I'm wondering why Avalanche Press is not selling Panzer Grenadier: Eastern Front anymore. Any news about reprint or new edition?

The following is my understanding from the information I have read from AP.

EF is done.

There is not going to be any kind of reprint. There is one game that is kind of a replacement for EF, but I don't really know anything about since it is duplicative for me.

Don't know if the boards will be reused or not. I personally like the EF boards better than the new boards with "better artwork".


One of the problems with EF is that the scenarios are kind of a mess. They were written based on the event, not a good gaming experience. The Victory Conditions for the scenarios all basically need a complete rewrite.

EFD as a game will not be back. It's reincarnation is going to be Fire on the Steppes. The boards have been redone in the "better artwork" that Russel seems to dislike. I am told there is an emphasis on the Dubno-Lutsk-Brody battles.

There are still probably 2nd hand copies available, and the scenarios are fully compatible with 4th edition rules. As Russell points out, the scenarios can be a mess. Many (and not all) are not particularly well balanced. With "Fire on the Steppes", I expect to have a much better gaming experience.
