Gameplay

The aim is to play an operational wargame on some of the possible actions during the putative invasion of Britain by Germany in September 1940 – Operation Seelöwe (Sealion).

The focus of operations in the wargame will be at the Divisional Level in the East Kent area.

There are many options for how the Germans might have attacked, and this gives us a fair degree of freedom to come up with a wargame that gives some interesting challenges, as well as reflecting the style and pace of warfare in the 1940s.

The aim of the game is for the Germans to see how far they can push inland in the time-frame – and for the British to try and delay them as long as possible.

The game is built around teams, typically of four players each with team members representing either a Corps, Divisional or a Brigade Headquarters. Within the team, players take on staff roles covering Command, Intelligence, Operations and Communications roles.

There are also be roles for Air staff and for the Germans a Naval / Logistics element.
