Finals Game 1

gotigerssc (Germans) 8 medals, 12 figures lost
Clexton27 (French) 1 medal, 18 figures lost

Hand size determined the outcome here. Jim had some good cards that were just not great for his situation - two Storm of Fire, for instance. I was adjacent to anything that could do real damage, which left him with long range shots on the SoF cards. The units that he could get up to my first trench line were promptly ganged up on and destroyed. Two of his tanks stayed bogged down for most of the match and I was able to take out one of those, and then a full strength tank that got sucked into my trench on the right side that suffered through never-ending fire. The other bogged down tank was down to 1 figure. Four French infantry units made it up to my first trench line and three of them were eliminated. The other was short supplied back to the baseline. In total, 9 of the 12 French infantry units were either still on the baseline or within 1 hex of it at the end of the game. I was also able to slip away injured units - my elites were both down to 1 figure. I claimed a time pressure medal early on.

Will schedule game 2 within the week.

Not great cards means useless? :)
8 1 speaks by itself. Worst unbalanced situation. Onto the second !

Finals Game 2

Clexton27 (Germans) 5 medals, 24 figures lost
gotigerssc (French) 8 medals, 17 figures lost

The French just kept pushing and pushing - eventually ending with a unit on each of the trench lines. Although, the third one did not count as a medal as it came on my final turn. I brought the tanks up early to help clear out the wire, and one bogged down and took a hit fairly quickly. Was planning to ditch it after failing a recover roll with 3 dice. Took one final chance on rolling 1 to recover and actually got the star. Tanks helped provide cover for my assault on the left, which is eventually what broke through to the third line. Lost a tank on that side that put the Germans up 4-2. Fighting then bounced to the center for a bit before shifting back to my left. On consecutive turns I was able to play Forward, Direct from HQ (7 units), and Infantry Assault to roll things up. Another thing that aided the push there was Short Supplying a field artillery.

Much more fun this game than the last one! Thanks again to Jim for a fun back and forth match.
