Battle of the Bulge, Hitler's Unternehmen Wacht am Rhein, the last major offensive against Allied troops in the West began 65 years ago. With over 800,000 men committed and over 19,000 Americans killed, the Battle of the Bulge was one of the the largest and bloodiest battles that American forces experienced in World War II. Many war games have been published on this battle from game companies large and small throughout the years.

I've currently got Darkest December set up for my annual trip back to the Bulge. This ATS game features a lot of scenarios (16 IIRC) on three different maps, Melines, Hotten and the Quatre Bras crossroads. I'm planning to play out the scenarios on the QB map this year.

This was another SPI "mini" version of the battle. It was reprinted the next year as The Big Red One to captialize on the movie of the same name.

Some classic ASL Bulge scenarios that makes use of the full range of ASL board options (regular, deluxe and the HASL maps from KG Peiper). Some have quibbled with the heavy use of special rules by the publisher (this one from memory had additional rules for bayonet charges and supplementary armour on AFVs amongst others) but if you perservere you will be rewarded with some intense games.

This pack is also significant for me as it is one of the first Third Party Published items I purchased for ASL. The TPP support that exists for ASL is surely one of the main contributors to the richness of the playing experience and the longevity of the game system

I've just put this up on my CoatneyHistory webpage as a free print-and-play. Tiger Attack! is a relatively very fast and simple point-to-point, firing point (vs. odds ratio) combat boardgame, and we've had a lot of fun playtesting it over here in Oslo's Ares wargames club. (There is an After Action Report under its BGG listing.)

FREE print-and-play half-hour-lunch game. Division-to-corps level. U.S. starts with 6 units - Germans with 9. 6 hexes from Our River to Namur.

Simple hex-and-counter mechanics, but with significant chrome historical details ... like the German player's option to use the Waffen-SS Ruthlessness (and consequential GI Rage) rule.
