Very nice landing results. Lets hope that luck holds over to the capturing of bridges.
Bridges seem to blow very easily in this game. Turn 1 you get a modifier to help - but after that, the Germans blow them like me and money in a model store.

I think I probably saw this on BGG and didn't realise it was a comparison and automatically assumed it was the Normandy '44 map because it was a pic on that games page



I should pay more attention  :)

Well - as much as I would very much like it, I do also have Ardennes '44. I do like having games that use the same system.

I found errata in the box that states that 4 of the 5 bridges across the canal where 30 Corps start are blown - so here they are. One crossing for a Corps!

Not an exact quote certainly but essentially what he said. And if it's good enough for Michael Caine, who am I to question. Of course, some....people....  ::)
