Escape from Colditz - the Boardgame!
« on: January 26, 2021, 12:50:48 PM »
January again so time for our yearly game of Escape from Colditz, this year we have five players so with four teams escaping so the Jerries were in for a hard time!

We set our play time for two and a half hours but in the end extended it for an extra fifteen minutes we having such a good time!

So in summary...
The Germans: prevented 4 escapes attempts
The Dutch: scored 2 Home Runs and had 2 unsuccessful escape attempts
The Polish: scored 2 Home Runs
The Americans: scored 1 Home Run and had 2 unsuccessful escape attempts
The French: smoked about 300 packs of Gauloise cigarettes!

A bit of the action;
Dutch Kapitein Van der Dik (orange Pawn) by the main gate in disguise notice he is carefully blocking the Guard deployment space...the cunning beggar!

Dutch Kapitein Van der Balz tried to escape via the Dentistry but the Jerries caught him quite a way from safety!

Polish Officer Kowalski (green Pawn on board edge) on his way to freedom, the German Guards rolled a 'five' for their pursuit roll he easily outpaced them!

A full character filled AAR of the session is on the TSOG Blog...
