3 New Overlords Sat, 18 June 2016 02:21
I know I haven't posted any new scenarios for a while but that doesn't mean I haven't been writing them.

'Tetsu no Ame' is a Pacific Theater scenario where the Japanese get reinforcements as units are eliminated. In the real battle the Allies thought there were only 65,00 troops but in reality there were 130,000 on the island. They frustratingly crop up to thwart the Allied attacks.

Operation Crusader is a desert Overlord where both sides must make strategic decisions when to attack and defend.

Paradrop at Kanev gave me the opportunity to use a more strategic version of the Paradrop rule. I'm not a big fan of the original rule though I see the attempt for a haphazard drop. In my scenario, the Russian commander gets to place his paratroopers but does so before drawing cards. Not quite as haphazard as the original rule but still some trepidation as to what may happen.

Anyway, I hope you try them.

Eric

Thanks Eric!
Your scenario are always a pleasure to play Cool

We're having a memoir event next Saturday evening, and are planning to play a pacific overlord.
Maybe we'll try yours Smile (depends on the players who are coming)

one question: Are that actual balkas or are they used as ravines ?

Antoi,

Play as wadis or gullies. Enter through open end only.

By the way, if you play as Japanese don't be too aggressive as you would normally be with them. Remember, you get reinforcements anywhere on the baseline. Let the Americans come to you a little.

Thanks Eric,

I just noticed Balkas and Wadis/guillies have similar tiles.... Rolling Eyes
