Fathers Day game - Fighting Formations: Grossdeutschland Infantry Division

Game of Fighting Formations: Grossdeutschland Infantry Division with my Dad on Fathers Day.
Think we played this once before and had forgotten how good it is.

Played the introductory scenario to refresh memory and then delved into scenario one which is essentially a tank-fest, and none the worse for it.

My T34 Platoons had easy pickings of German Infantry until a Company of Panzer IIIs appeared.
Whilst the Pz IIIs have trouble dealing with the T34s frontally there are enough of them to swarm the T34s and when the PzIVF2s arrive the potency of German weaponry is suddenly apparent.
By the time my reinforcing Company arrived it was a foregone conclusion...........

Love the game play and interactions of resource management with Orders and Initiative in the game combined with units and playable systems and the asset cards are nice touch.
Lots of decisions to make each phase of turn.
