Fanatic Enterprises (2003)
Country of Origin:
The sophomore effort from the prodigious hand of Paul Kenny was Fanatic Pack #2, another scenario pack featuring a dozen varied actions from around the battlefields of World War II. It was similar in nature to the first pack, although with slightly better proofreading (although still subpar) and an improved scenario card layout (there are boxes to represent counters now, for example). They are black and white, except for nationality symbols and one photograph.
The scenarios are weighted heavily towards the large; there’s 1 small scenario, 3 medium-sized scenarios, and 8 large ones.
- FE13 Defeat at Seroczyn. Poland 1939 (Poles vs. Germans)
- FE14 Stab in the Back. Poland 1939 (Poles vs. Soviets)
- FE15 Contested Landing. Netherlands 1940 (Dutch vs. German). Airdrop.
- FE16 Where the Bullet Meets the Bone. Yugoslavia 1941 (Yugoslav partisans vs. Italians)
- FE17 Philippine Scouts at Mabatang. Philippines 1942 (Filipinos/Americans vs. Japanese)
- FE18 The Bear Battalion Attacks. Guadalcanal 1942 (Americans vs. Japanese)
- FE19 Lemon Bridge. Sicily 1943 (British vs. Germans)
- FE20 Collision Course. Italy 1943 (Americans vs. Germans)
- FE21 Tiger of Vitebsk. Soviet Union 1943 (Soviets vs. Germans)
- FE22 Ritpong Rampage. Burma 1944 (Chinese vs. Japanese)
- FE23 Operation Spring. France 1944 (Canadians vs. Germans)
- FE24 An Unconventional Attack. Hungary 1945 (Soviets vs. Germans)
One scenario features gliders and airdrops; three scenarios are Night scenarios; one scenario has OBA. Several of the scenarios have balance problems and could have been playtested more (especially FE22, Ritpong Rampage). However, other scenarios are quite fun, especially FE13 (Defeat at Seroczyn), featuring a Polish attack across a river against a German position. The most played scenario is also fairly balanced: FE16 (Where the Bullet Meets the Bone).
