Vercors mini-campaign Sun, 28 February 2010 10:15
Played the Vercors mini-campaign over the weekend with my son - fantastic fun! Despite him losing the first scenario 1:5 he pulled it back so that we went into the final scenario at 19:20 and he eventually won the campaign 25:24.

Excellent work by JDrommel. Very Happy

I can only echo your statement about the Vercors Campaign. It is great fun. I have played it twice.
Last time we went into the last scenario tied at 20-20. I lost the last scenario as the germans because I couldn't take the town, but elliminated 9 french units to take the campaign 29-27.

Just as a reminder there is a misprint in the last scenario.
The victory condition is supposed to be 6 medals and not 5 as printed in the scenario rules.

Saw your son only got 6 points in the last scenario, so either you played it to 5 medals or forgot the extra point for the scenario win. Did he play the french or the Germans?

How did you like the scenarios without Air Power and Barrage? I found them to be very enjoyable and there is really something when you are truely out of reach of your opponent.

I didn't realise this misprint for the final scenario. My son won the last scenario 5:4 but gained the 1 extra bonus point for winning the scenario. The results were: 1:5; 6:4; 2:5; 6:4; 5:4, so my son gained 5 bonus points and me 2 (the German's didn't gain any scenario objectives).

Not using the Air Rules, Air Power or Barrage cards does give the campaign its own flavour, though the Germans can use Air Power (scenarios 3, 4 & 5) and Barrage in scenarios 4 & 5.

I'm looking forward to more mini-campaigns from JDrommel.

Just wondering if you could give a reference for where this misprint was noted by either DOW or Jdrommel.

The printed version of "Battle for the Passes" says 5, but the online version (correctly) says 6, as confirmed by the author in this thread:

This shows you how tired and brain dead I am. I was the original person to get the answer and I didn't even remember it. OUCH!

I need a day off!

Don't worry about it. When you get up to as many posts as you have, it's easy to forget about one. ;->
