An Advanced Wargame Noob

In this series of articles about the Grand Operational Simulation Series we have covered so far the big game procedures (Ground Assault, Fire Support, Supplies, etc.). It’s time to look at the ‘smaller’ rules. We start today by introducing Engineers and their capabilities. We will see that they play thematically a very important role.

Setting up the September Rush scenario of Hurtgen: Hell’s Forest. Thanks to my daughter for providing the tools (straws) to mark Zones of Operations.

The September Rush scenario is definitely a little bit more busy than the Bloody Bucket scenario.

Learning how to play Hurtgen: Hell’s Forest. Here’s a view of my current gaming area where I’m going through the excellent youtube tutorial series for the Bloody Bucket scenario by The War Gamer.

And yes, the next GOSS article should be online tomorrow. I will rant talk about the Supply rules… oohh!

Working on the next GOSS article: a first (guided) playthrough of the Bloody Bucket scenario.
