Default Exercise T variant

Fellow citizens of the Ogreverse, I submit for your gaming pleasure a variant my son and I have developed for the "Exercise T" scenario (which you can read here: http://www.sjgames.com/pyramid/sample.html?id=2821).

We call it the Superheavy Variant. You play the advanced (3 wave) scenario on the crater map. Instead of a Mark III, each player receives 5 Superheavies as the second wave. Also, once any player has this second wave; then any player in sole control of the command post can opt to obtain a superheavy tank as a reinforcement instead of a randomly-rolled 3-of-a-kind.

This places the actual ogre action toward the end of the game, while introducing a little more maneuvering in the mid-game. My son and I plan to go public with this variant at GMX ("Geek Media Expo") Nashville this Friday night, where we are hosting an Ogre game. This scenario will be it.

Are you using 13.07 partial damage to superheavies?

Scott,

We discussed the idea, but thought it might be too much to ask of con-goers to manage 5 or more SHVY record sheets. (We don't know if we will have veterans, newcomers, or both.) I agree that it would make the scenario more interesting for veteran players.

Michael

Well in theory it would be 3-4, if you take into account the increased cost of SHVY from 13.07
