Battle Pack #2 - Stalingrad

Combat Commander: Battle Pack #2 – Stalingrad is the second themed collection of scenarios for use with the Combat Commander: Europe series of games. The theme of this second Battle Pack shifts to the East Front in late 1942 as German and Soviet forces clash in and around the vaunted city of Stalingrad. CC–Stalingrad features eleven new scenarios printed on cardstock – one of which is a new style of multi-scenario Campaign Game – as well as eight new maps and dozens of new counters. Numerous additional rules relevant to the dense urban fighting characteristic of the struggle for Stalingrad are also included: Factories; Urban Snipers; Ongoing Melee; Rubble, Debris & Craters; Underground Sewer Movement; and the “Ampulomet” Molotov Launcher.

**NEW** The tables now include play counts, average length in minutes and an average number of time triggers per playing. These stats are based on plays entered by all users.

* The Min/Max Time columns are to provide some sense of the length of the scenario relavtive to other scenarios. Of course, multiple Time Events may occur in quick succession, or may be spaced far appart. This does not consider possible Surrender/Attrition game end conditions, which could potentially occur prior to the Min Time Event number.

Click in the selection box at the top of any column to filter the results on that column.
