Description

This 48-page issue contains two World War II wargames, including rules and components, plus over a dozen wargame reviews for your enjoyment.

EBEN EMAEL is a solitaire, tactical-level game simulating the German glider assault of the Belgian fortress on May 10, 1940. The game uses point-to-point movement, turns representing approximately eight minutes, and squad-sized units. The player--representing the Germans--must first get his gliders to the target safely, and then, after landing, neutralize all the gun points atop the fortress in eight turns or less. Includes: complete rules, 57 color, thick card uncut counters, mapsheet.

PANZERSCHIFF is a two-player tactical-level naval game simulating World War II naval combat. The game comes with full rules, historical scenarios, 12 oblong battleship counters in color, on thick-card and uncut, and Reference Card. To play, you must supply a chess or checker board, as ships will be moved there. This is an introductory level game, with a nice bidding mechanism that will be of interest to competitive players and veterans.
