cathar1244 -> Revived scenario: House of Cards (3/20/2021 2:21:58 PM)

Here is golden oldie for the veterans -- from way back, in the previous millenium, when TOAW was version 1.

House of Cards, by Thomas Kolley, initial release in 1998.

HoC is a division level scenario covering the Eastern Front from January through March 1945 -- the Soviet drive from the Vistula to the Oder.

I have made as few changes as possible while trying to align the scenario with TOAW IV. Only playtesting reports will determine if I have been successful. If players spot critical issues, please report them in this thread.

As I have yet been unable to contact Thomas, I have kept changes to the needed minimum.

Hope it is still fun to play; it was 23 years ago when I first came across it. HoC and another scenario I was working on the time were "joined" with the scenario Goetterdaemmerung 1945 the result. Hard to believe two DECADES have slipped by since then.

Note the scenario is meant to be played with old supply rules in effect. Although I changed this in the global options, it seems to drop out and revert to new supply rules in effect.

Cheers

Lots of the guys that made the old scenarios have either dropped off the gaming grid or dropped off the planet. Not uncommon for a 22+ year old game. [:(]
