All three battles were limited attacks, two of them were tied with equal terrain objective points at the end of the day (game end). Going to the "golden point" rule where the forces carry on using the night fight rule until one side at the end of a turn has captured more terrain objective points.
Game 1 - Commonwealth forces launched a limited Attack to push back recent German gains.
|End of game 1 as Commonwealth forces take the woods and achieve victory with the "golden point" rule.|
|Game 2 had a second close finish and the "golden point" rule applied again with victory going to the attacking German forces.|
|Mid game 3 as Commonwealth forces attempt to break through German defences and secure the buildings. The were to run out of time.|
The telling point is the remaining supplies. Commonwealth forces have sufficient supplies to under take 6 more limited attacks or 3 full scale attacks, while German supplies restrict them to 2 more counterattacks.
Limited attacks achieve a win on 2 out of ever 3 occasions, while full scale attacks have always been successful. Doing the maths suggests using limited attacks Commonwealth can count on adding 4 zones to achieve the 14 zones. 13 zones are required to win the game. However, with two counterattacks the Germans could hold out, but would most likely have to win both limited attack games to achieve a campaign win.
