for "armored lightening"
It is also a board game
made by Avalon Hill back in its glory days
of the 1970's; 1970 to be exact for this game. It is a fast
game of tactical
, specificlay armored combat.
The multiuse components of the game allows the players to mix and match the boards to recreate many of the battles of the eastern front war
form 1941 thru 1945.
Scenerio cards detail what unit counters get used, what map
configuration to set up, victory
conditions and genral backround on the scenerios battle
. The scenerios are well done, often leaving in the numerical superiorty of one side over another in so as to test the players skills rather than balancing it for the sake of "fairness"
The game's depth of play and ease of learning are probably what has kept it a popular board game
amongst war gamers.
