The first campaign tabletop games have been concluded:
- The opening battles around Elsenborn saw the US rescue their threatened artillery parks, but lose the better part of two Infantry Divisions.
- The Eupen road stayed firmly shut to the Germans.
- Houffalize did not fall but was masked and the roads to Bastogne seized.
- An attempt to seize Malmedy on the march was rebuffed.
