I'd like to play Peleliu Landings OL. I printed out about 20 pages to make my own Battle Map, but haven't got back to the rematch, yet.

For those interested, I have an Overlord Sequence Summary as a Word file in my user pages, and as a forum post at boardgamegeek in OL. Until I hear otherwise, I believe it is correct. It may be handy to review where Marines and Japanese rules apply for this scenario.

I'm in.

Just one note:

Did the US go onto Daylight savings time? What time zone are we anchoring from because I don't think Europe and Lebanon and Europe switch until the end of the month.

Indeed US has changed to DST, while Europe only changes on March 30th.
I'll adapt the first post.

I did that too, but on A3 paper so I did not need 20 pages Smile

We played it after a tournament we had in Deventer a few weeks ago:

Comrades,
I just wanted to ask for a simple clarification of OL card rules. The section cards are very clear, but on the following cards:

Move Out
TFH
Firefight
DFHQ
Dig In
Armour Assault
Close Assault
Artillery Bombard

I can choose the appropriate number units across my two sections as a FG and am not limited to just one of the sections, right?

Another fun filled Sunday morning playing an OL Vassal, 4 v 3, I was CinC along with FG Sam and FG Quit2 versus CinC JFKoski and his FG's of Jeronimon, Eric And Denis.

Not much happening for Sam on the AXIS RIGHT card-wise except to be under attack by ERIC early on and cards dictated that I feed Quit2 and he did his job well by eliminating all but 1 of Denis' unit on the AXIS LEFT, think Sam said 8 in all.

From there Sam and I, I was C FG as well, combined for the other 5 kills with the help of tanks brought over from Sam, final was 13-8 AXIS.

About 4 hours fun and great job done by Q2 and tough stuff for Denis.

Until the next one.

Ouch, that was an "iron gut ringing" on that one. Let it be known that CiC Koski originally wanted me to pull two back into the sea on that last turn but I talked him out of it, trying for two kills and hoping Jero in the middle could take a big toll. In retrospect, if I had taken CiC Koski's input and had moved two or even one of the units out we might have gotten another turn or two. And maybe turned it?

Going with my plan, he told me to save the armor for a hit on the inf on the left if needed, but I misplayed that latter input. Pacific beach fever...

CiC Koski, Jero, and Eric did an amazing job racking up medals. I lost them for us a little faster... Rolling Eyes

I think Sam, Gonz, and Q2 were ganging up on me to demoralize me in case I make it to the Season 11 BGG next round... Laughing

Seriously, well done Axis team! It was fun!

Denis,
I have the feeling you're a bit too hard on yourself.
You had the hardest position on the Allied side, and your CinC was short on cards for you. At the same time, you direct opponent (me) received all he could imagine from his CinC, with I think two turns of 2 section cards at once.
Add to that some excellent dice and there was not much you could do, except some minor things like taking a unit for a swim instead of charging forward.

I concur with our esteemed enemy Quit2.

Maybe we could have divided the sections differently, but when the middle was offered to me, I did not say no, because that is guaranteed a lot of action on this map. Selfish? YES Cool

Also because Quit got a lot of cards, it took some time for Sam to move his tanks to the middle to Tony. So when that finally happened I had already breached the minefield. And destroying a whole armor unit in one throw finitely helped. Smile

Also on our left section Eric was able to do a lot more than I feel is usual on this map. And I feel that that's also in a part due to the clobbering you got on your section Denis.

But more importantly: I had fun and I also learned some things again. And it is always a pleasure to play with you guys. I am glad my girlfriend planned the Sunday so I could. (She must really love me Shocked )

Next month on Easter Sunday I will not join you, but wish you all the best and a good game!

I won't be able to make it this sunday.
If someone else can take over organisation, that is fine.
Else, I'll just report it to the next month.

If this Saturday is okay, I can run it.

How many people would we have for Saturday, same time?

The scenario would be Rzhev.

Saturday I could play a bit, albeit probably not the whole time.
Sam, can you start a new topic and see how many response you get?

Thought we had lost you there Quit2! But, yes, always an interest in such things!! World Cup can only hold our interest so long, though Jeronimon still has a rooting interest no doubt!!

Can still play some on Sunday or adjust schedule as needed or take a day off...one never knows!!

Go for it. Better late august than never.
And if someone else (me Rolling Eyes ) manages to organise another one earlier, that still doesn't have to be a problem.

I was lost. Spending time on other things. Yes, there are other things besides Memoir Shocked

I'm back now, but I will be more paced about Memoir: playing occasionally, leaving time for other things.
