I am confused playing scenario 40 of this pack and it's a raid into Jordan by the Israeli's to fight PLO Terrorists but the description for scenario 40 is completely different and it involves Syrians instead of Jordanians. Am I missing something here?
But when Territories are acquired in regions where there are differences in language, customs, and laws then great good fortune and much hard work are required to hold them.

Hello Aces,

Hmm, I am not seeing that, with the version I have on my disk there's Jordanese and Pro-East PLO troops on the map.

This is the scenario description I am seeing:
[Kerama, Jordan]: [H2H] [HISB] [GD]: Elements of the Israeli1st "Golani" Infantry Brigade raid across the Jordan River toclear out Fedayeen guerilla bases, only to be met by units ofthe Jordanian 1st Infantry Division. [1.01]

Do you have the latest version of the Ode to AIW Scenario Pack? Wanna try redownloading it, and if you're still seeing this please send me the scenario files (org, map, scn), so I can check what's going on. Thanks!

The Description of the scenario in the game is correct but the designer document that comes with the pack has a different description for scenario 40. From the latest upload above.

Ah, that's right, good catch! I'll ask Alan about that.

Actually, no need to ask Alan about anything, seems I've put an old version of the Design Notes into the Manual folder. See my posts #5 and #6 above: Scenario #40 is a bonus scenario of a sort for Ode to AIW IV, while the numbering for Ode to AIW V scenarios is off by one, so #40 should be #41 and so on.

I will fix this at some stage!

Edit: Fixed and uploaded, please download the Ode to AIW scenario pack again from the Opening Post [:)]

Thanks for fixing this. I am in the middle of a PBEM but I will update it when we finish.

It is only the design notes that is updated. Just download the zip to another location, then cooy over the manual folder to your game folder if you want. No scenario changes whatsoever.

Hello Crossroads,

Thank you for organizing this for us and also the Panzer Leader and PanzerBlitz scenarios for the Campaign Series.

I started with AH's Blitzkrieg when I was 15 and moved up to Panzer Leader and Panzer Blitz along the way. Great Games!!

Glad to hear you are enjoying them! I sure am [:)]

Panzer Leader was my first boardgame, bought it in 1984, with my friend buying Arab-Israeli Wars a few months later, played a lot of them at the time. [&o]

Hi. Looking for a quick scenario with low unit density, I tried playing Scenario #20 last night as the Israelis. And I found that the Egyptians would never land their commando teams. The result was that I drove my Israeli units straight to their exit point under helo fire, unable to shoot back. I was able to exit with low casualties, but of course that resulted in a loss on points, and it wasn't fun, though it only took just a few minutes to finish. The first time I rushed my tanks forward. I thought perhaps I didn't give the Egyptians AI time to set up its ambush. So I tried it a couple more times, the last time holding the Israelis for four turns at their entrance hex, with the same result. So I'm wondering is that a glitch in the scenario? Is it not meant to be played with an Egyptian AI? Was the AI smart enough to know it could get a win by not unloading any troops? Did I do something wrong? I'm running the latest version of the game Thanks.

Hi Scott,

it's being recognised and addressed. What's the version though? 2.00 or the 2.01?

Oberst, I am aware it is being fixed. I was just trying to explain his problems.
