Korean War: Counter-Attack, scenario #26: Manzai or Misery
I think this has a good scenario name and it was a little of both, Manzai and Misery. It is all about control of the most town hexes and casualties don’t matter. The South Korean (ROK) forces set up pretty much in town with the overflow units dug-in adjacent to town. The scenario starts off at 0400 hours in the dark, so the North Koreans can close pretty much adjacent to the ROK units before daylight and this is a straight Infantry slugfest and with no artillery support for either side. I won’t go into too many details of who shot who but by the scenarios end, the North Koreans had control of three out of four town hexes for the victory and lost eight steps while the ROK lost six steps and a Major Leader counter for decapitation and the game. The lower morale didn’t help the South Koreans and by games end, many were demoralize in the hills south of town. But this is a great small urban assault scenario.
