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