New MBT Maps and Scenarios

I played a lot of Avalon Hill’s MBT game when it first came out.

Tactical Gamex: Alternate Rules For PanzerBlitz and Panzer Leader

Tactical Gamex is an interesting project. In it, the author attempts to update the rules for Avalon Hill’s classic PanzerBlitz and Panzer Leader:

Tactical GameX is a new interpretation of the classic Avalon Hill games PanzerBlitz and Panzer Leader. An effort has been taken to bring the play of these games into the 21st Century. Rather than moving all units at a time, players swap impulses, moving an unknown number of units at a time. There are also options to turn the game into a card-driven system complete with random events.

 My inspiration for creating this new rules set was the vast (and I do mean vast!) number of supplemental units and maps created by the folks at the Imaginative Strategist. The goal was to create a system that was fully backward compatible with the classic games, but provide a more interactive and suspenseful experience with the option to play with armies from all the nations fielding substantial armies during World War 2.
