Round 2
Mark McG (Germans): 8 medals 23 figures lost
MichalK (Brits): 5 medals 21 figures lost

An early kill on a bogged Male tank in the Centre took off some of the immediate pressure, but the other 2 tanks were unstoppable. Fortunately the British infantry were helpless in the open as the British tanks took all the orders, and the German artillery took revenge. One Recon card played for a Medal.

One note on the VASSAL setup, the Notes say 2 Special Personnel, but the board edge indicator has 1. It should be 2 SP.

Round 1
EZPickins (Brit) 8 medals 13 lost
Gabriele (Ger) 7 medals 32 lost

The British advanced with the tanks leading the way. Early action on the right/right center resulted in the loss of 1 tank and infantry in return for an mg and infantry. British infantry and a tank were now in the forward trenches as well. Most of the action then shifted to the left where the German frontline was eliminated. A tank bogged for a time but survived to advance on
secnd line and take out the mg to secure the win. Good thing as time was about to run out .

I very fun game against a super opponent. We made quite a few errors as we were rusty with me being the worse.

Round 1
Mark McG (Germans): 8 Medals 21 figures lost
Twan (British): 5 Medals 18 figures lost

killed off 2 Infantry in No Man's Land, and then some lucky rolling killed off the British tank on the Right. British tank on Left bogged down, and eventually succumbed to close assault by the Bombers. Bombers also used Trench Raid to polish off some annoying Marksmen. A Recon card somewhere in there completed the victory.

British scored 1 Medal for the 1st trench, and 4 kills. 2 Medals for tanks makes them attractive targets (aside from being deadly to fight).

NML shelling markers are missing on VASSAL scenario, but is middle 3 rows, wire to wire.

Red carpet for you, Michal ;-). We are now six with Twan, so we can go with the standard format of two groups for the heats and then semifinals and finals. My hope is to follow this with a new MT with the French expansion, too.

If there is a place, I would gladly play in such distinguished group :) Simply, I suggest something smaller. and if that proves to be a success, something larger then with French expansion?

As a matter of fact, and I apologize for that, I believed you were not interested, Michal. We are five with you, so a simple round-robin is ok. Or, with a sixth participant, we may use the standard format.

Recently (due to personal reasons) I really have very limited time. Thus I would prefer as usual round robin, with two best player being in final, playing for the 1st place.

I will do a last call today and wait for another week. If we will still be four by then, what about a double-quad format (so six matches for each player switching sides, like MT 3) ?

Why not? It will add some strategical thinking and more spice.
