What kind of scenarios will I be looking for?


Scenarios that:

  • can be played to conclusion in the time that we have available (no more than 16 hours for all three rounds)
  • have an interesting touch to them
  • are reasonably balanced (according to ROAR recordings and Chi-square statistical tests)
  • are taking place either in the European (ETO) or Pacific (PTO) Theatre of Operations. This excludes scenarios in the desert. There might be one night scenario in any of the rounds.
  • do not require an unusually large playing area, so that the boards fit on our available gaming tables


Now, what is the scenario selection?


As you can see in the program, Alpenfestung XV will be a three-round tournament. Scenarios will vary in size, but I aimed for a maximum total playing time (excluding setup) of 16:00 hrs. during two days.  


First round: The Sino-Japanese War 1937-1945 


I. 800 Heroes. Chinese vs. Japanese. October, 1937. 5.5 Turns. (4:20 hrs.)

II. Shanghai in Flames. Chinese vs. Japanese. October, 1937. 6.5 Turns (5:30 hrs.)

III. Totsugeki!. Chinese vs. Japanese. January, 1944. 6.5 Turns. (4:30 hrs.)


Second round: Australians in the Mediterranean


I. ANZAC Boys. Germans vs. ANZAC. May, 1941. 5 Turns. (3:20 hrs.)

II. The Governor. Vichy vs. Australian. June, 1941. 4.5 Turns. (3:40 hrs.)

III. Dingoes at Damour. Vichy vs. Australian. July, 1941. 5.5 Turns. (4:30 hrs.)


Third round: The Final Months on the Eastern Front


I. Sealing Their Fate. Germans vs. Russians. February, 1945. 6.0 Turns. (3:40 hrs.)

II. Into Vienna Woods. Germans vs. Russians. April, 1945. 6.0 Turns. (4:00 hrs.)

III. A Hotly Contested Crossroads. Germans vs. Russians. February, 1945. 5.5 Turns. (5:30 hrs.)

How do players agree on the scenario to be played?


  • In each round, you can select one of the three scenarios that you don't want to play.
  • If each of the two players of one pairing select different scenarios that they don't want to play, the remaining scenario gets to be played.
  • If both players exclude the same scenario, both players try to find an agreement about which of the remaining two scenarios they want to play. If they fail to find an agreement, they let the dice decide.



May I train or prepare the scenarios?


Feel free to study the maps and units that show up in the scenarios. But please - don't play the scenarios in advance (including solitaire). Also, don't check any LOS or write down setups. It's fine, of course, if you have played any of the scenarios in the past. 


Do we use the IFT or the IIFT (Incremental Infantry Fire Table) at Alpenfestung tournaments?


The IFT is the standard results table that is used at Alpenfestung tournaments unless both players of a particular pairing agree to use the IIFT. You can download the 3.6 version of the IIFT in Black & White (.pdf, 143kB) and in Colour (.pdf, 139kB) here.
