Blitzkrieg Commander – Wargame Rules for WWII

Blitzkreig Commander RulesI don’t know if it is perhaps dangerous to say this after o­nly o­ne battle! But o­n Saturday Night my group used the new WW2 rules BLITZKRIEG COMMANDER and I would have to say that these are the BEST WW2 land rules I have ever used. Fast and easy to play with innovative systems. Brilliantly laid out and with just about everything you need, rather than lots of supplements.

These are the o­nly rules I have every used o­n a tabletop, where I actually got the feeling of ‘Blitzkrieg’. Les was attacking a Polish Cavalry regiment that had occupied a farm during the 1939 Poland, PBEM campaign I have been running for the Wargames Mongrel group o­n the WWW. Everyone caught o­n to the system by move two or three and from then o­n everyone called out the system and scores to get results. I felt that by the end of the game everyone knew the rules and could have refereed a game. It was bloody brilliant!!!

      Doing well Bob – typing this from Jakarta – Breakfast in Singapore, dinner in Jakarta, several kilos of figures sitting unpainted in the condo … but some rules to read whilst I am away.

      I must plead guilty to never having looked at Mein Panzer … are they any good? 🙂

      As you may have noticed from recent posts, 19th century Europe is starting to interest me … trying to decide whether or not to do it as historical or imagi-nation. Of course, 19th century Europe could so easily lead me back to Victorian Science Fiction again … sigh, so many periods, so many projects, not nearly enough time!
