( you can read the book with the same title here https://www.armyupress.army.mil/Portals/7/combat-studies-institute/csi-books/the-last-100-yards-lsco-volume-9.pdf )



But the thread is not entirely about the book... well actually not focused on the book but rather the game of the same name



Having struggled before with creating something to expose the game and show it in the table I decide, after letting some dust settle to do an attempt again, and while the written word is unsurpassed ( seriously, the other thread based on proper writing format are phenomenal! ) for an After Action Report my attempts at a more live reporter should suffice for now.

Series started somewhat a while ago and the idea is to go steady and explain as much as play the missions ( which are designed in a way as to apply the rules step by step with each mission incorporating more than the preceding one ). Also made the case of exposing a bit of how the game feels and what type of dynamics the game has in its design in introductory segments.





And finally the clock starts ticking.




On the sidenote, been working on Tabletop Sim versions just for fun and to work as a demo. Eventually made my way to Mike so I can have high res imagery for TTS and put out a visually respectable module to demonstrate and teach others.

Snappy salute !

That's most excellent

Looking forward to your take on the game and it's mechanics. I have it and have only played a small amount but really enjoy it.

Nice! I need to do a playthrough of this one, especially since Airborn and (most of all) Pacific are on the way.  8)

Along with the videos and once I get the TTS box in full high resolution glory I can GM some games if folks up to it.
