N. Koreans stumble into barbed wire in recent Cross Fire game

Monday, February 21, 2011



Jack Breen designed his first CF scenario. The scenario broke some of the rules of CF scenario design, e.g. no unbroken LOS across the table, but because of the ample smoke rounds available for both sides it worked quite well.

THE ACTION AT PUNG HO
The premise was that the main house of a large plantation overlooked the Nakong River and would provide excellent observation over any attempt by the NKPR to cross into the Pusan perimeter. Both sides sent a company sized force to occupy the position and deny it to the enemy. The result was a race of death!
