[b]FESTUNG: Las Vegas 13 – June 15 & 16, 2013 (Platinum Hotel) [/b]
The campaign did not go historically to say the least. The Allies unfortunately got off to a slow initial assault being repulsed in all but one of the opening round battles. The Allies did manage to break to the coast with their first win after a bold exploitation move.
They were then cut from supply but managed to make an attack on Tunis and capture it briefly throwing all of the German forces out of supply. Meanwhile the Axis continued to cut back supply routes of the Allies as well which made for some interesting battles in Round 3 and 4. The Axis counter-attack in round 4 succeeded barely in removing the Allies from around Tunis and a fortuitous initiative roll on the first battle ensured that the Axis would win the campaign.
Final result was Axis – 285 to Allied 90 VPs. The Allies were in a difficult situation due to the initial round one losses.
