Too many of my Crossfire Scenarios are draft and not play tested. This is because this website started as my wargaming notes and everything went on it, including unfinished work no matter how vague. With the move to WordPress I don’t do that any more; I now only post finished pieces. But I still have a lot of unfinished work on the site. Time to go back, tidy them up and most importantly play test them. And I could use some help.
Roll of Honour
I get the odd hint that people have played my games. I’d like to know about it. In fact, just by expressing an interest in one of my scenarios usually spurs me into action to tidy up, finish, and sometimes play it myself.
Dick Bryant corresponds often and lets me know which Crossfire Scenarios he has played and how it went. Sometimes he says “good game” but more often he is letting me know when things didn’t go so well. I appreciate Dick’s feedback even when it is criticism – I’m trying to make these scenarios better and all feedback is good. Most recently Dick and I have been discussing my SU-76i in 1902nd SAP scenario. Following Dick’s feedback I wrote up I’m working on some ideas for Breakthrough Objectives and then updated the scenario
I’ve also got to say thanks to Vaggelis for prodding me into action about Crossfire at Position Four: The Village P Scenario. This has been sitting around neglected and now it is finished and play tested. I’m very pleased.
Please add yourself to my roll of honour, and help with play testing.
How it would work
The most important step is … get in touch. Put a comment on the page of the scenario you are interested in, or Contact me on my website, or post something on the Yahoo Forum. It doesn’t matter how you do it, just get in touch.
If your favoured scenario needs some work I’ll spring into action and fix it up.
Then comes the bit I don’t really have much time for at the moment = play testing. Play the game and let me know how it goes.
If I had time these are the scenarios I’d play test
There are lots of Crossfire Scenarios on my site but the ones I’d really help with are the unfinished/un-play-tested ones. If I had sufficient time I’d go through them all, finish them, and then play them. But I’d do it in a certain order (maybe, possibly, if I were so organised).
The top priority scenario to revisit is the sequel to Crossfire at Position Four: The Village P Scenario (thanks Vaggelis):
Next for me would come the scenarios related to the Blue Division:
Other scenarios to revisit when I get time are:
- Eastern Front
- Spanish Civil War
- Rhine Crossing – Some Crossfire Scenarios
- Ranville and Orne River Bridge – A Crossfire Scenario
- Assault on Tobruk – A Crossfire Scenario
- St Aubin-sur-Mer – A Crossfire Scenario
You can’t believe how depressing writing that list was.
