In the end, the Bumpus-led team was able to get the Leg Lamp and the Turkey to their headquarters. The Can of Simonize & Blue Ball were close to the garage, but the person carrying it died before getting in to safety. One of the Department Store Elves had the Fra-Gee-Lay Crate, but was not close to the Garage. The Ralphie-led side was unable to recover any of the Supply tokens back to their Headquarters; though at game's end Ralphie's Mom did have possession of the Slippers, and the Police Captain had the BB Gun.
The game was a ton of fun to run, and the players all seemed to enjoy it as well.

After my game, Buck ran a Pulp Sci-Fi game using his "Combat Parol" rules. This scenario featured an assortment of Aliens invading a small Midwest town in 1948. The town is being defended by the US Army, and the Aliens needed to cross the length of the table in order to secure a special part of a wrecked spaceship at the far end of the table.

In the end, the aliens were able to push one of their tanks through our line, and reached the objective, securing it for the victory. It was a great fight, and we all had fun.
