Is there any chance they might implement Hidden initial placement or concealment with the computer game?
Is there a Scenario that allows a player to place his own units...or reinforcements entering into play by a certain turn.

They've got a lot of existing scenarios and rules that haven't been implemented yet. I have no inside information (and I don't know what they've done in their other online games), but I'd imagine they would implement more of those before they add something completely new.

Camouflage does exist in a number of the boardgame scenarios, but those units simply can't be attacked from a distance, even though their locations are known by the opposing player.

Hi waltero,

If you look at my new scenario booklet (SFTF BOOKLET thread will get you to it), I have a scenario where you get to place 12 paratrooper units before the first turn. Check it out.


I'm also working on scenarios for my 2nd booklet that will incorporate reinforcements from off the board at a certain turn in the game, and one with hidden units(you stole my thunder). What I don't want to do though is make it too complicated and take away from the simplicity of Mr. Borg's game. Both ideas would necessarily involve keeping track of turns and a written record of hidden unit placements. Obviously, a computer version of these ideas would be easier to use.

I'm afraid not. Days of Wonder has a pretty clear policy that they only implement the Official Rules in their computer versions (which is one of the reasons they do the computer development in-house). WIth Memoir '44 they allow people to make their own maps, but that's about as close as you'll see to 'custom rules' in the computer versions.

As people have said, fans have created scenarios with special rules like this and I know that the Campaign Book has a few scenarios with reinforcements that are triggered or activated later in the battle. But you would have to buy the Campaign Book Volume 2 to have access to those official scenarios and play those with the table top version.

I have considered playing double blind, but you need a ref for that
