Easter campaign Sun, 04 April 2010 11:27
The Easter break has given me the chance to play the Normandy campaign solo. So far I have played 8 scenarios, completing Flanking Caen and The Breakout. The Allies had the better of the first campaign (23:13) but the Germans scored success in the second (20:11) giving a current overall score of 34:33 to the Allies!

Terrific fun! Very Happy

How did the Allies proceed to Taking Caen, if the campaign after "Flanking Caen" was "The Breakout"?

I thought that only applied if you are playing the Grand Campaign? Embarassed

If you aren't playing the Grand Campaign (and you're just keeping track of total medals for the fun of it) then it doesn't matter what order you play the Campaigns in. It sounds like you're having fun, and that's what matters! Cool

Yes, that's how I'm playing it - you get more battles in that way! Laughing

Actually jumping from Caen to the attempted breakout and then returning back to the struggle for Caen seems to make historical chronological sense.

Sounds like fun. How do you have so much time to play right now, are you on vacation? You said something about Easter Break...we don't get any extra time off for Easter here.

If you're enjoying this Campaign solo, imagine how much more fun it is against another player! I think the campaign system is so much fun! Very Happy

Agreed, it is certainly much more fun! Very Happy (I must also mention, that when first playing the Grand Campaign, I played all the campaigns... Razz - so who's talking xD).

Have a nice holiday! Very Happy

We get Friday and Monday off here in the UK so a long weekend - but I've got next week off too as the schools are on holiday. Shame the Breakthrough maps won't arrive until after the holiday!

I have played the campaigns with others but I couldn't resist 11 scenarios in 3 days. Memoir-a-thon! Laughing

i know that feeling - my wife's a teacher, so two-week break, which means that just about the time that the breakthrough kit arrives, she'll be back at work, and too busy to play again Sad

Thanks to Nemesszili and a re-read I now understand the Grand Campaign scoring system and have completed the Normandy set! The original scores of the first two campaigns stood and then both sides convincingly won a scenario leaving the score before the final scenario at 7:7. With the score at 5:5 in Closing the Gap, the Allies had a chance to win by playing Barrage on a single tank model - and then rolled 4 x Infantry!! The result was decided a couple of moves later when the Allies did finally gain the winning medal.

A very close Grand campaign and about as much fun as you can have on your own!! Very Happy

Hey I think you may be on to something. A marathon sequence of memoir. Sounds like a group effort needing a bit of organization. Got me thinking.

I played The battle for Normandy campaign just a week before Easter and as the Allies I steamrolled the Germans. Won 8 of 9 scenarios. Some through good cards and dice and some through good tactic.
We did the 9 scenarios over two evenings. The last evening included 6 scenarios. Most I have ever played in one session. Might be called a Memoir-a thon
