The XLVII Panzer Corps attacks with the 2. Panzer Division and the 26. Volksgrenadier Division, reinforced by the Panzer Lehr Division. The defense was provided by part of the 110th Infantry Regiment of the 28th Infantry Division. It should have been a blitzkrieg through the thin defenses, but stubborn resistance, the terrain, and the well-managed commitment of American reinforcements caused the German attack to fail to take Bastogne just as the 101st Airborne Division arrived. Although German forces bypassed Bastogne to extend the "Bulge," the 101st struggled to defend the crossroads city.

Race For Bastogne simulates the attack of the German XLVII Corps through the Our by the 110th Infantry Regiment, the delaying actions of Combat Command Reserve, 9th Armored Division and Combat Command B, 10th Armored Division, and then the defense of Bastogne by the 101st Airborne Division. The game covers the night of December 15 to the night of December 25, 1944. The German initially commands three "divisions" and the American two "divisions" on two maps laid end to end.

Race For Bastogne includes a campaign and six scenarios; five of them use a single map (or parts of a single map), and the sixth uses both maps.
