Historical Background:
Battle of the Bulge, morning of December 20, 1944 - Noville is already under attack, but the enemy seems to be groping, rather than making a concentrated attack. Fog and snow have hampered the action and the beleaguered Americans can only tell what is happening from up real close. Allied Command has told them to withdraw to Foy, but with the fog, the sound of gunfire seems to swirl around them from every direction. Can the column make it to Foy, not to even mention Bastogne?

The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. The rest is history.

Axis Player
Take 4 Command cards.
You move first.

Allied player
[United States]
Take 5 Command cards.

Conditions of Victory:
10 Medals.

The baseline road hex with an Exit marker is worth 1 Victory Medal for each Allied truck figure that manages to exit the board toward Bastogne.

The three sets of road hexes connecting Noville, Foy and Recogne are each worth a single Temporary Medal Objective for the Axis player. If the Axis player occupies one or more hexes in any of these sets at the start of his turn, he scores one Temporary Medal. Only one medal is gained for each set, regardless of the number of road hexes held there.

Special Rules:
?Heavy Fog? rules are in effect, reducing combat effectiveness. Dice symbols rolled that match a unit being targeted only score hits when battling the unit in Close Assault. All Grenades rolled still score hits as normal.

Place a badge on the two elite Allied Parachute infantry units (Troops 2 - Specialized Units) and on the lone German engineers unit (Troops 4 - Combat Engineers).

Tiger Tank rules are in effect (Troops 16 - Tiger Tanks).

Supply Truck rules are in effect (Troops 17 - Supply Trucks). Re-supply rules are not in effect, however; trucks in this scenario are transporting wounded men.

Special Weapon Assets rules (SWAs 1- Special Weapon Assets) are in effect for the units equipped with Anti-Tank weapons (SWAs 2 - Anti-Tank Gun) and Mortar (SWAs 3- Mortar).

Air Rules are not in effect. The Air Sortie cards are set aside and not used in this scenario.
