Description

Please note that this is a DTP (Desk Top Publishing) game designed on a desktop computer and all components, including the counters which will have to be cut and mounted, are printed on paper. These are designed by some very well-known designers and are a low cost alternative to today's professionally produced games. On rare occasions, some of these games are reproduced by other companies with higher quality components including die-cut counters but most of them are not. If you believe this game to have a professionally produced version, please contact us with your inquiry and we will help you to locate it if it does indeed exist.

The Battle for Leros uses two 11 x17" maps, 280 counters, rules. The focus of the game is the central sector where the paratroops dropped and many of the successful amphibious assaults occurred. Each turn is 8 hrs. Unit scale is platoon, each hex is 100-125 yards. The game is unique for it uses two distinct and different game sequences: an Invasion Sequence, which simulates units landing on shore and a Normal sequence for units already ashore. The game is filled with nuances: the obsolete stuka DB wreaked havoc on the British, the use of colored smoke to ID friend or foe, possible use of AFVs, the impact of naval destroyers, a realistic command and control activation system for the British, leaders, Bf109s and Ju 88s, use of German Brandenburger special forces, the most detailed and realistic paratroop drop method, and waffenbehalters (which are so critical to augment the paratroop combat strength!). The game covers the four day battle from Nov. 12 to 16. Up until the 15th, it was anyone's game!
