This was another fun tank war game, even if we played to a tie. The Germans held the bridge and the Russian took the farm. One thing that is a bummer about tank wars if that there is a good chance of a tie if there are even number of objectives. Its hard to declare a clear winner in those situation, however it was still a fun game. Unlike our last game, were nearly every tank was knocked out we had a lot of hits, but few kills. Well until next time keep rolling dice.
