WWII Commander: Volume One – Battle Of The Bulge is a two-player game of the German offensive against the Western Allies in December 1944.

WWII Commander: Volume One – Battle Of The Bulge is the first in a series of fast-playing area-based games on key campaigns of the Second World War. The simple elegance and high player-interaction of the WWII Commander games recreates the tension of key battles of the Second World War. The overall game system is easy to learn and makes a great introduction to war games, but mastering its tactics and strategy is a true challenge as the players take turns deciding which units to activate on either attack or defense. As the German player, you must make big gains and be as aggressive as possible while you hold the numerical advantage without over-committing your units, over-extending supply lines or falling prone to fuel shortages. As the Allied player, you must first withstand the initial German surprise attack and coordinate effective holding actions while defending key geographic objectives as you muster your arriving forces for counterattacks.

The package features premium components throughout; from the mounted game board and oversized units, to the activation cubes and wooden control discs, sure to appeal to war gamers and euro gamers alike. The rules are simple, game play is fast and furious and can be completed in a single sitting, and victory may be achieved by either side at different stages of the game.

    Un excellent jeu pour commencer (comme moi) dans les Wargames!
    Matériel de très haute qualité - Les pions unités sont grands et beaux - Ils se détachent facilement et ont les coins arrondis - La carte est juste magnifique - Pas de petits hexagones mais de belles et grandes zones à traverser - Pas de règles d'empilement mais 3 unités amies au maximum par zone (et elles ont largement la place) - Pas de tableaux de combats rébarbatifs mais des règles très élégantes tout en restant réalistes - La perfection absolue - C'est le premier d'une série que je vais certainement suivre.

    Phénoménal !!!!

    Pour info on trouve les regles VF sur Boardgamegeek en PDF.

    Les regles sont accessibles et le jeu est très stratégique. L activation alternée et les événements chaque jours rendent le jeu palpitant.  Le matériel est vraiment de grande qualité.

    Je suis fan.
