This was a great weekend of gaming for me Two games in Two days!
I was able to participate in a Flames of War battle at 3 Trolls on Saturday morning. This battle was based on an encounter near Sidi Bou Zid in Tunisia.

Sine I have pushed a lot of German armor lately I opted to play Americans. Dick and I did better then historic American but not by much.
The Germans came straight at us and a long range fire fight ensued. I got the drop on Warren's Panzer IIIs after they double but though I bailed 3 of the 4 I did not kill any. My two Sherman Platoons were holing their own again Warren's two Panzer III platoons I until Curtis' Panzer IVs started sniping at me. Dick mean time lost all the armor on his Flank and only knocked out a few tanks. At this point the results were Obvious so we called the game as German Victory.
