Looking to introduce an overlord scenario to our game group, a mixture of new and experienced M44 players. Which scenario would you recommend as the most compelling experience (it may not happen again!).
I have access to most of the expansions/battle maps (everything except Hedgerow Hell).
Thanks in advance
Bill

Market Garden is one of my favorites for experienced players, just because it is so different from the norm. Tigers would be my next favorite otherwise

Thanks all, I was hoping Market Garden would get the nod!

If you have newbies to Memoir'44 I wouldn't go for that one. There are others that may be more suitable for new players, like

Moyland Wood Overlord http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=1341 has only 3 types of terrain (wood, hills & towns) and with only 1 single Special Rule.

In my opinion, other type of OL scenarios may be sort of overwhelming for new players.

I agree. Even though Market Garden is my favorite scenario, if I had played it as my first scenario I would not have appreciated it as much... I think its best feature is you expect it to play like any other OL scenario and it doesnt.
