A number of our scenarios come from actual battles involving Canadian troops. Our Ortona Scenario is loosely based on a terrible battle Canadian troops fought against the Germans for the strategic Italian town of Ortona. Ortona was situated along the route to Rome. English General, Bernard Montgomery, demanded that the Canadians take the town at all costs. German dictator, Adolf Hitler, demanded his defenders hold Ortona to the last man. After a terrible fight just to reach the outskirts, the Canadian troops eventually did take Ortona, but only after suffering horrendous casualties in the brutal house to house combat. We replicate this battle with each team getting an opportunity to attack and defend our 'Graintown'.
Our Dieppe Scenario takes our players back to the disasterous 1942 attack on the Nazi occupied French port of Dieppe. For decades this debacle (which resulted in the death, wounding or capture of half of the 5000 Canadian troops involved) was considered a warmup for the later Normandy invasion. Recently, we have discovered the mini-invasion was actually an unsuccessful attempt to capture one of the German's elusive 'Enigma' Cyper Machines. We give our players a chance to change history. Based upon the much more successful Canadian beach assault, our Normandy Scenario is loosely based on the Canadians' attack upon Juno beach during the Normandy invasion. The Germans held much superior defensive positions, but they were limited in manpower and supplies. We try to ensure that the Canadians win this encounter. In our scenario the Germans receive no reinforcements or extra ammunition, while the Canadians can keep sending waves of troops from their landing craft. We also allow the Canucks an opportunity to initially place a small portion of their men in behind the German lines as paratroopers.
We have developed several new scenarios, a 'Cowboys and Aliens' scenario for Vulcan's 'Spock Days', and a Zombie Apocalypse as well as a super new windup scenario tentatively titled 'Vampire King'. We are still working on Vimy Ridge and WWI trench scenarios as well as a hilltop defense based on the Canadian's amazing rebuff of hordes of Chinese and North Korean troops at Kapyung during the Korean War.
