Has anyone ever come up with house rules regarding weather, e.g. rain? It had a huge effect on the historical campaign.

Hi Alan,

You are right about the importance of weather in the campaign, but I am afraid that time is so tight for the French player that any further complication would push the game balance too much against him.

Johnny hastily dug a foxhole, careful not to damage the sticky bomb detonator. The tank rumbled nearer. Fear of being crushed or spotted consumed him; yet seconds later, he deftly slapped the bomb onto a greasy gear and spun for cover, snap-firing...

HOWABOUT something simple like this...
[ determine weather at the start of each campaign turn, starting on the 2nd Day; by d10 roll e.g. 1-3 is Downpour; if previous turn was Dp then + 1 to next turn's roll ]

{ Downpour weather is assumed to be a short sudden burst of heavy rain- which has an immediate effect followed by light rain..}

DRY Group moves are now FOUR for the French and TWO for the Allies
DOWNPOUR : Group moves are TWO and ONE
