Games…

Kharkov Battles: Before & After Fall Blau – Wargame

Kharkov Battles: Before & After Fall Blau – Wargame. Uses the Fall Blau basic rules to cover the Second and Third Battles of Kharkov. Stacking is three units per hex, and combat out of a hex is restricted. Large units (mainly German divisions and Soviet corps) have Combat Ratings which pull a strength chit for combat. Typically only one unit with a strength chit may combat out of a hex along with all smaller units. Movement and Combat phases with Mobile Assaults for mechanized units during certain situations of movement. Combat keys off the defender's terrain and uses CRT column shifts for extras like air support, combined arms, fortifications, etc.

Given the nature of the covered battles, this game has a shorter playtime and smaller space requirements, making it an easier intro into the system used by the wargame Fall Blau. Included is a revised Terrain Effects Chart which should ease reference fatigue for either game. An additional map is included which is made to mate with the Fall Blau maps, allowing players to combine the two games into one Grand Campaign to be played into March 1943. Also included are extra counters and reinforcement charts to allow for this possibility. There are four scenarios within the game: three independent and one which requires Fall Blau to play.

Product Information: Complexity: 5 out of 10; Solitaire Suitability: 8 out of 10; Time Scale: 1 turn = 3 days; Map Scale: 1 hex = 6.5 miles or about 10km; Unit Scale: Mostly Divisions, with Corps, Brigades and Battalions, as needed; Players: 2 and solitaire; Playing Time: Less than two hours for small scenarios and up to 80 hours for the extended Fall Blau campaign. $69.00 USD
