Here is an interesting Kriegsspiel situation. You never see this in regular wargames. What if you lose contact with your commander? What should you do?
Our campaign began with our army dispersed wide over a province. The enemy declared war and intell reports that a large enemy army has crossed the border and is heading our direction.
I received no starting orders. Of my own initiative, I moved my Corps to a central location, in anticipation of a concentration. I immediately sent a report to the Army commander informing him of my intent and planned march.
I have been marching and fighting now for a week. I have destroyed 1 enemy Corps and am about to attack and destroy a second. I have been sending 1 Sit Rep every night to my Army commander. Reporting on my daily events, enemy positions and strength, and my intentions for my next maneuvers.
What is the response from the Army commander? Silence. I have yet to receive any orders or messages for the entire game. What does this mean? What should I do now? What would you do? Have I over stepped my bounds? Am I going way too far? Am I on the right track?
We usually think of silence as peaceful and serene. Here I find it fearsome and disturbing.
