A solid issue with three very interestinig games

Saturday, October 16, 2004
Reviewer: Roland Lee from Houston, TX USA

Review: This issue of Panzerschreck contains three very interesting games, all of which are solid efforts.

St. George's Valour is a solitaire game similar in theme to Raid on St. Nazaire - the game is based on a British commando raid on a German U-boat base that happened in WWI. The British player must brave the guns of the German defenses in order to disembark his commandos (who then go about wreaking havoc while trading fire with German ground troops who slowly begin to trickle into play with each passing turn) and scuttle a ship loaded with high explosives and concrete in an effort to trap the U-boats docked at the base and prevent them from being deployed. The mechanics of the game are fairly simple and the player must make some difficult decisions as to how he will go about accomplishing his mission.

The Fall of Rohm is a solitaire card game that puts the player in the role of the leadership of Hitler's National Socialist Party as they plot to gain the favor of the Germany army, prop up the German economy, nurture the nascent SS and keep the SA in line while attempting to set up the eventual purge of the SA so as to guarantee the smooth transition of power from Hindenberg to Hitler. An unusual subject matter for a game but a solid effort.

Goring's War is a simple air-to-air combat game involving fighter aircraft set during the Battle of Britain (in addition to fighters, the Stuka is also 'modeled' in the game). The game is played with a standard deck of cards and is fairly abstract, although not so much so as to lose the flavor of what it is trying to represent. In some ways, it is similar to GMT's Rise of the Luftwaffe although the way in which both games handle some aspects of air-craft jockeying for position such as altitude, the tailing of air-craft and gunnery using the mechanics of card play are a little different. The plane set is fairly small, with only the Spitfire, Hurricane, Bf109, Bf110, Defiant and Stuka in the game; however, with a little bit of imagination, it shouldn't be too hard to make up house rules for such air-craft as the FW190, P-47 and so forth.
