Started another game over the weekend. I’m not all that enthused, but still want to play the game.
Shuffled my way through two turns, and now the action should start as the German’s meagre naval resources, loaded with troops, are steaming towards Leros and Kos.
As before, the British used the first two turns to capture Kos and Leros. The Italian unit on Kos resisted, elminating the island’s invader.
The Luftwaffe focused on attacking British naval units supporting the invasions. Several ships took hits, but their AAA fire was extremely accurate – eerily similar to the AAA performance in the recently completed Mission: Grenada game.
These naval units pulled back to Egypt, but cannot re-enter the fray until Turn 4. So, the British will have to rely on the RAF to blunt the German attacks.
I should get another turn or so in this evening.
