We played the surrounded scenario from the rule book, the dense terrain made it a very challenging game, with line of sight being at a premium. The Nationalists in the village should really have taken the fight to the Republicans, instead they sat pretty to await the arrival of the reserves, which turned out to be a big mistake. By the time the reserves arrived the Republicans had closed down the village practically, however help was on the horizon. I decided that air support would be a random event, when three order dice for either side was drawn consecutively a dice off would occur to see which sides plane appeared, the Nationalists would add one to the score, having air superiority. They duly won the dice off, but disaster struck, the rookie pilot strafed the wrong target, pinning the Nationalist T26. This sort of luck dogged the Nationalists throughout the game, resulting in a resounding win for the Republic.
A challenging game, the Republic rose to the challenge, while my Nationalists ducked it.
Viva La Republica!
