I have only two base games plus all the expansions minus Overlord.

I think some of the issues around having enough units could be alleviated by using dice next to a single model, representing unit strength.
This would dramatically increase your available units however it wouldn't work for barb wire and sandbags....

Dice are a great idea, the big problem with playing all 6 are that you need 6 decks of breakthrough cards

Ahh crap - didn't know that...
Damn, kinda makes the game almost inaccessible at that point.

I saw the requirements for all the maps and it is sick!  What they should have done is include a full set of BEF minis in with the maps.  They could have easily charged $10-15 more and players would have had no problem dropping the extra.  

The new question is what are they going to do for the Pacific theater?

Yes, it would have been a good idea. Rolling Eyes

But i think you can play them individually.

Anyone notice a run on the required expansions?  I wanted to order another Med set and they are sold out.

Tee, all of the breakthrough and larger scenario maps have been on paper.  If this is like the others it is a heavier tear resistant type paper.  Assume weight is the likely issue.

I can get me plus 5 others.  Another 6 is going to be rough.  At least if I set up the full game, each of the 6 of us can play two sections at a time, if we are that crazy.

Game is OTW.  Should have it either Friday or Monday

Got it Saturday.  It is freaking huge!!  Each map measures 28 x 46, not counting for the shifts to line the maps up.  My table is only 44 x 108.  My friend is trying to line players up for a full game.

Last week, played the new omaha beach scenario from the D Day anniversary expansion.

we had a blast! i (germans) kept rolling and got reinforcements and at the same time managed to draw the cards to bring them forward.

the US managed a very narrow win. 16 to 14.
