First things first (no, it’s not about maps this time) Carter has released a couple of The Sand Table episodes (meaning comented games) This one could have “cat and mouse” or “the waiting game” for title. Lot’s of tension and uncertainty. Check it out if you haven’t already.
Now, the report.
This one was an example of how much we fear and respect each other. I took us about 5 minutes to star engaging and shooting specials. It was the start of a great night for Darix.
Strange choice for so few players but it turned out a great match. They got the centre, we go the top right pit from which I bravely ran away as fast as I could leaving Darix fighting a partial 2vs1 he almost won. Then a couple of flanks and some mines turned over the scoreboard. I enjoyed that one a lot.
After a lot of months absent PhyberOptix paid us a visit. Quite rusty but that let us build some spicy 2vs3 quite balanced. In this one we played a kind of WWI trench front with them slowly pushing our lines and finally breaking through cornering our remaining units. It was damn close.
A deceiving game. We landed bottom left. They had top left. We quickly decided to run and set a base in the bottom right crater leaving behind some nice presents in the form of mine packs… Judging from Darix curses and laments, It worked great. From there we just had to defend our perimeter and eventually (again) run away when things started to turn ugly.
Aaaaand… that’s all for today my beloved little barbie collecting ladies. More in few hours on the ground!
