Soviet rifle company in dire
straits in original Avalon Hill PanzerBlitz circa 1970
a two-player tactical board game simulating platoon and company level
combat of the Second World War, revolutionised war gaming when it first
appeared in 1970.
The designer, James F Dunnigan, clearly hit a
tactical sweet spot with a breakthrough small scale and fast-paced
sequence of play; throughout the Seventies he continued to refine the
basic game system with successive variations covering most 20th
century combined arms combat. While the many subsequent versions
enjoyed varying degrees of success the original Panzerblitz
remains the most popular and widely available.
With our Case
revision variant we hope to help restore popularity to a legendary game.

Fire The original PanzerBlitz was marred by
a rules shortfall which excluded firing at moving units. But can this
oversight be remedied without making things worse?
