(no end of game picture)


SCENARIO WINNER : AXIS

Victory Points
Axis – Pervertico :: 170
Allies – Budg Vic :: 86

This game round was insane… The Allies seemed to have victory clinched when they moved Bazooka Joe and his BBQ Rangers & the Mickey to a very strategic position on the Axis side of the map. No deployment for Axis down the middle, and with the placement of the Tank Traps, walkers weren’t able to get close without having to waste shots on the Tank Traps. Ultimately luck prevailed for the Axis and they were victorious, in the last possible second. Although, should the last attack had failed, the Axis still had 40 points to use and bring into the battle that could have been placed adjacent to the remaining BBQ Ranger. Great strategy on the Allies part, but the constant flow of new units for the Axis starting turn 4 was just too much for them to handle… Perhaps it would have been better if Joe and his BBQ Rangers and the Mickey had stayed put in their strategically safe zone. Time and experience will tell. That’s one thing I do love about this game. Everybody who plays improves with each game, regardless of the luck of their roles.
