"We all have appointments with the past."
Rob hosted our January game night and re-introduced Battlegroup rules for 15mm WWII to Houston. We enjoyed two great games from the Market Garden scenario book, at squad level which is good for an introduction to the rules.
It's set on Sept. 17, 1944 right after the British landings at Wolfhezen. The Brit Para Recon Jeeps are driving down the Johannahoeveweg by a railroad embankment to reach Arnhem when they are ambushed by platoon from KG Kraftt.
This is a very challenging game for the British. We switched sides for game #2 and discussed lessons learned and still could not win as British. It's a very good learning game as it’s all small arms and jeeps and really a fun challenge.
Looking forward to our next game of Battlegroup at the canal bridge in Son with the 101st US Airborne. This will introduce artillery and tanks to us at a larger platoon level.
