Bonus 12's

Greetings, Larry introduced 12-sided dice in Battle of the Bulge and I enjoy the options they offer over 6-sided dice. Rolling the number 12 on a D12 for example, can be used as a bonus and generate two dice rolls. Here's a simple illustration: Suppose two German infantry and a tank are attacking tw...

Re: Have a Look at WAR ROOM

Larry, I felt compelled to write after viewing some of the negative comments about your prototype on another website. I can't believe, after the years of pleasure you've given this community, that some people are prejudging your new game and think they already know what's coming. I for one have had ...

Mixing Dice

Greetings, Here's a House Rule that might be used under certain circumstances. It's the idea of mixing D6 and D12 during a battle. The best illustration can probably be seen in Larry's D-Day. For those familiar with the battle of D-Day, the GI landing on Omaha Beach was clearly more lethal than the ...

Re: Born warrior

I always wanted to apply for a job at a local newspaper as a "poof reader" (for those that missed my lousy attempt at humor, a proof reader edits articles written by others and makes corrections). I proof read my dedication submission about three times and still missed the word Metals which clearly ...

Born warrior

This dedication is about an immigrant: a Canadian to be specific. I first met this immigrant in the Foreword to Ernst Junger's book Storm of Steel recommended by Chacmool in his letter to Larry. Storm of Steel is an excellent memoir worthy of its own review. Junger gives a perspective of daily life ...

Re: Casualties

Greetings, Here is a further refinement of "Who is Hit" from my first post. If you recall (or re-read) because D-Day allows only a maximum of eight units per zone per side we can figure out what units are hit. Once you've determined what type of unit was hit, you can break it down further to see who...

Re: Ammunition

Greetings, Here is a possible scenario using Supply Tokens to fuel individual battles. AA Europe (1999) is the game of choice and although I assume most of you don't play or maybe don't even own it, perhaps other games in the AA series can be adapted to what follows. Here is some beginning informati...

Re: Ammunition

Imperious Leader, To begin, we'll need to know the source of all the major powers "oil centers": their accessibility and vulnerabilities. Germany's use of synthetic fuel must be taken into account, as well as Hitler's determination to protect Ploesti at all costs. However, if "oil centers" are to be...
