At the start of this game I’ve had to do a lot of tedious rules studying
and careful wargame planning. I’m not experienced with either the SoS or
the SF naval rules, so the Apr I 40 game turn of the Campaign for Norway
Scenario has been daunting for me. I’ve relied some on Peter Ljunberg’s
Storm over Scandinavia Battlefield Report found in TEM #66 and in
particular on the interesting Campaign Report done by some good Europa
players which was posted earlier this year at the EA files.

What I hope to offer here in this EA posting is what might be called a
study of at least the scenario‘s Apr I 40 first game turn, covering the
Axis first turn execution of their invasion of Denmark and Norway and
(hopefully also) the Allied player’s first turn reaction to the German
invasion of Norway; but possibly more. This is done to maybe get some
feedback from more experienced SoS players regarding correct rules play
and execution of the complex German 1st turn invasion of Denmark and
Norway. The problem with reporting the play in the wargame is the
complexity and tediousness of the SoS naval rules, I think. There are
probably rules errors of my own and some of my wargame tactics and
strategy could likely be done better. Constructive criticism is invited
so that EA readers might perhaps better learn the rules accurately and
play better the SoS Campaign for Norway scenario wargame.
