Vyazma or Bust Campaign: In Search of a Compromise
Following my request of help after theVyazma or Bust last game draw, the majority of the opinions are inclined to give the victory to the Soviet side. However, the TFL Big Man himself (Richard Clarke) suggested in the Yahoo Group the possibility of a refight assuming as a strating point the maxium penetration line of the Germans in the previous.
I find this soultion to be a fair one, at least fairer than proclaiming the Russians straight winners when th truth is that the main objective was celarly disputed. A second chance for both sides to show their war(gaming) capabilities. I'm planning to work this scenario as the second day in the battle, following a ceasefire after dusk. Now I'm working on the new OOBs to take into consideration the casualties of the previous game and also the possibility of reinforcements sent through the night by the German and Russian HQs respectively.
And I have another surprise in hand for the players, inspired by an article published in recent TFL Special... but this is a secret that I will unveil after the next game, scheduled for Sunday December 9th (ha, ha, ha!!).
