New Overlord scenario at Brummbar44.com Sat, 12 May 2018 17:12
Hi Volks,

I know, it's been awhile. Getting back into things a bit and thought some might be interested to see the Overlord scenario I've recently posted to my site - The Encirclement of Nancy.

Hope you enjoy, and Happy Gaming!

Welcome back, my friend. It's wonderful to see you, and certainly has been way too long.

(To you newer folks, in the early days of Memoir, Brummbar was a prominent player -- take a look at the Military Archives for the early scenarios -- and created a campaign for CB1, among other things.)

Good to see some old friends indeed! Where did the time go?!

Might even have to get an online game or two in!

I appreciate that the scenario features mostly base game content - I'll try to get a group together and test it. I have questions about the bridges:

Pontoon bridges cannot be built in the Center. How about on the Center/Flank border? This is really important on the Allied Center-Right.

Who builds bridges in Overlord, Commander-in-Chief or Field General?

Can the CiC give two section cards for FG, when one is used for build action?

What is the order of play when a bridge is built? If the bridge comes to play before units move, can they move onto it on the same turn it is built?

Center FG can't, but a flank FG can.

The FG.

Quote:

If an FG receives two section cards, they must be used in different sections. However, if the bridge is close enough to another section, units from a neighboring section may move over the bridge.

Quote:

Terrain-33: "Play an Attack command card but order no units; instead, place a pontoon bridge on a river hex in the same section as Attack card." So, it happens in the Order phase, so if a unit from another section is close enough, it can go over the bridge in the Movement phase.

Yes, thank you! The fact that a bridge can suddenly appear and be crossed is different from regular scenarios, but I'm not saying it's better or worse.

Some speculation about the objective: I think it is very well protected, not least by the two artillery units on the other side of the river. The Allies probably don't want to advance towards it. Naturally, Behind Enemy Lines or a sneaky Infantry Assault might be useful if taking the objective leads to victory.
