Designer: Philippe Naud
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
German (SS)British
"Massacre in Paradise" -- The German pressure around the Dunkirk defense perimeter was strong. Among the assailants was the Totenkopf Division of the Waffen-SS. It was made up of members of the "Death's Head Groups", guard units from concentration camps. The formation of the division aroused the hostility of the Wehrmacht, which refused to equip it. Himmler finally obtained Czech cannons and machineguns for the division. On 27 May, the division isolated the soldiers of the 2nd Royal Norfolk Regiment to the south of the hamlet of Le Paradis. The British entrenched in a large farm and underwent shelling and assault by the men of 2nd SS Regiment, who began taking heavy losses. The defenders resisted throughout an hour, then, encircled, exhausted and short of ammo, they surrendered. One hundred prisoners were then lined up against a wall and shot down by the machineguns of 4th Company.

2018-04-12(A) Jeff B vs Ed Donoghue German (SS) winHard to say how this one should've played out as the Brits had some terrible dice in the beginning. That, and the fact that they probably tried to pull back a couple times when they maybe should've stayed and tried to duke it out, leads me to believe that they should hold a slight edge. The big mortar is really only of much use the first turn or two, and that is most likely for smoke, though I did have time to disassemble mine, move it up, reassemble it, and lay some key game-winning smoke toward the end. Unless somebody sets up in the woods the meatball throwers are probably useless. German morale will certainly help the cause, though you wouldn't have guessed it based on my lousy rolling. In the end the Germans had grabbed 20 points with one turn left and there were only a few British units left: one in smoke, one in the middle of the street, and one in melee. So the Brits wisely conceded.
2015-01-01(D) BenJ Roth vs German (SS) winHide and seek party in the houses ... A decisive hand-to-hand combat gave the victory to the Germans
2013-10-05(A) Richard Carter vs Stephen M. British winI was able to get 19 stone locations. Outcome would have been different but he was able to self rally a unit in the multilevel bldg and was able to maintain control of 3 stone locations there. Excellent game! Came down to the end.
