This is an excellent solitaire game. My goodness I felt I could write a book from playing this game. "My life in a Tank".

One of the best solitaire experiences I have had and I am quite old and been playing for 45 years.

I would give it a higher rating if I could.

Similar to B-17: Queen of the Skies, but with more options and more things to do.

You're a tank commander here, so basic interest in tank combat is a requirement.

Very fun and easy solo game. After some plays it flows smoothly offering great excitement till you meet a 88.

Excellent solitaire game. See how many tanks you can get through before reaching Berlin (or not)

I love this game. But, the rules take some effort to come up to speed, or when you have not played in a while.

This game is great after using the "General" articles to tweak it. It needs to be revised and and brought back with more theatres by MMP.

Love this Game, Campaign play is a must, it makes it come alive. The book, reccomended in the rulebook, "Hit Hard" is excellent.

Great game with a lot of hard decisions to make as you try to keep your poor crew alive in the deathtrap that was a Sherman.

One of those classic games that really delivers on its hype, the game mechanic isn't all too modern and definitely to do with some fleshing out, but what is there works and I love playing the campaign. On the whole this game is on par with B-17 for me (these games are different, but from the same era of offline gaming), this one has more choices, is a little more involved and fits a certain mood better, but B-17 is good to pick up when I need a break from thinking. Highly recommended, worth the effort of buying and learning and rewards that in excess to your effort.

Very good solitaire game. Needs some improvement in enemy unit selection. Gets boring with no variants.

A good solo game of armored combat in Europe during World War 2. Very detailed (especially in the many variants of the M4 Sherman tank), but a bit too complex for many gamers. Definitely has a somewhat steep learning curve.

A very good solo game. A history lesson on the Sherman tank. Plays a bit long – moving from one area to the next. I use as much time as possible when moving from area to area. Try the Sherman Firefly variant for some real fun!

The British Sherman Firefly and other variants from The General Magazine add some spice.

Very nice Avalon Hill solitaire game. Not enough of these solitaire games are out there, which makes this a high ranker based on lack of competition alone.

Great solo game fun! One of my favorite WWII games, and I would never imagine parting with it. Decisions you make as commander can definitely tip the scales one way or the other on whether your tank survives to fight again, or ends up as a burning wreck.

I get the same experience as playing a computer tank simulator (very rare these days). The decisions you make are the same.

Recently re-aquired this game after owning it many years ago. Originally didn't really take to it. I had B17 and was excited about the prospect of being able to do good stuff fighting in a tank in Europe. Never really got into the game. I never seemed to be able to kill anything and yet my task group was always killing stuff....felt very boring and was not great fun!

I now see it differently especially after reading the articles in the General and I think I was possibly unaware of some of the rules and just mis-interpreted some of them. My recent plays have been fun and exciting and the idea of getting the crew through the campaign is much more appealing now over the general desire to blow stuff up all the time.... not that I have passed up on a cheeky shot or two at the odd Panther or AT when the moment is right!

There is a lot in this game and it is certainly very,very immersive, It is a little rules heavy and more so that B17 but, I think on balance I am enjoying Patton's Best more than B17...time will tell.

Once you learn the rules, the game almost makes you feel as if you're really commanding a Sherman tank.
