Picking Fights: Vietnam

The HPS game Vietnam is beginning to grow on me.

I've already got someone to play me in a dry run so I can learn the rules. This game is set up much like a traditional wargame, and each unit represents a squad, or squad weapon. In this skirmish, the "P" stands for Pinned, and as the NVA, I've been able to Pin one of my American opponent's squads. But, he's got two of mine.

The larger battle has two separate American platoons, and right now my overall strategy is to keep them separated and defeat each with superiority of numbers, and wait for the the rest of the US force to come rolling in. Let's see if I'm successful.
