cold, tired and hungry troops in the Ardennes region faced off
in the first ever WBC tournament for that new game from Lost
In the one-deck, 5-player Final, Mike Wojke could not combat
the effects of several bad die rolls resulting in massive loss
of combat troops, and a near total lack of leaders.
Dan Hoffman lost the Citie Du Cheval only to gain Hill 205
which he ended up losing at the very end of the game.
Gordon Rodgers made several successful attacks including one
airborne drop against Wojke and a 1 to 5 attack versus the River,

for the others to overcome as he climbed from fourth to first
place as the action came to a close.
