The original Schlieffen Plan called for 48.5 corps. The German army in August of 1914 simply wasn’t that big.

It is now.

I have designed a what-if scenario that balloons the German army up the size the Schlieffen Plan required. The French and British stay their historical sizes.

The name of the game is see how long the French survive.

The Germans roll over the Old Contemptibles and into the fields of France

The end of turn one the Score is high at 6 to 6. The Germans let the French have Alscace/Lorraine.

In return the Germans contested every hex on the Marne and Paris. On turn one!!!

In good news Antwerp is holding. And I have to admit. This is a ton of fun.
