Here’s the historical situation:

Date: March 29, 1941
Dire Dawa, Ethiopia (Abyssinia)
Italian / South African (Dire Dawa Colonial police Garrison with Assistant Governor and Escorting Police and 1st Battalion, Transvaal Scottish, 1st South African Infantry Brigade Group)
Defender: Italian (Mutineers) (XL Battaglione Fanteria Coloniale, XVII Brigata Coloniale, Africa Orientale Italiana)

The days of Africa Orientale Italiana were finally coming to a close in Abyssinia, as South African and Nigerian forces continued a now largely-unopposed advance to Addis Ababa. Italian colonial forces were deserting and surrendering en masse, in embarrassing numbers. On the evening of 28 March, elements of two battalions of the XVII Colonial Brigade began to mutiny.


This is our AAR commentary of the 3-player scenario “Aiding the Local Constabulary. None of us have played a 3-player scenario before, nor do any of us have any real experience with 3-player scenarios. But we all agreed, once the scenario had wrapped up, that it was incredibly fun and offers a new ASL play experience to players who have used the system for years and decades.

There will certainly be more 3-player AARs from us in the future, so stay tuned for those. In the meantime, find a couple friends and fire up this scenario (there are only a few specifically designed 3-player scenarios) and get to trash talking!
