I am offering to run a short CMBN mini-tournament. It would consist of teams of two players. In each team one player plays American vs an opposing team's German player and vice versa. The tournament can play with either four players (for a single round) or eight (for two rounds of play), other numbers will not work. The scenarios are simple but challenging - "No Better Place to Die" and "Shaule's Run". In the first scenario elements of the Germann 91st Luftlande division attempt to assault across the La Fiere causeway from West to East against the 82nd Airborne defending. In Shaule's Run, it is the 82nd Airborne's turn to attempt to assault across the causeway from East to West, with the 91st Luftlande defending.
Wining and losing will be determined by the highest scoring team not by winning or losing individual scenarios. Please PM me if interested.
An easier way to sign up is just to give this notice a 'Like".

I did not notice that my liking of the post signs me up. My apologies for that. I did not intend to sign up.
Unfortunately, the battles are too large for me to manage these days. This means that "my" place in @Kandu 's tournament is up for grabs (y)

If we can't find a fourth player to replace Drifter Man, I could step in if the player's don't mind, just to get everyone playing.

Okay, so at this point we have four players confirmed. The teams are as follows:
Team 1: Artkin (German), sspoom (American)
Team 2: MeatEtr (...), Shady Side (...)

Artkin and sspoom have already organized themselves.
MeatEtr and Shady Side need to decide who will play American and who German.
Once that is confirmed then set up a shared dropbox with your opponent on the other team.

One opposing pair will play Angriffe der Grenadiere and the other opposing pair will play Shaul's Run Mini.
The scenarios will be randomly assigned by me unless players have a preference and your opponent agrees.

MeatEtr and Shady please post here once you have determined your nationality.

Thanks for the invite, I'm ready to go here, though deeply vested in my usual CM related stuff. :)

Hmm. MeatEtr has raised a point that has got me thinking about play balance. Given the differences between the scenarios we should change the playing model. Under the current model one side would wind up being the attacker and the other defender in BOTH scenarios. My bad. That would not be reasaonable.

We can fix it using one of two ways:
(1) One team plays only German in both scenarios and the other plays American, .... or ....
(2) Every player plays both scenarios with one team member playing only German in both scenarios and the other team member playing only American in both scenarios.

Which do you folks prefer?

I think it would make sense to play them back to back instead of at the same time if we were to play two. But I am all in for whatever.

I Definitely prefer option 2 which gives all players an attack and defend battle. Also as @Artkin mentioned, I too prefer to play them back to back and not at the same time.
