This will be a narrative big-game event, with themed briefings for both games by “High Command Officers” in costume, who will explain the significance of the mission, and set the mood of the event.
Fair play and good sportsmanship will be a key focus of this event, as there will potentially be several new players.
The current rulebook (Team Yankee Version 2) and most recent Lessons From the Front will be used. Any of the most current Team Yankee army books may be used for force construction.
There will be “Red” (Warsaw Pact) and “Blue” (NATO) teams for both games. Middle Eastern Factions will ally with Red or Blue depending on the split. If NATO STILL outnumbers Pact, France will defect (and, as an absolute LAST resort, Germany – to the horror of the free world – will reunite on Red team).
PART 1 – “Fire Wall”
“L” shaped table
10:30am – 1:30pm
Warsaw Pact forces have charged into Western Europe – WWIII has begun! The reds have carved a deep salient through West Germany on their drive to the vital port of Hamburg. On the city outskirts, scattered NATO forces make their stand against the Soviet Vanguard.
Pact forces must take and hold the entrance to Hamburg from the main road – Autobahn 24. They will have regenerating reserves. NATO must seize objectives on both flanks of the salient to end the game, or hold Autobahn 24 until time is called.
PART 2 – “Equalizer”
“+” shaped table
2:30pm – 5:30pm
A glimmer of hope appears for NATO forces; new F-117 “Nighthawk” stealth strike fighters have begun operating against Warsaw Pact ground-based air defense forces at night, slowly tipping the balance of air power in favor of NATO. Unfortunately, one of the forward bases hosting these new fighters – thought safe in the Bavarian Alps – has been threatened by the swift advance of Soviet ground troops.
Pact forces must seize the secret Bavarian Airbase and capture as much information as possible related to the new fighters. NATO forces must defend / relieve the besieged base and protect – or destroy – the secrets of their new weapon. By nightfall, if at least one base runway is clear, and at least one hanger entrance is unobstructed, the F-117s will take flight and drive off any Warsaw Pact forces in the area. Otherwise, the Soviets may escape with any captured secrets of NATO’s equalizer…
