Product Details
Axis and Allies Battle of the Bulge
Axis and Allies Battle of the Bulge is a desperate struggle for victory in the most brutal conflicts of WWII. German tanks thunder into the snow-covered Ardennes forest, opposed only by a few unsuspecting divisions of exhausted American troops. As Axis forces plunge into the countryside, Allied troops must struggle to hold the front line in order to repel the all-out offensive. Axis and Allies Battle of the Bulge challenges you to control territory and contend with supply shortages, while directing infantry, artillery, tanks, and aircraft in one of the most decisive conflicts of World War II.

Axis and Allies Battle of the Bulge features detailed game components including a new truck piece, and a hex-based game board with original artwork. Other elements of this new Axis and Allies variant include circumstances that played key factors in the historical battle, such as supply shortages and late-battle air support, mechanics for overland vs. road movement, and randomized war casualties.

Axis and Allies depicts Wacht am Rhein (Watch on the Rhein), the German code name for this counteroffensive that took place toward the end of World War II. The objective: To capture the port city of Antwerp. It was expected the capture of Antwerp would cause great disruption in the Allied supply lines, and threaten to fracture the great Anglo-American alliance.

One player controls Germany, whose massive military build-up has gone undetected by the Allies, and are poised to unleash hell upon enemy forces. The second player controls the United Kingdom and the United States - they must stem the tide of German armor and hold their positions until reinforcements arrive.

Comments about Axis and Allies Battle of the Bulge:

An excellent game that sets the stage for the historic Battle of the Bulge. As with games of this complexity, the rules can be a bit confusing at first. Rules updates/clarifications are available from the publisher's website. Game mechanics are tedious regarding the supply chain component, but this re-creates the way the Battle of the Bulge was fought. Some casual gamers might feel bogged-down by the supply/reinforcement system. Overall a fun game that can teach a little history.
