The Deluxe version is the same but includes all the components of both the original Eisenbach Gap and Death of First Panzer with mounted maps for both. Unfortunately they are also some of the thinest cardboard counters you will find in any wargame. Someone ruless be willing to teach eisenbch how to play the game so you could see it before you buy it. Our only complaint is that we wish they had moved back in time a bit more to when the U.

It seemed a very good system that covers most things I want in this style of game and at company level which is my preferred game size these days. Gave it a go last night playing the first scenario that actually puts Team Yankee against the Russian 1st Tank Battalion.
It played very well with only a few hunts through the rules to answer queries. Would they translate to miniatures well? He began adding werewolf and vampire fiction into the background, for example. The scenarios generally have a very heavy emphasis on the Soviet as an unstoppable killing machine, and the West as a weak and beleaguered paper tiger being thrown back, pushed back, or retreating in disarray. And then there were some games where Texas was seceding from the union and Cuba and Nicaragua were attacking the remnants of the broken-up USA… At that point I was over it.
That said the guts of the game are sound, and the pieces are all very nice. If you get past the obsession with his own fictional universe and play the game as a game, it can be a lot of fun. As a setting it was lacking. As a game structure, if you were to put in the work to design your own scenarios that were more realistic, I think it would be an excellent place to start.

So here goes - a detailed narrative of a single turn of play using "First Moves" as a learning scenario for World at War. In "First Moves", the Soviets have two victory objectives. They must capture the towns of Bergengipfel and Eisenbach. The Americans win if they can stop them.
It is a Cold War era platoon-level board wargame. The unit scale is platoon and each hex represents m. While the game depicts fictional scenarios, Eisenbach Germany was a real point of possible contention during the Cold War. In addition, Eisenbach Gap is the first game in the World at War series so we will see additional titles using the same system in the future. Probably the first thing you will notice is the counters. They are very attractive and have an almost bewildering array of numbers on them.
