I'll start. I always liked fair fight just throw the minis on the table and play. Least favorite was cauldron. I'm dating myself as an old timer lol. How about you?

Anything with a fortified company.
The geometric restrictions are ludicrous.
Same perimeter, no matter the size of the platoon.

As for "favorite", just historical lineups. I think the "book" scenarios are too "gamey" and tournamenty.

What was that defensive mission from Hitler's Fire Brigade? That was truly awful.

I liked the Vietnam missions, especially with Air Cav.

I hated the D-Day mission, it's far too variable in what can reach the beach.

The Cauldron is one of my favourites…it throws plenty of problems at you and it makes you think. I like Breakthrough as well and most of the mobile battle ones are good at not being predictable. I don't have a least favourite type but there's always a risk that encounter or fair fight will lead to boring tactics from the players, resulting in slugging matches to the last man with little manoeuver.

Free-for-all, one of my faves. Any with delayed reserves depending on dice results,not as much,but tolerable. Less so when your forces are confined to a small pocket at the start.
