Panzer Leader 1940 was GREAT.Bo Rearguard wrote:I was always very fond of Avalon Hill's PanzerBlitz/PanzerLeader/Arab-Israeli War family of platoon and company level games. They weren't as detailed and realistic as Squad Leader, but they were simpler and easier to learn. You could actually play them in the time it took to fight a tactical battle wheras with Squad Leader you spent 15 minutes in the rule book trying to figure out if your squad could actually cross that open cornfield with MPs remaining because a sudden torrential downburst had turned it into a muddy quagmire...yadda, yadda yadda. That stuff is what computers were invented for.
My favorite of the lot was Panzer Leader which was set on the Western Front in 1944-45. AH came out with a variant version for 1940 as well.
