Tigers on the Hunt – Kursk DLC

This is a short review of a very long game – the new Tigers on the Hunt DLC which covers parts of the Battle of Kursk.

At first it doesn’t sound very big, after all it only covers three battles – Psel Bridgehead, Slaughter of  Prokhorovka , and finally Bled White. But since these are each at least 3 day battles and each day is 12 turns, well you can see it all adds up.

They’ve changed the scale of the game from each turn being minutes to about 2 hours each. So there’s 8 turns of daylight and 4 night time turns. But inspite of this the game plays the same and so far – I haven’t gotten to any night turns yet – plays very well.

It’s great to see this game getting plugged into some historical situations and of course there’s few things larger or more important than the Battle of Kursk.

My video introduction is below as well as the first video of playing through the whole thing! A big undertaking but one that I’m enjoying. If you are at all into this kind of thing I highly recommend you pick up this little beauty. Just remember, this is an add on so you have to own Tigers on the Hunt for this to work.

Thank you Matrix Games for the free review copy.

02 Strategic Command WIE – Toe Hold In England

Believe it or not I’ve actually managed to grab a toe hold in England! So Sea Lion has happened but will it succeed? And will I ever post anything on this blog again other than Wargame stuff?

The beginning of the answer to the first question is below, to answer the second you’ll just have to stay tuned!

03 Strategic Command WIE – Reinforced & Realigned

Here’s go with another of my SC WIE play through – enjoy!

Also, I found a great article explaining how supply and HQ’s work in this game. I playtested this thing and learn several things I didn’t know (might help if I would read the rules huh?), so if you play SC you really ought to read this.

01 Strategic Command Axis – Taking the Low Countries

Finally and at last I think I’ve got most of the software problems I’ve been having for nearly a year worked out. Not sure why it’s working but it is so I’m going to try and take advantage of it!

Below are part one of my play through of a game I helped to Beta Test – Strategic Command WWII War In Europe from Matrix Games. Poland has fallen and now the campaign to take the Low Countries and France is about to begin. Enjoy!
