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.
