Yesterday we had the Orlando Wargamers group gather for a bunch of historical consim-ing. Loads of fun.
We decided to play the Iwo Jima overlord scenario for Memoir ‘44 to honor of the 71st Anniversary.
First game setup. Connor, Charlie and Sean are playing the Japanese while Mike, Jeremy and myself are assaulting Iwo Jima.
It didn’t go well for the Americans.
Next, Mike, Jeremy and myself take the role of the Japanese.
The Marines are not able to take Mount Suribachi.
Gotta say this game was played better by the three of us. Even Charlie and his team played better. The game came down to a single man left, needing to reach the top of Mount Suribachi. Alas, he was unable.
It was a great day.
If you live around Orlando, or ever find yourself in O-Town, feel free to check out OrlandoGamers.net. We would love for to play some games with you!
Gorgeous game though.
