I'm about to play a game of Patton's Vanguard with someone who's intelligent but has never played a wargame before. I'm looking for suggestions for rules adjustments which would give him a fighting chance to win on his first play of the game.

Have him play the Americans in scenario one. Disregard German auto victory. Be sure to play with rule that allows Americans to regroup before or after move and combat. Big edge if used right. Make Abrams immune to death.

I think all that should give some edge but not an overwhelming one.

With those suggested options the Americans should have a real fighting chance even in the hands of a new gamer.
