Hey all, I would like to put together another campaign for this Spring/ Summer and make it into a ‘VDP Tournament’ of sorts. The logistics would include a total of 4 missions, and would require 6-8 players. In order to pull this off, it will take some planning, as we have had troubles even pulling together a foursome these days. In order to get rolling on it, I would like to find out how players would like to spread it out, 4 missions over 4 weeks on Thursday nights, OR do an all day Saturday event, OR weekend event where we run 2 games Sat, 2 on Sun, or a Fri/ Sat/ Sun mix. If I get six interested responses, I will pull it together and do a 2nd poll to lock down a date. I know the poll only allows you to vote once, so please if you do vote, also place a post and include if you are open to the other options as well.
How it would work- The campaign would be based on an actual historical battle that occurred in the war ( I am thinking of using the Battle of Le Hamel 4th July 1918) each mission would focus on the air support role for each side. Each mission will most likely include 2 seaters, which we have not used too much yet in VDP. We would score games using the typical DP score sheet (see my website for a copy) but also award points to each side for objectives completed. I will keep a separate ‘trenches’ map as well to show outcomes of the effects that each mission would have on the battle on the ground. LMK what you think!
Ok we have an overwhelming response for Thursdays, so Thursday it is! Although I still think it would be great to plan a Sat. all day tournament for late summer or fall... I will start a new thread w/ campaign details & sign up information, I wont have it setup this week, but we should be able to start May 1st!
