Starter kit scenario?: Deluxe scenario?:
Overview:The Red Army had not yet heard of the 2nd Division's failure to capture Chihsui and was still heading north. They were still being followed by KMT troops. These were thought to be two regiments of poor quality, opium addicted local troops. Mao decided he had an opportunity to turn on the outnumbered KMT vanguard claiming a quick victory for himself and gain some breathing room. Orders went out, columns converged and an attack was ready. The KMT were not such easy prey after all, they consisted of four regiments of top notch Sichuan troops determined to keep the Red Army out of their home province. By the afternoon, the Red Army was fighting for its life.
Attacker: Red Army (Elements of 2nd Division, Red Army)
Defender: KMT (Elements of KMT)

|Agree with the Campaign chart as to the number of points...but anyone can simply count up the CVP per side.|
Unbalanced? or not taking advantage of the topography?
This scenario has 3 squads of reinforcements coming on PER TURN. meaning the Red Chinese WILL be overcome if they can't score their points early and then FALL BACK....the point isn't to hold ground (small group of buildings) but to destroy/capture units and retreat. Use the 2 MMG for firelanes to protect your retreating units....I'd suggest a retreat to the OG side of the map as Firelanes are worthless through the Orchards.
My opponent made good headway, but ran into VASL dicebot.
Again, I think it needs to be REALLY looked at as to what the RED needs to do here. score 20 points and avoid losing 30.... when they are getting outclassed mid game...they need to retreat after scoring their quick 20...They have the NUMBERS Early on with the commissar rallying everyone....use that and take the game.
|2010-03-20||(A) Glen Taylor||vs||KMT||Red Army win||Most all of these Long March Scenarios are unbalanced and rules reguarding how victory points are add are unclear. The campaign chart givien with the scenario package has wrong victory point totals. This scenario had way to many turns.|
