I was looking forward to play this scenario with the Tigers, but man, was that a bore!
5-0 (my loss) and 5-1 (my win) in the Germans favour and the Allied didn't stand a chance!
Both games was over in less than 6 turns or 20 minutes!

Looking at my logs for my two plays, 5-2 win as Axis, 3-4 win (since Allies need 3, Axis 5) as Allies. But agree on the speed of play.

Okay, have to be fair too and say I might be a bit dissapointed because I was looking forward to play Market garden but I couldn't find the damn board. It was NOT in my Memoir '44 bag!!!! soblue

But I still think the Villers-Bocage was over too quick!

I am sure Wittmann said the same thing... But boy was it fun shooting up the Shermans and Crusaders.

The Germans have a very high rate of success on this one. I have won it as the Britts maybe 25%-30% of the time. Hitting the Tigers is not the problem, rolling the damn grenade to kill them is.

My 7 year old daughter likes the look of the game. It is basically me solo playing with her moving her side. Will give her the Germans on this scenario. Make her day beating dad.

I only managed to hit a Tiger once and then rolled a useless flag!

Well when one knows the situation is hopeless it is often best to go on the offensive and try to get more dice on the targets.

The BCF only need a few flags to win the scenario so hopefully their hand is loaded with Left and Center section cards as well as Direct from HQ.

Also, don't forget all terrain is impassible (except the roads). Once the Tigers come out of the woods they cannot go back in.

To make the victory for the Germans less easy, I have amended the rule on the impossibility to enter the forest/city hexes. This rule is good for armor but not for the infantry (this seems to me more realistic). In this way the infantry become less vulnerable.
