In the game I am playing the Norwegians have just been invaded by the Germans.

Question: Is this always guaranteed to be successful? If an Allied player had the whole Home Fleet off Bergen would there be any modifier in play to cause the invasion to be unsuccessful?

Thank-you.

Yes. It is a scripted event. So the Allied presence of ships does not matter as far as I can tell.

The only way to stop it is to invade as the Allies before the script fires around the historical time frame.

Most who are playing his simulation would know that the German AI will be attacking Norway. Ergo no surprise and the real attack could easily have been stopped by the French and Royal Navy.

My point being...some events have to be scripted due to foreknowledge afforded by history.

Wow, great point and what a great design!!! Jeez, this game really appears to be the best thing to happen over here in a long time. I have to get this tonight.

So the only question is do I get the Hardcopy manual or not, hmmmm. Just kidding, hard copy all the way!

The good news is that the Allies get a Decision Event to invade Narvik, so if you want to go for Norway, the game engine offers you a perfect jump point for it.

I thought I had to move units into the ports and then transport them to Norway - I guess not - now invading France on May 6, 1940

You can always do that in case that you refuse to accept the DE. Could be a standard agreement for PBEM games NOT to accept the DE.

That's true, but only if the Allies sent an expedition to help the Finns, as when they return they are available for operations in Norway.

This is one reason why I recommend the Allies send an expedition to Finland if the USSR invades the country.

Additionally, it's success will move Finland in favour of the Allies, meaning that the USSR might not face conflict with it later on. So it's potentially win-win for the Allies.

So as the German player does one have to invade Denmark? Or is it scripted in conjunction with Norway?
