should I even consider getting Storm Over Stalingrad? Is it worth the time and effort? Is SOS that much better than TPS?

Hello

I haven't played any of them, but I've heard / read that Turning Point Stalingrad is far superior.

Regards

Depends on what you want. I've played both and TPS is obviously better but SOS is much faster and affordable.

So how is SOS faster? What are the supply rules like in SOS?

I think SOS is a game that even non wargamers could play perfectly.
It´s an easy version of the classics area games. All mechanisms are simpler (in combat, only the attacker throws dice, for example). And you can finish it in a single session.

About the only thing TPS and SOS have in common are a map with areas. Seriously. No comparison.
