Just looking for a game or three on some small or medium scenarios, I am no pro but I am not terrible either! Just an average player maybe a bit of a newer average player :P

I am happy to give anything a try really just looking for some regular opponents to start off small with!

Hi Synau,

I'm interested in a game. I'm kind of an older average player I think :) Certainly not in the top tier by a long stretch, but I've been playing for a fair while, so have long run out of excuses!

Are you interested in a game of Fall Grau by any chance?

In case Synau is put off by the apparent size (having asked for small to medium), I'll jump in here and point out that Fall Grau starts out fairly simple, with each side only using a few dozen pieces. It gets big later on.

Hey mate Fall Grau sounds good to me! I'll send you a PM and we can set it up!

golden delicious: - at first I was thinking that haha! But I did a bit of reading and seen a couple of AAR's and it seems exactly as you described it to be!

I mean I really don't want to put anyone off of playing Fall Grau but I think Small applies much more to the Axis side then the Allied side. A pretty sizable Allied army starts on the map - it is just in the wrong places for the most part. Axis turns start pretty small and then get a bit longer as time goes on but Allied turns are actually fairly large from turn 1. In my experience, and depending on the circumstance they can actually get shorter later if most of the Allied units are actually in the line digging in and all you get to move is a handful of reinforcements.

So I absolutely hope you play and enjoy it but you should at least understand that it is not actually small - though it is by no means a monster scenario either and there is an element of a long build up allowing players to get used to it.

Remember absolutely no setting your planes on naval interdiction in the scenario ever. The last thing you want to do is have to play the turns over.
