Decided to try the boy out on a GEV scenario, a nice simple game of 'Ceasefire Collapse'. A straight slugfest between two equal forces. In this case, just a small game w/ 10 armor units and 10pts of infantry to give him the idea. I spent about a half hour explaining the more advance rules such as terrain and stacking. We left out the more difficult options like overrun and spillover fire for a future game.
Using the classic 'G1' map, pieces were picked and placed w/ the box between us, blocking the view. This is how it turned out (Him black, me burgundy):
His forces were very well placed for a defensive fight w/ a Hwz, 2 Super Hvy's, 1 Hvy Tank, a Lt Tank, 2 Lt GEV's, GEV-PC and a GEV.
First moves, he separated his forces and moved them out of the protection of the Howitzer umbrella allowing me to piecemeal them. A rush by my right wing fast movers got crushed as they crossed the river though:
After ganging up my armor on his 2nd SuperHvy, I managed to rush down the road and eliminate his Howitzer.. By that point, he'ld taken out most of my GEV's and Infantry.
