Greetings fellow grognards, just a quick post to plug Gaelcon 2021. Along with other Irish gamer's I shall be teaching a war game via vassal and discord to interested Gaelcon attendees on Sunday 24th October from 3pm. The game I have offered to teach is "A Victory Lost".
From Board Game Geek- ": Crisis in Ukraine, is a simulation of the intense mobile fighting between the Axis and Soviet forces in the southwestern USSR, from the completion of the Soviet encirclement in December 1942 to German Field Marshall von Manstein's famous "Backhand Blow" counterattack. The Soviet forces aims to trap and eliminate the Axis forces that are in full retreat from the Caucasus, while the Axis forces must successfully withdraw and attempt to restore the front line by launching a desperate counterattack. The slightest mistake might turn victory into a rout."
Details of the wargame event are below. Go on, release your inner wargamer, you know you want to.
