    You raise an excellent point, Chris. I merely wondered as to how the mechanics would flow with no stated aims or objectives for victory in a war game.
    I say, go for it, mate
    I will have to have a long, hard Think about this - but it Could be made to work.

      DOVER CUSTOMS 1st June 1940

      Scene: A grey haired sergeant major type customs officer is standing at the nothing to declare channel.

      Before him stand a group of suspiciously tall looking "Dutch" Women in wooden shoes and white hats.

      Customs officer: "Anything to declare?"

      "Dutch" Women Shuffle feet nervously and noisily.: "Nein!" fumble with mp40's badly wrapped in brown paper parcels.

      Customs officer: "Welcome to England"

      Head Dutch Woman" Danke, mein Herr. Sturmbanfurer? Vorwarts to London!"

            In the days leading to the invasion the Luftwaffe began dusting the South Eastern area of Britain with a white powder that when it came into contact with the ground it evaporated into the air and hung closely to the ground of about 10 metres.

            When the the first Luftwaffe paratroopers began landing the populations including the military defenders looked at the paratroopers and were besotted as thousands of Mary Poppins came floating down out of hundreds of Chitty, Chitty Bang Bangs.

            The locals welcomed these Mary Poppins by throwing flowers over them.

            Within days Britian surrendered. Germany had used their best weapon called "Loving Special Dust" or LSD for short.

              Credo quia absurdum.


              Quantum mechanics describes nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And yet it fully agrees with experiment. So I hope you can accept nature as She is - absurd! - Richard Feynman

                Within days Britian surrendered. Germany had used their best weapon called "Loving Special Dust" or LSD for short.
                Unfortunately - Either the German High Command has been taking LSD themselves, or they listened to Reports from Troops who had accidentally sniffed some of this Dust.

                What Really happened -

                Most of the individual Paratroopers were surrounded by small groups of Soldiers who had blackened faces - and were totally convinced that they were Chimney Sweeps ( like Dick Van Dyke ), and that their Rifles were Sweep's Brushes.
                They engaged individual German Paratroopers in nonsense conversations - then put them through a gruelling ordeal.
                Several of them were forced to dance endlessly around in big circles, through imaginary countryside, to take part in imaginery races and sing nonsense songs - including "Chim Chimminy".
                The "chimney sweeps" kept correcting them in a friendly way, whenever they got the Words wrong - and kept drilling them in how to dance and play properly, and the Words of the Songs.
                These "chimney sweeps" just did not belive that they were dealing with German Soldiers, just confused Mary Poppins's who had not learned their Parts properly - and who needed correcting. They were convinced that the German's Rifles were flying umbrelllas.
                By the end of the day - most of the Germans were exhausted, run ragged, and nearly going completely nutso !!
                A few unlucky Germans spent the whole day being forced to sing "Supercallifragilisticexpialidocious" for the whole day, until they got it Right !! Very few did - and most went totally nutso, braking down into Tears !!

                Some even more unlucky ones were even made to sing the "X Rated" version of the Song - "*Super*callous*flagillistic*expert*cunni*ling us*" by some very Randy Soldiers.

                A very few of the Paratroopers escaped, and got through to London - where a worse fate awaited them.
                Individuals were surrounded by even more Soldiers, also convinced that they were "chimney sweeps" - and forced to hand over their English Coins to buy bags of "bird feed".
                They were forced to listen to endless singing of "feed the birds - tuppence a bag". Later they were harrangued by City Gents in Bowler Hats, who accused them of "wasteful expenditure" and causing "financial collapse" - then made to gather up crumbs and pieces of stale bread, to fill bags of "bird feed".
                Finally, they were forced to gather at St. Paul's Cathedral and Trafalgar Square, to feed the thousands of hungry Pigeons.
                This lot ended up totally suicidal - and dropped their Guns in the street, falling asleep weeping endlessly.

                The following morning, the British Troops were their normal selves - and together with suspicious Farmers and City Folk - they rounded-up the Paratroops, and stuck them in Jails and Stockades.

                So much for the "Mary Poppins" Paratroppers - wonder what will come next.

                Oh Well - "Don't believe the Hype" as they used to say.
