The Battle of Kursk was the largest tank battle the world had ever seen. It was also a point where the seemingly unbeatable German war machine was halted by the Russians. A true turning point in history, it will soon be brought to your tabletops in Platoon Commander Deluxe: Kursk, a new board game up on Kickstarter. In this strategic game, take control of either the Germans or the Russians and maneuver your units around the hex-grid board. Will you be able to rewrite history, or will the mighty Soviet Empire prevail again?
From the campaign:
Designed by Mark H. Walker and David K. van Hoose, Platoon Commander Deluxe: Kursk (PCD:K) is the gorgeous port of Tiny Battles’ well-known Platoon Commander system to Flying Pig’s big box, mounted map, large counter method of game publishing. Each game includes TWO mounted 11” x 17” geomorphic maps, and four sheets of thick (2mm thick, wow these counters are so easy to pick up, thick, why haven’t wargames been like this forever, thick), 1” square counters. There are Tiger tanks, Panther tanks, Mk IV tanks, T-34/76 tanks, KV-1 tanks, SU-152 assault guns, infantry (rifle, guards, pioneers, submachine gun), mortar batteries, Stukas, IL-2, and more.
The campaign’s right at the cusp of funding with still 29 days left to go.
