Commanders, a wargame digest


World War Two - Operational

Quick Play and small footprint games.

Leningrad by Decision Games This is the 2013 reprint of this old SPI classic, that uses the Panzergruppe Guderian system. It uses my favourite game mechanic ... Untried Units, the entire Soviet order of battle are one step counters flipped face down, so that neither side knows their combat strength until the actual moment of combat, when the counters are flipped face up.

Celles by Revolution Games.  A slice of action from the Battle of the Bulge, covering the furthest extent of the German advance LINK

Moscow 1941 by Decision Games. Sister game to Leningrad (above), which covers the German drive onto Moscow from October onwards. LINK

Red Typhoon by Revolution Games. Covering the Soviet 1942 winter counter offensive in front of Moscow against Army Group Centre. Just 5 pages of rules delivers some classic gaming, but with a few modern twists. LINK
