A few weeks back, Jason reached out to us about learning how to play Flames Of War. He discovered that he lived quite close to me, and after some scheduling conflicts we were able to figure out a day to play! Jason had not played Flames Of War before, but had painted up an absolutely beautiful Cavalry Recon force out of Bridge at Remagen. Knowing this was to be his first game, I decided to play both a historical and a static opponent. I went with SS Westfalen. We rolled for the mission and came up with Hold the Line. I knew it would be tough on him to punch through my lines, but I was also glad my turns would be quick so we could focus on walking Jason through the rules!
Crescent Root terrain!
At this point, it's gotten quite late and we decide to call the game- The US certainly has a chance to fight through the wall of infantry, but it may take quite a while! 6-1 to the Germans, though neither side lost any major combat strength. Consider it a recon in force by the US!
