Looks like I maybe playing a very large scenario as part of a 4 day boardgaming event here in Houston. Been looking over the monster scenarios in RB/RO and VotG as an obvious first place to start. Since I usually avoid large scenarios, thought I toss this out for a recommendation. I’m guessing my time budget is 2 sessions of 12 hours.

if you could toss a line or two in about how the scenario played out that would be much appreciated, too.

I enjoyed "symphony of violence" by the east side gamers. Interesting situation and fairly balanced.

"Raid on Rodminstev" VotG24 9-8 on ROAR. Thus if you are playing 2 v 2 or more could be done in 1 of your 12 hour sessions, thus freeing you to play at will. I played this 1 v 1 over 1.5 days...enjoyed it...

Hill 621 or Raid on Rodminstev are both time well spent and fond ASL memories, Vic.

Another one by ESG is Destroy All Monsters. A huge Operation Nordwind scenario with lots of heavy German SPGs and dozens of American AFV trying to stop them.

Not sure if it counts as medium or large, but U2 - Sweep for Bordj Toum Bridge

BTW, is there a tournament or convention upcoming in Houston?
My board game group is setting up what I think they hope will be an annual thing. I guess it would be a convention. The organizer is keeping it low key this year as a proof of concept but if things go well, I’m going to get off my lazy butt and work closer with the Houston ASL club to see if we can a full ASL event alongside it for the next one.

thanks to all for the suggestions so far

What are your parameters? Deserts, PTO, Night, Winter / early, middle, or late war / armour heavy or light / MMP, TPP / HASL, scenario ???

Large and doable in 2x 12 hr sessions and fun for both sides (that’s the best part).

The topic is a trick question. There's no such thing as a good large scenario.
