I just played this for the first time. It took about an hour to set up but only about 2 1/2 hours to play. It was a German victory. They were quite lucky though rolling lots of ones! At the end of 7 turns they had 178 VPs. Needing 180 for a victory they elected to continue. The Russians went along with the decision to continue as a failure to do so would have guaranteed a German win. After 9 turns the Germans broke out and advanced adjacent to Kursk. Final VPs 205.
This is a fast fun game to play. It will get played again soon.After 7 turns the lines were very historical. The Russians had taken very heavy losses but still could have held with some luck. All in all a good game. Very solid for a magazine game. Ty Bomba does a great job here.
