The Germans are flooding through Belgium. A small British expeditionary force is in danger of being cut off. Most importantly, an important scientist (there are 3 on the table and the Germans don't know which one) and his/her research are in danger of being captured in the roll up.
The British must cross the board length-wise to get the scientist to an approaching submersible. Meanwhile, the Germans are closing in from the side. I proved a nail biter to the end.

Don't know what this second phase of life will bring, but I'm sure there will be a lot of dice, beer and miniatures.
