My Friday night began after a little over 2 hour drive, checking into the hotel and getting some dinner with my grandfather at the Long Horn steak house. Back at the Con, I kicked off a weekend of gaming with the highly anticipated WW1 Chain of Command game that I had pre-registered for. Some pictures of the board and fight below.
As the German player we had to make a night time raid on a British trench line and kidnap the British captain that had much needed knowledge about the recent build up and activity of the British forces.
The Germans had 2 rifle squads and 2 storm trooper squads and had already made a breach in the barbed wire at two places and had advanced a rifle squad into British trench.
The British players were surprised-on just the second German initiative a German rifle section close assaulted a British squad and wiped out the entire squad with thier junior leader. Very bad dice rolling by the British dropped their Force Morale to 3! From there they could never really bounce back to mount any real resistance.
