More Combat Commander

Played three more scenarios from Combat Commander last night this time three from the Mediterranean supplement.
First was Fallschirmjager versus New Zealanders near Maleme airfield Crete.
This one saw NZ triumphant as I was able to get sufficient units off-board (double victory points) to build a good lead when sudden death kicked in.
Second scenario was set in Poland in 1939 with my Polish bunch suffering an absolute plethora of favourable German events (two reinforcements which included an 81mm mortar Radio) Hero, and several selecting a card to discard from my hand.
With a single discard capability (Poles use French deck) the Polish proved unequal to their attacking task.
Last scenario had a mass of Romanians attacking Russians in 1941.
A really good one this one that went to the wire (we were both only 2 unit losses from Surrender) despite my accumulating a huge VP advantage.
Romanians use Italian deck (not just as bad a French but close) but their second line units suffer once broken as low morale (6) means they are susceptible to Rout cards played against them.
Lots of melee in this one.
Great stuff again from a great game system.
