata Item|
The 8-3 Marine Infantry counter appears in most of the Saipan 1944 and Marianas 1944 scenarios, replacing the 10-3 DF valued Marine counters for those scenarios and is currently published in the most recent Saipan printing.

Ok, based on my results:
33: North Korean Victory
35: American Victory
36: American Victory
37: North Korean Victory
38: North Korean Victory
39: British/ROK Victory
40: American Victory
41: North Korean Victory
Certain objectives and terrain and scenarios must be won by each side and according to my results, it was a Draw for this section/group of scenarios but a very fun bunch to play.
