Battle For the Passes - Medals? Wed, 09 December 2009 20:49
I just received the New VERCORS CAMPAIGN compliments of DOW. Thanks guys!

I just had one question.
The online listing says that 6 medals are required for victory in the "Battle for the Passes" scenario:

However, the text in the published Vercors Campaign guide says 5 medals.

Which is it ??????

Shocked

I can not give you an answer to the question, but I can say that I played the Campaign yesterday and it was great. The strategies you use are affected in a very positive way by the exclusion of Air Power and Barrage. If you want to take out a lone infantry figure in hiding, you have to hunt him with your units and can't relay on a Barrage or Air Power to do the job.

We had some very tense battles and 1 scenario that was a total washout thanks to very good defensive rolls and cards by the French.(Second scenario)

We didn't play Battle for the Passes because the French had taken an unassailable lead in the campaign after four scenarios, but even if the French won big the Campaign was very fun to play. There is something about the French resistance and infantry battles that just works very well here.

Kudos to jdrommel for this campaign. It is a must play in my opinion!

Has this question ever been clarified, ideally by Jacques himself?

Hi Stevens,

Sorry for the delay of my answer.
The answer is 6 medals for this battle, including the medal token in the "Grande Cabane" hexagon for the Axis player.

There is a misprint in the paper, I am really sorry of that.
Nobody has saw this misprint before Sad
I will say it to DoW and place a post in the forums.
Thanks for your remarks.
Regards,
Jdrommel
.

Note that the AXIS player cannot win this scenario unless he captures "Grande Cabane".
