Small Scenarios

Recommended Posts

Lately, I've been trying to...

How small can a scenario get, and still be tactically interesting? Or re-playable?

I realise that the smaller a game gets the larger part luck plays in it. If you’ve only got one tank, and it bogs on turn one…

Can anyone think of tiny games that worked? Or any thoughts on what makes a good micro-scenario.

I’m thinking about a re-enforced platoon (or two) level.

(I'm sure this had been discussed before. Somehwere.)

Back when Der Kessel was still around they had a section devoted to small scenario which they called "Byte battles". I forget the parameters, but I think it was a max of 1500 points total for both sides. Great for a Sunday afternoon of death and destruction.

I think Hans has a bunch of small battles which you can find at the scenario depot under the title SB (i.e., SB A Simple Attack). Another designer whose small battles I enjoy is AL (the Berlin one is a blast).
