WWIII (not a typo)

Flames of War Demo – Team Yankee!
January 4th, 2017
By Lance Mathew

With the weather at -40˚C something; it was unbelievably cold and I expected all those who told me that they were interested in WWIII (yes, World War Three – you read that correctly) would not be there. Again, I was wrong – two months in a row now – everyone showed up Alex, Brett, Chris, James, Jason, Justin, Kyle, and Michael. They had all braved the extreme cold to come and try out the Cold War at its hottest!

Everyone was keen to try out the game. However, everyone wanted the newest players to give it a go while the veterans stood back and observed. So, Alex stepped up and wore the Warsaw Pact hat while Brett gave the NATO’s West Germans a shot. Alex and Brett rolled up Counter Attack with Alex defending with half of his troops.

Brett was quickly confused but Justin stepped in to assist while I gave simple suggestions to Alex. Alex began to bash Brett and Justin’s West Germans with all his support platoons. First went the NATO AA (anti-aircraft) clearing the way for a reserve platoon of Hinds to eventually arrive a few turns later (which raked the Leopard IIs and broke the platoon). Next, went three quarters of the Luchs on the table to Shilka direct fire. Justin and Brett remained on the defensive and eventually broke when Alex finally deployed his ambushing T72s.

Thanks again for Justin in loaning his gorgeously painted West Germans. I hope when the DDR (Deutsche Demokratische Republik / East German / Volksarmee) is out they can face off in a terrific struggle! This coincidently is what the Warsaw Pact troops are painted in the pictures. I am anxiously waiting for the release of the Volksarmee book (expect it at Tramp’s any day) to finish building the army – expect the next Team Yankee Demo to include the DDR!
