Sicily, 1943. Last player Turn of the game, it is the US MPh. In order to win, the American player must control 4 multi-hex stone buildings. N4 and L6 are both Italian controlled. What can the US player do to ensure his best chance of victory?
Contest #93 Solution:
The solution to this one is actually quite simple. I deliberately tried to complicate the matter and deceive by displaying the sM, WP, and S numbers on the back of the counters as well as throwing in nonsense about the wind and the date. The answer is, start in platoon movement for 1 MP and even if one tank is destroyed by the ATG, the second tank can scoot out of sight on the second MP and proceed to exit the board without ever getting back into LOS of the Hun. We had 2 correct entries; Mika Harviala and Rick N. Since there are only two of you, I will award the prize to both of you instead of drawing one name. I seem to remember a third correct entry but cannot find it so if you answered this contest with the correct solution as well, please contact me for your prize.
