It was an enjoyable game in that it went down to turn 9. I would need to nail down a few of the details to play it again. I think it would make a decent con game because it would introduce people to the rules fairly well, without armor and artillery. Though, I would want to have armor, at least, in a game, because we all love playing with tanks.
Here's some info on the game. (See my question below on the ethics of releasing this information.)
North of Caen scenario table measurements
Germans CO 9, (2) HQ8, 6 Heer Squads, 2 MG42s
British Regulars CO 9, HQ 8, HQ 7, 9 Regular squads, 3 mortars rated at 2/80, (3) 12cm squares as pregame arty strikes rated with 4 dice against each unit under the templates.

To take a building, the British need one unsuppressed squad or HQ in the building...I need to think through this part because standard BKC rules states that for an objective to be taken 3 unsuppressed squads and an HQ need to be in the area. Which would mean leaving people in the buildings. Which, in this small of a scenario, I don't think you can afford to have a unit in there. I want to say the last one with troops in the building. They can even be suppressed. In which case I would take this to the last turn because the Germans could've possibly taken on the of the buildings back because the British squad had 5 hits on it.
Next time I believe the Germans should set more foxholes up front, this is how the left flank stayed so resilent. Possibly, on the right flank, just post up in the buildings and force them to cover the open ground. The British, I wonder if grouping them all together might be a better strategy.
Now to the ethics question. So this scenario comes out of the IABSM rulebook. In fact, there are many scenarios I want to use out of other books and convert to BKC...or other games I'm playing. Now, I don't have a problem with using them myself because I paid for them.
However, should I post the details like troop lists and my map, and the objectives online for all to use? I'm giving credit to it and making slight modifications, but I'm not sure the scenario creators would be too keen. I'm pro, paying the creators for their work so I want to do right by them. I like posting AARs and that means including some of the basics...but maybe I don't include that info and tell people to buy the books...maybe I answered my own question.
Please give me your thoughts on this.
