Operation Compass: Tamar West - Operational Planning Map

As the attack on Tamar West unfolded through the Zoom sessions, as a British player, I tried to keep track of the assault as it progressed up the board. From the turret top of the Matilda I tried to keep a careful annotation, but as you can see the continuous movement made my hand very shaky (see below, hard black ink for the first session, red for the second phase of the attack  ): 

The intensity of the artillery fire is in proportion to the density of the ink. Respect is due to teh Italian gunners who stayed with their guns until the last.

But is it air.

I'm impressed by your attempt to keep track of what was going on. There were certainly shells dropping all over the place, mainly from the British heavies:)

Well if you are not rolling dice or moving figures, my fingers feel as if they have to do something ;)
