Not doing so well in my first mission...5 of my men are dead and 1 more is incapacitated...only 8 VPs so far but all Germans so far have been incapacitated...

So, basically I am in operations and "scouting" out the map with my 2 remaining soldiers (1 wounded) trying to activate some more Germans so I can get those last 5 VPs to win (acutally only need 2 more and I can try to drag a US soldier I found from the previous unit to safety for 3 more VPs)...

Can't find them yet...is there a point when all Germans who could be activated already have been?

thx
Bill

Well, that is the beauty of Ambush, you never know if all the Germans are on the board or not. But with such high losses you may want to put this down to a learning game and try again.

I agree. It's gonna be rough with that many losses.

You can know if all the possible enemies have been activated, though it's a very meta-game thing. If you've used all the letters available for Germans in one scenario, they're used up.

However, I'm not sure that each scenario has all of the units somewhere on the board. I've only hit this limit once in all of the scenarios in the base game.
