    Always good for some obscure titles and I have to admit possessing good taste in scenarios...

    Dispatches seems to be sparse from these lists yet possess and sparkling reputation. Replayability?

    Here are my top 10 from the last 10 years of play - interestingly during that time these are the only scenarios I gave a 10 rating a tt he time of play. I lost the four on the top - which means I must have really enjoyed them at the time. This list is obviously really subjective - most of these I would say that I had roughly equal skills to that of my opponent - hopefully my level of play has improved over time. Looking back at the list I would say that there are a few standard scenarios here but there are several that have a high degree of unpredictability with variable OoBs and/or VC's. I would say that my strong preference is to play a scenario only once so replayablility is not what I look for necessarily but several of these have some good options.

    I think one Poster listed Tigers and Flames a DftB scenario from a few issues ago. I think one of DFtB's problems is that many of their scenarios are very SSR and VC heavy, so that can make replayabilty some what rare. I really liked Turnscrew but boy those wall to wall text SSR were head spinning at times. Still if you want solid scenarios then DFtB is a great TPP for that.

    How about top 10 of Avalon Hill published scenarios? For those of us that only have the original modules and Annuals?

    Better to start your own thread and not side track the wider scope of this one.

    I thought Jabo derision was my thing. You've got your caves, can't I have Jabo derision?

    Derision? Of the greatest scenario ever made?

    It does have a rather high solitaire play potential, that alone should raise its interest level by several factors. (However, 8x0=0)

    Jabo is an interesting novelty. Where would the hobby be without it??

    Thunderbolts is an obscure pick, but good stuff. I can remember dueling with the Oddball Pz 4s!

    An honourable mention goes to the two Manila scenarios (Mayhem In Manila & Fill 'Er Up Mac) and the two Fuschin scenarios (First Day At Fuschin & Fuschin Fortified).

    Many of these have been listed twice, but if I'm counting correctly, AP62. Shouting into the Storm is the only one listed 3 times so far.
