Big Games

Normandy Landing


This big game scenario is based off of the D-Day Landing on the beaches of Normandy, France, at the end of the second World War; the landing of 24,000 US, British, and Canadian airborne troops. The men landed under heavy fire from gun emplacements overlooking the beaches, and the shore was mined and covered with obstacles such as wooden stakes, metal tripods, and barbed wire, making the work of the beach-clearing teams difficult and dangerous.

The American missions are as follows (The German missions are to defend against the following):

  • 1 - Take the beach and secure HQ locations (Field: Landing zone/Bridge/Mountain/Valley)
  • 2 - Secure German Mortar pits (Field: Valley/Mountain)
  • 3 - Take over the German Ammo dump (Field: Dark Forest)
  • 4 - Take the German Fuel station (Field: Jungle)
  • 5 - Secure the German Radio Station (Field: Dark Forest)
  • 6 - Retrieve the German Gold and bring it back to HQ (Field: Jungle/Dark Forest)
  • 7 - Save the US prisoners of war (Field: Dark Forest Dead Zone)
  • 8 - Take the town of Aachen (Field: Town)
  • 9 - Take Berlin (Field: Castle)
  • 10 - Take out the German Leader, Warlord Ben (Field: unknown)

Sea Yacht Overview

Modern use of the term designates two different classes of watercraft, sailing and power boats. Yachts differ from working ships mainly by their leisure purpose, and it was not until the rise of the steamboat and other types of powerboat that sailing vessels in general came to be perceived as luxury, or recreational vessels. Later the term came to encompass motor boats for primarily private pleasure purposes as well.

A few countries have a special flag worn by recreational boats or ships, which indicates the nationality of the ship. Although inspired by the national flag, the yacht ensign does not always correspond with the civil or merchant ensign of the state in question.
