The goal was to keep the US forces just a little tentative. Leave a gap, and the Puma or a halftrack could slip through. Also for historical feel, as the over-extended 2nd Pz was trying to get back to a reasonable defense line. So if the German accomplishes such- even on a small scale- it would be considered victory.Magnus Rimvall and I played AP100 COAL IN THEIR STOCKINGS. I think this is a challenging, fun scenario for both sides. Two reconnaissance forces fight for stone buildings, but with a VP twist. The Americans receive two points for each controlled stone building at the end of each game turn. The Germans receive three points for each stone building that they still control at game end. The Germans also have exit VP possible, but to me that is more a feature to limit the early American options rather than a realistic VP objective.
I think the design along with the playtest team accomplished that goal.
