Having an itch to play some moderns a few of us pooled our collections to do a Modern Syria What If game where the US sends in forces to rescue beleaguered aid workers from a Syrian militia. For rules we used Iron Ivan Games, SEEK OUT CLOSE WITH AND DESTROY by Chalfant Conley.
Tony and I played the Syrians while Rob's US forces debuted on the table against them. Both groups moved to secure the aid workers through the rubble strewn streets.
Rob quickly discovered that a Bradley is not T55 proof and that using them as a battle taxi works a lot better. I learned that a LAW makes a mess of a guy when trapped inside a hovel.
In the end the game went 2hrs and ended with both sides only securing 1 aid worker each. Lots of fun with explosions, armor and good friends!
More to come,
