On Saturday the Scandinavian Lardies had a day out at what will from now on be known as IglooCon. It is actually called FlemCon because it is held at the College Campus in Flemingsberg.
The scenario was a continuation of the Barbarossa game we played at PengCon with all drop-in players taking the roles of commanders in a Kampfgruppe thrown together of anything that was near-by and ordered to move as fast as possible along the road to Minsk as reports indicated light resistance. The reports were half right. The resistance was thin, but it was hard. It took the Germans all day to make it halfway across the table and many a brave Aufklärungs soldier fell flushing out the Soviet troops waiting in ambush.
The Soviet side was handled by our own pseudo-celebrity Fredric and his trusty Commissar Roos. Umpires were yours truly and Laffe, with Jocke being Chief Intelligence Officer, in charge of explaining the rules to the players. It certainly helps that he works in a nuclear power plant and can look calm, collected and relaxed under any conditions!
We had a great game, everyone had fun (I think) and a several players left with out info folder, hopefully some of them will contact us again. IABSM3 is a very, very good system and the game ran smooth most of the time, even though we had to stop and look up rules a few times.
