Enjoyability: 1

Player 1 spends a lot of time moving units that will never get close enough to fight. Needs to be 30 turns longer than it already is. Skip this one.

DRG EDIT: Based on this review I have increased the number of turns to 77.

Scenario #113 Langemarck at Narva Day 1
Difficulty: Hard/Very hard
Size: Small
Time: Short
Playable from either side: No, defender leaves cover to take white v-hexes. These start under the defender's control in the next scenario.
Enjoyability: 3

DRG EDIT: The "defender leaves cover to take white v-hexes" has been resolved by making them Nation 1's flags to start. There is no reason I can think of for making them neutral at start but there are a couple of odd things about this one and 114 mainly that they appear to be identical aside from the neutral V hexes in 113 so I need to dig back to an old copy of the game to check this

Scenario #114 Langemarck at Narva Day 2
Difficulty: Hard/Very hard
Size: Small

Playable from either side: yes, easy as player 2.
Enjoyability: 3

DRG EDIT: I have made a note to check this over thoroughly in the fall when we start looking at the game again. I'm not sure if the campaign was built from the scenarios or the other way around but in the campaign, for the second battle the German side gets reinforcements that are not included in 114, and, as far as I can tell right now this scenario (114) appears to be identical to 113 aside from the V hex markers

Scenario #123 Graebner's Charge

Enjoyability: 2

Consider this a Kobayashi Maru scenario. You can't win but see how well you can lose.

DRG Comment

I had read someplace that Graebner had a past history of this kind of bold action that had worked.......things like that work until they don't. The fact that he had just been awarded the KC less than a month before may have been a contributing factor

I DO like the Kobayashi Maru reference:up::up:

according to this.....https://military.wikia.org/wiki/Vikt...d_Gr%C3%A4bner

the battle lasted 2 hours

Quote:

The first five German armored cars of the column managed to make it across the bridge unscathed due to the fact that they took the defenders by surprise. The British had laid mines on the bridge's approaches and these were expertly avoided by the speeding German drivers. In the resultant two-hour battle, the battalion was beaten back with heavy losses in which 12 out of the 22 vehicles were destroyed or knocked out and over 70 men killed, including Gräbner who was killed in action during the assault.
Methinks there is a larger Kobayashi Maru test in this.......even though the only way to beat Kobayashi Maru is to cheat <g>
