  23. In Match 73-11, Tim’s Allies with a bid of 1.5 defeated Karl’s Axis.

    The Axis conceded on turn 6 when the Allies pushed the POC to maximum of +10, after landing the 2nd convoy and sinking all 7 U-boats in the North Sea. Casualties were light in this game with only the Marat being sunk along with 12 U-boats.

    The Axis kept their fleet in being, but good ASW on turn 3, 4 and 6 kept the Kriegsmarine bottled up behind the blockade.
    This was a subsequent AREA game between us.

  24. Lee Kendter (Axis) vs Bruce Monnin (Allies) is over.
    This game was an example of it isn’t just getting average rolls, but how they are distributed.
    Turn 1 saw the crap out with neither 336 making Barents. Germany took Barents. +2 Germany
    Turn 2 saw 5 SR to Barents. 2 SR failed. Germany took Barents. +5 Germany
    Turn 3 saw 6 SR to Barents. 3 SR failed. Germany took Barents. +8 Germany
    At this point UK has 8 dead CA, 1 BC, 1 CV and 1 BB. Germany lost 1 CA. 3 Italians are dead.
    Turn 4 was quite with 3 full, and 1 partial repair for Germany.
    Turn 5 saw the standard North Sea sub break work. However, the 2nd Convoy landed. The lead is down to +1 Germany.
    Turn 6 saw on SR to the North Sea, and of course it failed. Germany comes up to play in the North Sea. The allies come to life, and the CV chase away the 2 big Germans. Despite that the Germans just squeak win. The Axis lead is back to +4.
    Turn 7 saw a run on Barents to kill the last Convoy. Bruce wins being the king of disables and the last convoy lands. The game is tied at zero.
    At this point there at 19 dead UK to 5 dead German ships.
    Bruce concedes at this point as he bid 1.5. There is no way for the UK to pick 2 PoC. Germany just squeaked in a victory despite all 3 convoys landing. Germany just one are the absurd number of failed SR.

  25. Vince Meconi”s Allies, bidding 2.0, defeated Rick Virost’s Axis. We have not played previously. The Axis played from behind almost from the start, sailing to the South Atlantic on turn 1 and winning the area, but suffering 2 lost
    German ships, one max damaged, and no ships able to oil. Allied losses were light. The Germans lost 3 more ships on turn 2 and thereafter, lost 2 more to the Russians. With LBA and U-boats impotent, the Allies landed all 3 convoys and the Axis could never catch up.

  26. Bob Jamelli’s Axis conceded at the beginning of T8 with Michael Ussery’s Allies leading by 4 POC before the bid of -2 POC is applied. The good news for the Germans is all 7 uboats are available, the bad news is the Kriegsmarine is badly depleted and is blocked by flags in Barents and North Sea. All the Italian cruisers are at the bottom of the S Atl. 2 Convoys made it to Russia and that made all the difference.
