Yes it is difficult!
If it makes it any better it is meant to be..
War Fighter WWII - Europe - card W-27
Objective - Observation Post
Keep Clear 3.
Always draw for Rein.
is a WWII version of:
War Fighter Special Forces - Middle East - card 7-60
Objective - Reinforce Outpost
Once Activated, have no Hostiles in this card at the end of each Soldier Turn for the next 3 Soldier Turns.
The approach to mission success is basically the same.
Hit it hard, then secure it!
Lacking Claymores and M2's you will want to use
Booby Traps and Satchel Charges and soldiers with deployed LMGs and/or Rocket Launchers and/or Grenades and/or Flame Thowers on Overwatch.
As soon as hostiles reinforce - you hit them hard, then mop them up in the next players turn or you lose.
There is one simple and easy "cheat" you "Stay Low" the Objective.
Stay Low - Action card
Permanently treat your
Location as having a “None”
In a play test - I had established are very strong defensive position in the Observation Post using all of the above except a flame thrower, no other location could reinforce and I'd eliminated all Hostiles on the board and the last soldiers action on the 1st turn was to draw cards - one of the card drawn was "Stay Low" - game over! Mission Success!
All safe and home by Christmas!
Except for the purpose of the play test I ignored that card and spent the next two player turns wiping out anything that reinforced.
After the play test - I confirmed with DVG that "Stay Low" could be used this way - and it stayed in the rules.
(It is like using one or more "Break Contact" Action Cards in an escape mission - it makes the mission easier)
