Holidays and gaming have gone hand-in-hand for me since I was in junior high. All that free time while school's out is conducive to rolling dice with your friends. So it was nice today to break in my spouse-approved copy of the OGRE Designer's Edition since I was off work. I invited a gamer who lives nearby, and since he had his brother (another gamer) in from out of town, we played two Mark IIIs attacking the command post. The siblings each took an Ogre, and I played the defenders, setting up a four-howitzer defense with the command post in the upper right corner of the map.
At that point, the first cybertank (which hadn't even made it to the middle of the map) turned around to flee. Since my remaining units were three howitzers, a missile tank, and about 12 squads of infantry, there was nothing to catch it and keep it from escaping. I was able to get revenge on the CP-killer, however, immobilizing it and withdrawing my mobile units to let the howitzers finish it off.
