Stalingrad: The Leather Factory, 2nd ed. is a solitaire strategy game depicting the battle of Kuporosnoye, September 13-15, 1942 between the German 29th Division and the Russian 35th Guards Division at the beginning of the epic battle for the city. It uses a solitaire system that reflects the historical situation but includes enough variability and uncertainty to enhance the fog of war feel-ing to foster replayability. Tactical, company-level... 300 yard hexes... stresses high playability and historicity. This new, second edition offers newly revised rules, optional rules, and components.  

 PDF POLICIES RATIONALE:  Each order will automatically include the standard $3.50 postage charge when you check out at Paypal. Why is this, if you are only buying PDF items that are emailed and require no postage?
  First, we have taken this into consideration, and offer lower purchase prices for each individual PDF item to offset this. For instance, if you order one item for $14.00, we priced it at $14.00 and not $17.50 (and zero postage).  
Second, this allows for a built in discount if ordering more than one item. By charging $3.50 per order (instead of adding $3.50 to the cost of each individual item), it allows you to save when buying more than one item at a time. (Example: If you order Panzerschreck #17 for $14.00 and Stalingrad: The Leather Factory for $12.00 at the same time, $26.00 plus $3.50 comes to $29.50--a savings of $3.50 had we priced them 
"normally" ($17.50 & $15.50) but without postage.) 
Bottom line:  This reasonable policy works in your favor to save you money; the more items you order at once, the less the average cost per title will be, and the better your bargain. 

We normally process orders two or three three times a week.  Please allow time for email acknowledgement (and PDF items with passwords) to show up in your inbox.  Thanks!

Swordfish at Taranto, 3rd ed.
PANZERSCHRECK #18  (Winter 2020-21) is a 94-page full-color, 6" x 9" professionally bound book format magazine containing three complete issue games--each specifically designed for solitaire play.  This, the largest edition ever, contains many game reviews (edited by our review editor, Robert G. Smith), variants, plus four classic interviews from earlier editions, featuring Richard Berg, Don Greenwood, John Hill, & Dana Lombardy. In addition to this wargaming content are three solitaire issue games. CHARGE OF THE LIGHT BRIGADE is a tactical game covering the famous charge during the Crimean War, 1854 (11 pages of rules, 6"x 9" map, 30 counters), with standard rules, and four scenarios.  GUNFIGHT AT O.K. CORRAL is a man vs man tactical game simulating the most famous gunfight in the Old West. Turns represent ten seconds, each counter represents one man.  Lawmen and cowboy rustlers are individually rated for gun speed, accuracy, experience, and morale.  You command the Earp brothers (Virgil, Wyatt, and Morgan) plus Doc Holliday against the Clanton-McLaury cowboy faction.  10 pages of rules, 11 counters).  FALL OF ROHM 2nd ed. is an abstract political game depicting the turbulent time in pre-WW2 Germany, as the National Socialists are consolidating power, and must effectively deal with Ernst Rohm and the S.A., and pave a way forward for Hitler's succession to Hindenburg. This new 2nd edition comes with 13-page rules, game display, counter set, plus new scenarios and minor modifications to the game system to increase playability. You must scan and print the components of the games before play. Alternatively, you may purchase a game component set separately if you wish a physical set to use for the games.  

Game reviews are provided for Campaigns of Montrose (Decision), Sea Kings (Worthington), 1066: Mother of All Tears (Hall), Custer's Last Stand (Worthington), Robin Hood (Worthington), Rampage (Decision), Santa Cruz 1797 (Bellica), To the South (War Drum), and Less than 60 Miles (Thin Red Line), and Roll for Omaha 1944 (Patterson).  Variants are provided for some golden oldies, NATO (SPI), and D-Day (Avalon Hill), plus the usual columns included in Panzerschreck each issue.  We may be biased, but we judge this is our biggest and best issue ever!

PANZERSCHRECK stresses old-fashioned wargaming fun, and has been written by wargamers, for wargamers.  Order your copy today, in physical book format, or electronic PDF format.  Three strategy games, loads of gaming content... great bang-for-your-buck wargaming fun!  

SWORDFISH AT TARANTO, 3rd ed. is a solitaire, tactical game depicting the British air assault on the Italian port of Taranto in November, 1940. About twenty Fairey Swordfish torpedo bombers essentially took out half of the Italian fleet during the raid, and the game puts you in control of the planes as you plan what approaches to use, where flares should be dropped, and what targets should be for your individual planes.  This edition is a 40-page, full color book, containing the rules, game tables, map, and Swordfish counters necessary to play.  All you need are two six-sided dice, paper and pencil, and scans of the game components.

This new edition features new scenarios, background articles, some slightly modified game tables that increase playability, and a Foreword by Norman Bell, editor of All Guns Blazing of the Naval Wargames Society. Designed by Gary Graber.

SWORDFISH AT TARANTO is a game player's game, and stresses not only playability but historicity.  See if you can duplicate -- or even better -- the results of the historic raid.
