Their Finest Hour record? Sat, 04 December 2010 14:41
I played a 20 turn Saverne Gap scenario as the Allies which I lost 4 (17 figs) to 5 ( 34 figs).

My German opponent played four TFHs - yes four(and no Allied COUNTERATTACK in sight)!!! Not only that, of the TFH 16 rolls, he got 8 Inf rolls, 2 tank rolls and two star rolls - a total of 13 orders Shocked

The topper is on the turn before he played his 4th TFH, I had a chance to win. I targeted a 1 fig infantry with 2 shots - whiff.

In my nearly 800 games I cannot recall that ever happening to me.

In our rematch of the same scenario, I as the Germans drew TFH -- thinking turnabout is fair play my 4 rolls got to order a single panzer Sad

Today i played overlord and my opponent got 3 orders out of 12 possible , on the counterattack i got 9 orders and continued on to win Dieppe as allies.
TFH can be heaven or hell.

I've had equally useless rolls while playing real games.... Rolling Eyes But I've played a lot more Online games in a much shorter period of time so I remember the bad TFH rolls from the online game more easily.

I do remember rolling 3 Flags, 2 Grenades and 1 Tank in one battle. I would have been able to order a tank unit...except that my wife had just eliminated my last Armor unit the turn before! Mad Laughing She loved that!! Smile

I rolled 5 INF and 1 ARM on TFH during Arnheim versus Brummbar online, but those 6 attacks gave me about 2% hits Crying or Very Sad

I saw my opponent play a TFH, he get 6 Command Cards but rolled 7 dice(online, bug)!! 3 stars, 2 infantries, 1 flag and grenede. Thanks to the good luck, when he smashed out my tank with rolling 3 grenedes, other rolls all get missed.

I hope you Reported that bug! Very Happy I had the same thing happen to me, actually and I reported it...but DoW needs to know that this wasn't an isolated event and they need to kno which battles are affected by this bug. Cool

I had five cards once and rolled FIVE FLAGS. I think they should have been surrender flags.

Sorry if this was answered elsewhere, but after a one hour useless search on BGG and on the M44 forums, I realized the I've better things to do with my time and decided to post the question here. So: if Their Finest Hour orders nothing (no unit symbols, no stars, only grenades and flags rolled), is the turn effectively lost?

Your wife plays Memoir?! I am jealous! I played one game with my wife before we got married, and she won't play any of "those war games" with me anymore!

Shocked Shocked

By the way, in yesterday's game of Utah Beach D-Day Landings, I played as Axis and got TFH twice, and I had five command cards and rolled and only got one infantry and one armor activation out of it! (see D-Day Landings:Impressions for pics & summary)

Mad
