WWII: Two 60 point games of COMBAT: WWII

Played two quick games of COMBAT: WWII today with my son-in-law Barry.  Barry played Germans while I commanded the US Army.  Both games resulted in American victories but the second game was much closer.  60 points or less is a very fast and small game.  Both games played out in 20 to 30 minutes each.  A standard game is played at 100.

OOB Germans
10 Regular Infantry
1 HMG Squad (Regulars)
1 Mortar Squad (Regulars)
1 Pz I Tank (Regulars)
1 Pz VI Tiger I Tank (Veterans)

OOB United States
11 Regular Infantry
1 Ranger Squad
3 Jeeps with HMG (Regulars)
1 M4 Sherman (Veterans)

The Sherman takes out the Pz 1 but the big Tiger is lurking around the hill.

The Tiger's crew is confident of a quick kill on the Sherman but they rolled a 1.

The Sherman spins and takes out the Tiger's main gun.

American troops enter the destroyed building for cover against the advancing Germans.
