Absolutely EPIC game of Hylan Valley

Post by Kerensky » Tue Nov 08, 2011 10:38 am

Had to share from the AAR forum, check it out!

British went from an 8-1 Victory Hex lead to a 5-4 down to the wire game with only three mighty Churchills to block an absolute avalanche of German units from reaching that final Victory Hex and achieving ultimate victory!
By turn 28, it was 6 to 3. On turn 29, it was 5 to 4. Can the Germans continue the trend and make it 4 to 5 on Turn 30?

You know what though... gone are my days of easy full 9 Victory Hex Total Victories. Our players are getting and better every day. Now every time I play Hylan Valley... I don't know if I'm going to win until turn 30. I hate that, I want to know I can walk into a game and win hands down. Now I gots to play all serious! lol :wink:

The conclusion:
The situation in the South, practically a ghost town.

But in the North, the mighty Churchill have stubbornly held their ground.

With just a little more time and a few more turns... scvftw would have won. I stalled *just* long enough though. Just barely.
And it came at a HORRIBLE cost, but that's part of the fun! I lost more units of every single category except artillery.

Final core, after 30 turns of "edge of your seat" action:
Kerensky's British 5 Victory Hexes.
scvftw's Germans 4 Victory Hexes.
