Campaign Conclusion:
Team Yankee / Red Thunder

Our ongoing store Team Yankee Campaign (Red Thunder!) wrapped up this month, progressing through in store battles with our regular cadre of Team Yankee players. This month we finished the third phase of the campaign, where for each battle there is a 50/50 chance of the NATO player being able to place the battle arrow, allowing a very fluid campaign situation.

Keeping with the focus in phases one and two, much of the action stayed in the north. The poor luck of the Warsaw Pact players on placing battle arrows continued, allowing NATO to continue their counterattacks throughout the phase.

When the dust settled, the Warsaw Pact penetration was reduced to a small area, encompassing Hamburg North, Schleswig-Holstein and Hamburg South. However, they did hold on to all of East Germany and Czechoslavakia, for a total of 32 Victory Points.

Nato, after their successful counterattacks, had liberated much of the West German territory initially lost. At the end of the campaign, they held a total of 65 Victory Points.

With NATO holding more than double the VPs that the Warsaw Pact held, we ended the campaign with a pretty clear NATO victory. The campaign was great fun, generating lots of interesting tabletop battles, and we had a wonderful time playing through it. We're looking forward to the upcoming campaign for Stripes, sometime in 2018!
