As a guide to the perplexed, the scenario score should be:

US wins 2: #1 and #10

Germany wins 6: #2; 4-7; 9

Draws 2: #3 and #8

I originally submitted #3 as a (minor) German victory, but (see AAR) had missed counting a lost 81mm step which shifted the play into the draw range. In the AAR, the play now shows as a Draw.

Sounds like the dams are mainly intact then :-)

Congratulations PY!

cool.

Wow, managed 14 games in 30 days. Wont be able to pull that off this month, but should have Staff Sergeant in October, anyway. Some really quiet days at work helped, so I keep some games at the office just in case. :)

Regarding Infantry Attacks and Modern War

I have opened a thread in the PG-HQ Forum to discuss the potential inclusion of the IA and MW series into the HQ. If you have an opinion on this topic, please express it!

I changed my mind; I think IA/PG/PGM: (Infantry Attacks, Panzer Grenadier, Panzer Grenadier Modern) should all share the same data bank. I mean, the counters, maps and scenario format are the same, only the rules are a bit different but nothing that would be noticed on AAR recording or data/ information lookups.

I guess we are slacking! :)

More I think a reflection that the introduction of the 4th edition rules have had and of course that the veteran players need to log more plays to gain promotion.

2014-08-02 08:10

What? I only have 72 to go to my next promotion...

2014-08-02 09:54

We are all busy playing IA because of the 100 Year anniversary of WWI. ;P (Just kidding)

Been on a bit of a PG shelving for solo games as there are many appealing other games out there. Will continue with my FtF's but the solo stuff has come to an end. Also as Blackcloud said with the 100th year anniversary of WW1 and some of the 150th of ACW have drawn my eye.

2014-08-02 18:58

Got the last 2 games needed for corporal done 1 and 2 days too late for this round. Will put me that much closer to SGT next time.

And it has been as long as since Caesar's assassination that a campaign ribbon has been earned, er, I mean, awarded. ::cough::

Thanks for the reminder. I completely forgot! v_v
