Does anyone have this game?  If so, any chance you could scan a copy of the Player Aid Card with that has the sequence of play on it (both sides) and send it to me as a PDF? I've ruined mine - and unfortunately in the game, that particular player aid card is the only one of it's kind (it has two of the other PAC).

The GMT website has the rule book but not the PACs - presumably to prevent fraudulent use of the game.

Thanks

Maybe if you contact GMT and explain the circumstances, they may help?

Yeah...possibly.  I also thought about asking in BGG...I thought I'd try here first though...assuming one of these geeks would have the game and might help.  ;D

I've seen requests like that for other games on BGG and people do seem to quite often jump in and help, so definitely worth a try.

Turn 3
Cherbourg is captured...3 weeks in.

The British are making slow progress - though the 12SS KG has got itself stuck in Caen (red). There's a chance they could come back into supply by moving some units. That may be my fault - I think I tried to hold onto Caen longer than I had to - after turn one, there's no advantage to preventing the Allies from having it. I was looking for the defensive bonuses it provides...city, over a river etc...but like I said - I stayed too long.

Honestly I don't know whether I'm playing well as the Allies and poor as the Germans or vice versa. I keep moving the Germans out of combat and forming a new line...which means the Allies are continually trying to force combat. They have the activations to do it normally - but it does depend on the chit pull order - and it hasn't all been going the Allies way.
