Here's a scenario which has been in private circulation for a while (about 20 years). Although in theory there is more to do on it I think by the time it would all be done another 20 years will have passed, so here it is: enjoy.
Fictional Axis invasion of North America, 1943
Map Scale: 25km/hex
Original Scenario by Jeremy Mac Donald. V2 and 25km/hex design by Ben Turner
This scenario is not a true hypothetical in that it does not attempt to deal with the immense logistical problem of mounting an invasion across the Atlantic onto a hostile shore. Instead the scenario is more along the lines of those most fanciful what-ifs: would a Roman legion wipe the floor with the contemporary Chinese armies- or vice versa? Here, the immense military power of the Axis is pitted against the equally staggering industrial resources of North America.
Fall Grau is one of the most replayable I’ve encountered. Because almost the entire Axis OOB begins off-map, and the Axis player has a more or less free choice of where to deploy each unit, no two matches will follow the same pattern. Add to this the strategic options presented by the different sealift TOs and the question of when and where to bring in the Japanese and there is a very high degree of unpredictability.
On top of all that, the unit density on this very large map is extremely low. Even with the lower-than-usual unit size for the scale, it will be impractical for the player to build a continuous front across the map. Instead, it will be prudent to concentrate strong forces at key points, whilst leaving other areas only lightly screened. However, due to the excellent road network in the United States, there are few areas of the map that can be ruled out as a possible area for enemy attacks.
The .zip contains the scenario file, a full manual and a quick start guide which is just one page for the impatient among you. The zip will unpack directly in the chosen folder so you should extract it in the folder which contains your scenarios.
Please note that this scenario is NOT for PO play.
