#Christmas2016: (@BrilliantGames) #SantaClaus Army’s Fall

There was no other possible ending to this battle:

At least, as the battle presented to us here. So many mistakes made it’s not even funny.

Right off the bat the Penguins had a 2.75 to 1 advantage over the Santa Claus (SC) army. You can tell by the end of the video that the Penguin army’s leaping of the ledges did nothing for them, but they died in such small numbers that it did not help the SC army.

Second, the Penguins had the high ground. Honestly, even Sun Tzu knew the high ground was important:

With regard to precipitous heights, if you are beforehand with your adversary, you should occupy the raised and sunny spots, and there wait for him to come up. If the enemy has occupied them before you, do not follow him, but retreat and try to entice him away.

The SC army had taken the narrow pass of a box canyon, but did not install a garrison:

With regard to narrow passes, if you can occupy them first, let them be strongly garrisoned and await the advent of the enemy. Should the army forestall you in occupying a pass, do not go after him if the pass is fully garrisoned, but only if it is weakly garrisoned.

The Penguins was able to surround the SC army at the entrance of the narrow pass of the box canyon and push them back with their superior numbers. If the SC army had installed a garrison or had been a heavy infantry (the killing of the very last Santa Claus showed how weak a class of infantry the SC army was), then it might have been a different story altogether.

Up and down, the Santa Claus army made one bad mistake after another. Nothing else gets you in the spirit of Christmas than seeing an army of 11,000 Penguins gut the weaker 4,000 Santa Claus army.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

#FridayFiction: #100WordChallenge | “Battle Of Wall”

“But why Wall?”

Wall, South Dakota was not our first choice. However Canada military intelligence saw a large rookery of Emperor Penguins coming up through the Badlands and we were not going to make the same mistakes.

“We waited at Wall for the Emperor Penguins. We had hope the dry and misshapen Badlands would sap the penguins the will to fight.”

“In your words, what happen?”

“We destroyed the entire rookery. The Canadian forces was able to crush the main Emperor Penguins group while American irregulars picked off the rest of the flightless. We learned a lot that day, eh?”

Somehow, we return to some World War Penguin history with help from today’s inspiration. I know it is kind of silly, but I can’t help it. I’m in a bad mood and I want to laugh. Enjoy this cheese.

#WednesdayFiction: #100WordChallenge | “World War P”

“Yeah, The I-4 Campaign was horror story.”

“Tell me.”

“We knew they were coming, the Emperor Penguins. However they arrived in Florida faster than we expected.

“Using tactics for human-to-human combat, we were completely unprepared for the cuteness they brought to bear. The Emperor Penguin is no match to us one-to-one, but there must have been 50-to-one against us. Soldiers would run out of bullets just before being overrun. It was a complete route! I was there!

“We had learned from that mistake, but not before the Emperor Penguins came up through Mexico. By that time, it was too late.”

It is #PenguinAwarenessDay …So how much do you know of your “World War Penguin” history?
