Coup De Main(CB#2) question Thu, 19 January 2012 23:25
Hi all.

Played a very cool game of Memoir tonight.

Started the British branch of the Break Through Normandy campaign with Coup De Main.

In this scenario the Nritish starts with 1 unit on the board, drops 9 units and can enter 3 more when full daylight is reached, for a total of 13 units, if we don't include possible reserves.

Victory conditions are 10 medals, and this raises some questions for me.

Reserve roll for the British has the possiblity of giving them 2 units, but nothing is guaranteed in Memoir.

Let's assume reserve roll brings on 1 unit, like it did for me tonight.

When I dropped my figures ONLY 5 of those landed safely.(2 tried to crowd the same hex, already occupied by an Axis unit and 2 left the board all together.)

So now I have 7 units on the board, with 3 that CAN enter when full daylight is reached for a total of 10 units. The axis now needs to elliminate all my units to win.

And here comes my questions.

1. What happens if reserve roll, paradrop and those 3 late arrivals doesn't add up to 10?

2. What happens if I don't bring on those late arrivals, and thereby keeping the British unit total at under 10?


I seriously considered this last option as having only 9 units would make it impossible for the Axis to win. THen I could have cycled the deck until I got Barrage or Air Power cards and picked of Axis units, providing they didn't get Medics & Mechanics. But I figured that was bad sportmansship and brought on all 3 latecomers.

I won the scenario 10-5, but my 5 units had a combined total of 9 figures left! (4,2,1,1,1)

This same problem can arrise in all the paradrop scenarios in the Break Through Normandy campaign and I think it needs an answer.

I think the victory condition for the Axis should be
10 medals or if there are no Allied units left on the board.
That additon to the victory condition would fix this issue.
