British Assault in the Center
The battle saw the Allied forces as the attackers, so the German forces set up first. In the rules, they have to leave a certain
number of 2nd row squares empty, but they had some fortifications they could place in the squares they occupied.
The Allied forces then deployed, all in the first row of squares on their table edge. We had a mix of French and British forces
across the breadth of the table, including a mix of infantry, tanks and artillery, along with some mounted cavalry and armored
cars ready to support a breakthrough.
The action was quick and decisive from the start, as losses on each side quickly reduced their initial optimism. The Allies launched
a persistent gas bombardment on turn two, further adding to German woes. In the end, several Allied players managed breakthroughs,
although the Germans fought stubbornly and inflicted heavy losses on the attackers. Our group of almost all brand new players picked
up the rules quickly, and the game itself was a blast. We'll definitely be doing another Square Bashing event soon.
