Welp... I’ve gone and done it. Started up the full monty. It took me about 4 hours to remove the chits and sort them into trays.
It took a another 12 hours to sort them again into their starting positions.  :o I must be nuts.
Here’s the starting map. Germans on map at start.

Here’s the German reinforcement OoA. Made my own because the ones in the game are ridiculously small.(that was part of the setup time)

Here is the Allied OoA charts, again I made some because of the space needed for all the units.

And so we start. First off is the airborne landings.
The British did very well In that only a couple of companies lost a step on landing.

The Americans however... well they get a bit screwed by the rules right at the start. To simulate the rough way the Americans landed in history, each unit is first subjected to a dispersal roll. 1D6 - 1= all good, 2-4 = step loss before rolling for landing effects, 6 = step loss and delayed appearance until turn 4. This last one represents the unit being so scattered that it takes them a day to find each other and then they can appear on the map near their LZ or any unit from their division already on the map.

So here is the units that made it to the map on the jump.

you know what's crazy is that every DDay game out there assumes the US airborne are going to be scattered and disorganized on the ground, but there are almost no variants that ask "hey, what if they all landed where they were supposed to?"

Random acts of genius and other inspirations of applied violence.

Well, considering they were all trying to land in predominantly bocage and flooded countryside it’s not surprising they became so scattered. The terrain where the British landed is mostly open with a few stands of trees.... and a canal or 2 to fall in.

Looking forward to following this one.


It is a sharp looking game.  :( Now that you have it all squared away I was expecting a more well rounded look. But I guess you clipped that vital part of the setup  >:D

I'm upset (and a little jealous) that I didn't come up with this myself.  :applause:

Okay, that's just mean (on a couple levels).  :nerd:
