After that get in and get out.

Airborne operation.

The defender is constantly responding to new threats including running low on ammo. Very fun scenario.

You are outnumbered, the enemy controls the sky, and your tanks suck.

If you can get a 1:2 draw and still have units left alive consider yourself victorious.

This can be done with some ambushes and last-minute V hex grabs.

If you can get 1:1 or better yourself a tactical genius.

Very hard, very enjoyable and nearly impossible to win.

That sounds like one with "re-playability"

It definitely is.

I came within 150 points of an MV. Don't think I can take the stress of a replay. It looked like I was going to get my head handed to me for most of the game.

Playable from either side: Yes Easy as player 2 (But not worth playing since it is a turkey shoot)
Enjoyability: 4.5

This one is completely unbalanced (you are outnumbered 2:1) but it is really fun to see how far you can get.

I got a draw and destroyed nearly 100 German tanks but there were another 30 left and I was out of AP ammo.

Low enjoyability score due to too many turns of movement before combat starts. Even mortars start out of range.

OTOH does this not allow a variety of movement options for players making it suitable for PBEM for those who like to choose their own route to battle? ( and who have the time and patience to do so? )

RetLT June 5th, 2022 02:25 PM

Re: Scenario reviews
 
Not really.

The obvious routes to the objectives are pretty limited and player 2 has more than enough units that being sneaky is not needed. I even stopped moving the units in the north because I got tired of doing so.

Playing as the Germans I went with a simple frontal assault and had no problem achieving an easy victory. It just took a lot of playing time to get there.

I would cut the number of turns down and move the units closer to contact.
