Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
One of the responsibilities of the Airborne troops was the seizure of several key bridges following the D-Day drop. One of these bridges was at Chef-du-Pont. Gavin organized a pickup force to take care of this bridge himself. With elements of the 507th split into two groups, he marched on Chef-du-Pont by closely parallel but different routes.

2019-11-06(D) Vilis Pavulans vs Matt Velazquez German winReally close scenario! For a long time it looked like a sure victory for the germans since the americans had trouble advancing towards the exit hex. In the last turns things started to turn ugly and the yanks were gathering near the exit. They ran through machinegun fire and residuals which cut them down but early on one lousy squad got pinned in the exit hex which would have prevented the germans from exiting any squads. So it all came down to Gavin himself, whether he could defy the hailstorm of bullets or not. To the great relief for the german, Gavin tripped just before the exit, giving the victory to the germans.
2019-09-29(D) Ulric Schwela vs Steve Bond German winA tense and fast playing scenario, we played 3.5 turns in an hour and it was all over for the American with 2.5 squads and an 8-0 remaining. Our game was skewed by the dice however, as the Germans rolled an average 6.2 vs American 7.6, including hot dice that vapourised the 10-3 and 10-2 whenever they risked moving with FFNAM. Worth replaying to see how differently it could pan out.
