Given the variety of OCS games and scenarios :

How many and which OCS scenarios are playable in about a day ?

This is the type of schedule I have in mind :

Start playing around 14h00.

Eating from 17h30 to 18h30

And playing again from 18h30 till 23h00 or 24h00 ?

Billyboy is the subject matter expert on all things OCS, surely he will have a recommendation.

Reluctant Enemies From MMP is the one I'm pre-ordering to get me through the learning curve and enjoy the shorter scenarios it is a small game meant to serve as an accessible introduction to the Operational Combat Series (“OCS”). It is one map, with 60 or so combat units (both players) in action at any given time. This allows for a pace of play not possible with the previously published OCS monster games. Regardless of the reduction in scale it remains an OCS game with all features relevant to the system.

However once I've tamed this small fry I've also reserved my pre-order of OCS Korea: The Forgotten War 4-09rwhich looks amazing.

The black cats scenario in Burma for sure. Maybe Operation Compass from DAK2? Havent played it but looks doable.

Does your schedule include setup time?

It really depends on which games you have available. Most of them (if not all) have a (very) short learning scenario, but some then go straight to a partial or full campaign, which will take too long.
