Play D-Day to Berlin with Me

Play D-Day to Berlin with Me

I am using Vassal.org to play remote miniature board games with players.  I have modified the Vassal game for Peter Pigs “Poor Bloody Infantry” for its map and counters. 

To play the game you will need to install the free version of TeamViewer on your computer (www.teamviewer.us).

We will then schedule a game period of an hour and you will then loginto my game computer via TeamViewer and we will play what is actually a boardgame of D-Day to Berlin.

Sound like fun?  If so e-mail me at sentry1212 at dayofbattle dot com.  Please copy this into your e-mail program and fix the at and dot.  Put “Playtest” in the subject header.

I look forward to gaming with you 🙂

Maine Wargamers Game Day – Oct 12 DDtB Game

D-Day to berlinI will be running a morning game of D-Day to Berlin for up to 8 players.  My hope is to have two players as the corps commanders and they will give orders to the division commanders along with allocating corps assets to the individual divisions and determine the division boundary lines.

Chris Parker

Here is my scenario

Operation Queen, WW II Western Front

15mm miniatures using D-Day to Berlin (https://www.chrisparkergames.com/d-day-to-berlin-wwii-rules/)

General Bradley assured his lieutenants that Operation Queen – the 12th Army Group assault designed to scourge enemy defenses east and north of Aachen.  Just past midnight on November 16, 1944, Sherman tank and infantry battalions surged eastward toward the Roer. The entrenched enemy quickly stiffened. “Players are encouraged to download the rules and give them a read before game day.

Here is a note from the president.


Hello all,

The gaming season is now into full swing! There are many events happening in October, and even on the same day on October 12. If you are not attending Dave Valentine’s Makers Fair Game Day in Amherst, NH on the 12th, then  you need to come to the MHWA Game Day in the Cumberland Room at the Double Tree Hotel in South Portland! The MHWA Game Day is an open to the public, no cover charge event. Please spread the word and invite as many as you can to attend to play and see what the MHWA has to offer.

One of the benefits of being an MHWA member is the ability to sign up for a game in advance. Please enter your name onto the list to reserve a spot in a game. The line up is full of great games being run by excellent game masters! Navigate to the document/game sign up sheet at this LINK

Another very important task that we, the members of the Maine Historical Wargamers Association need to do on October 12 is to vote for next year’s officers. The future of the MHWA and Huzzah needs your input and efforts. Nominations for all officer positions is still open. If you would like to nominate someone, please send the nomination to this email address: president@mhwa.info  Nominations will close at Midnight, October 10 to allow names to be placed on the ballot.

See you at the MHWA Game Day on October 12,

D-Day to Berlin Goes Square

Yes Square man, dig it -like Maynard G Krebs on The many loves of Dobie Gillis

Who most people are saying.  Google it Baby.

So anyway yes I have decided a game of this size and scope needed to move from measuring with rulers to squares.  I am following the path of Rommel by Sam Mustafa, Poor Bloody Infantry by Peter Pig and many others.

There is a new download of the rules available here for your reading pleasure.

Download Free Beta Version Here >>>>

Stacking rules will allow up to 4 battalions to be in a single square.  Distance shooting has been eliminated except for Artillery Battalions.

This has really sped up the game.  As a test I set up a corps on corps game with 3 divisions of Americans against Germans.  Now granted I know the rules but I played a 2 day game in three hours.  It was down to the wire as well due to the random first move Initiative check at the beginning of each game turn and of course the Rally rules.

More later

Chris
